Food Dyes Cause Hyperactivity

The FDA will host a public meeting to discuss the link between artificial coloring and hyperactivity.

The dye that makes ketchup red could be a cause of hyperactivity in children. While the possible link between artificial coloring and hyperactivity has been discussed for the past 40 years, recent research that found increased levels of hyperactivity in children who consumed artificial coloring has prompted the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to step in. Today and Thursday, the FDA will host public meetings on the subject, hearing from both experts and interested parties, and will use the talks to decide on a course of action. The FDA currently approves of seven dyes for use in the US.
