food dyes and children,

Researchers at Southampton University found that consuming certain synthetic dyes with preservative sodium benzoate increased hyperactivity in kids ages 3-9

A US. study published in Science found that when children who scored high on a scale measuring hyperactivity consumed a food-dye blend they performed worse on tests that measured their ability to recall images than when they drank a placebo



While studies and reports from parents have linked food dyes to children's behaviour. the F DA has shown

no conclusive evidence to link the dyes to either ADHD or children's behavior: and say that more tests should be done before they will move to ban artificial dyes



In 2009. Great Britain asked its food companies to stop using artificial dyes in food

They worried about the link between artificial dyes and hyperactivity and cancer

Today, companies like Kellogg�۪s and Kraft Foods no longer use artificial dyes in their UK products
