The FDA is currently seeking comments, additional scientific data, and other information related to the safety of titanium dioxide in foods until July 3, 2023.
BPA is a Health Risk, says Europe
In a new re-evaluation of the health effects of food chemical BPA, European Health Safety Experts (EFSA) have concluded that dietary exposure to bisphenol-A (BPA) is a health concern for consumers across all age groups. EFSA’s experts identified potentially harmful health effects of BPA on the immune system.
Food Dye Red 40 Triggers Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: Study
A new study has demonstrated that long-term consumption of Red 40 food dye can potentially trigger inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Skittles Lawsuit: Toxin Titanium Dioxide
Over the years we have published a number of studies linking the food additive titanium dioxide to a number of serious health consequences. Now a consumer has filed a lawsuit against Mars, Inc. arguing their candy “Skittles” are unfit to eat because they contain a known toxin (yes…titanium dioxide) that the company had pledged six years ago to phase out.
How Triclosan Harms Your Gut Microbiome
A new study has demonstrated that triclosan can trigger problems with gut microbiome and inflammation.
Common Food Additive Alters Your Microbiota, Triggers Severe Diseases: Scientists
Scientists discovered that a common food emulsifier CMC (Cellulose Gum/carboxymethylcellulose) and some other emulsifiers, altered gut bacteria resulting in more severe disease in a range of chronic inflammatory conditions, including colitis, metabolic syndrome and colon cancer.
IBD Risk Increases with Ultra-Processed Foods
Scientists conducting a new study found that a higher intake of ultra-processed food is associated with higher risk of inflammatory bowel disease.
Food Dyes may Trigger Colitis, IBD in Some People: Study
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.
Food Dye Titanium Dioxide Declared Unsafe by Europe
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.
Consumer BPA Exposure Much Higher than Originally Thought
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.
