Scientists conducting a new study found that a higher intake of ultra-processed food is associated with higher risk of inflammatory bowel disease.
The results from recent scientific research suggest that certain artificial food dyes can cause inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) when the immune system has become dysregulated.
In May 2021 the European Food Safety Association (EFSA) announced that food dye additive “titanium dioxide” (aka the “white” nanoparticle food coloring *) is no longer considered safe when used as a food additive.
The commonly used food additive titanium dioxide–a nanoparticle (E171)–has once again been linked with serious health outcomes in yet another scientific study. Like the studies before it, the current study found that the food additive titanium dioxide holds the potential to do some real harm to the colon and gut microbiota, and to disrupt liver functioning.
The microbes that inhabit our bodies are influenced by what we eat, drink, breathe and absorb through our skin, and most of us are chronically exposed to natural and human-made environmental contaminants. In this study, scientists reviewed the research linking dozens of chemicals present in our personal care products, home care products, general environment and our food to changes in the gut microbiome and associated health challenges.
New research has linked an increase risk for celiac disease in young people to toxic chemicals commonly found in pesticides, nonstick cookware, and fire retardants.
Using new direct testing methods, scientific experts on the chemical BPA have made a new discovery: Previous estimates of the levels of BPA consumers are exposed to each day have been based on flawed, inaccurate testing methods. The previous measurements and estimates that have been used by regulatory agencies–including the FDA**–have underestimated exposure levels by as much as 44 times. With new, more advanced methods*** scientists are now able to see that previous estimates of exposure to the endocrine-disrupting chemical are far greater than regulators and legislators believed when establishing guidelines for what is “safe” exposure levels for U.S. children and adults.
Scientists are calling on corporations and regulators to stop unnecessarily exposing the public to potentially deleterious chemicals like PFAS.
More scientific findings linking food additive and nanoparticle Titanium Dioxide (used as a whitening agent in processed foods and medications) with serious adverse health reactions. As earlier studies have demonstrated, the current study links food additive Titanium Dioxide with triggering a host of serious inflammatory bowel diseases and even colorectal cancer.
A commonly used food additive may be the culprit in triggering consumers with celiac disease to experience adverse reactions. The … More
