Tip of the Week!
Artificial food dyes.
There has been much debate regarding artificial food dyes and their safety in humans. The Center for Science in the Public Interest is a group that has been vocally arguing the need for stricter regulations for artificial food dyes for years. Requesting that the FDA require health warning labels attached to foods that contain artificial foods dyes and the health risks associated to each.
Many of the health risks include cancer, hyper activity and behavioral changes in children and allergies just to name a few. You can find an excellent article on the subject here.
I thought what better time to rethink artificial dyes is Easter. A time for dying Easter eggs can be done naturally.
You can find step by step instuctions here to have natural Easter eggs this year!
Happy Easter everyone!
