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.

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.

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.

Common Additive in Food, Meds Linked with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and Colorectal Cancer

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.
