- Note - This is likely the biggest non-surprise 'study
result' of the last 50 years. The vile, despicable commercial food industry
has been POISONING hundreds of millions of children and destroying the
lives of many of them for decades...with total, leering impunity. There
has never been any question that these chemicals and 'additives' approved
as 'safe' by the hideously corrupt Monsanto/Big Pharma/Factory Farming/AMA-dominated
FDA - and the FSA in the UK - are toxic, life-altering, life-destroying
- So, now with an 'official' study finally on the table,
what will U.S. food conglomerates and 'candy' companies and corporations
do to voluntarily to clean up their products? Probably nothing.
We all know what to expect from the FDA: more corruption, deal-making,
lies, deceit, obfuscation (how about aspartame for one small example) and
the ultimate sacrificing of human lives, especially our children, to the chemical
additive and food preservative industries. Read these quotes from the following
- "The consequences can be very serious for both children
and adults...The reaction in children can be horrendous in terms of mood
swings with crying, screaming, inability to sleep...There can also be physical
reactions such as difficulty in breathing on skin rashes. For a young
person there is also a risk of quite angry mood swings."
- Now, one would hope it wouldn't take any more information
than that to enable people to also see the DIRECT CAUSAL LINK between the
knowing poisoning of children's food with toxic additives and preservatives,
and the mega-BILLION dollar psychotropic childhood drugging industry with
its front line destroyer/killers of Ritalin and its stable of antidepressant
SSRIs which permanently, physically change the brain and decimate the lives
in countless human beings. Is there collusion between the 'food protection
agencies' (FDA, FSA, etc) and the pharmaceutical industry? At the very
LEAST, there is a luxurious, astronomically profitable trillion dollar
- The food additive chemical poisoning of our children
(and adults) into aberrant, dysfunctional, 'anti-social' mental and psychological
behavior which is then 'treated' by the complicit and seemingly insane
psychological/medical industry which leaps to put put children on their
killer medications to 'correct' what are usually nothing more than toxic
chemical reactions is beyond heinous. The black humor of poisoned children
being diagnosed NOT as having been poisoned but as suffering from phony
disorders like ADD, ADHD and other 'anti-social' and learning disability
monikers boggles the mind and should send a surge of outrage through every
parent on the planet.
- So, read on and don't say we, and thousands of others,
haven't been trying to warn of this for the last 20-plus years. Read labels,
buy only organic and NON-GMO, and try to give your children (and yourselves)
a fighting chance for a normal life. God knows there are dozens of other
destroyers of lives waiting and lurking to greet them as they grow up.

- Food Additives Tied To Child Behavior Problems
- The proof food additives ARE as bad as we
- By Sean Poulter
- Parents have been warned to avoid artificial additives
used in drinks, sweets and processed foods amid a link to behaviour problems
in children. A study funded by the government's Food Standards
Agency(FSA) is understood to have drawn a link with temper tantrums and
- There are also concerns about allergic reactions such
as asthma and rashes.
- The findings are potentially explosive for the entire
food industry, which faces the need to reformulate a vast array of children's
products. Vyvyan Howard, professor of bio-imaging at Ulster
University and an adviser to the FSA, called on parents and manufacturers
to protect children. He said: "It is biologically plausible
that they could be having an effect. "Parents can protect their
children by avoiding foods containing the additives. I personally do not
feed these sorts of foods to my 15-month-old daughter."
- He called on manufacturers and supermarkets to remove
the additives on a precautionary basis. He said: "It is
the right thing to do to remove these additives from children's foods.
They have no nutritional value, so why put them in?
- "There are very tight restrictions banning these
additives from foods designed for children under the age of one. "But
why stop there? Children's brains and nervous systems are developing beyond
the age of one."
- Prof Howard is not a member of the FSA committee assessing
the latest research, however he did advise on how the study should be conducted. Experts
on the FSA's Committee on Toxicity(CoT) are expected to say that parents
who want to minimise any risk of an adverse reaction should avoid these
- Some leading companies have already responded to mounting
evidence of harm caused by chemical additives, particularly the vivid colours
used to dress up products.
- Smarties has dropped artificial colours with the result
the blue variety has been axed. Sainsbury's recently announced
a ban on artificial colours and flavours from 120 own label soft drinks.
This follows similar moves by Marks & Spencer and the Co-op.
- The research, carried out by a team from Southampton
University, appears to confirm earlier studies suggesting additives can
cause reactions, either individually or as a cocktail.
- The colours, tested on groups of three-year-olds and
eight-to-nine year olds, were tartrazine (E102), ponceau 4R (E124), sunset
yellow (E110), carmoisine (E122), quinoline yellow (E104) and allura red
- The team also looked at the effect of the preservative
sodium benzoate (E211), which is commonly used in soft drinks. Precise
details of the research findings are being kept secret until they can be
peer reviewed and published in a scientific journal.
- However, a source at Southampton University told the
food industry's magazine, The Grocer, that their results are in line with
earlier findings, published in 2004.
- The original research, which took place on the Isle of
Wight, involved giving fruit drinks to children aged three. In some weeks,
these were laced with additives. Parents reported changed behaviour
when the youngsters were given the additives.
- However, the original findings were questioned because
they relied on anecdotal reports from parents while the fact the children
were so young made it difficult to measure their behaviour in a meaningful
way. Because of these doubts, a second tranche of research was
commissioned following advice from an expert committee, which included
- The Founder of the Hyperactive Children Support Group,
Sally Bunday, said there is good evidence that artificial additives can
have a harmful effect.
- She said: "The consequences can be very serious
for both children and adults who are sensitive to these artificial colours.
"The reaction in children can be horrendous in terms of mood
swings with crying, screaming, inability to sleep.
- "There can also be physical reactions such as difficulty
in breathing on skin rashes. For a young person there is also a risk
of quite angry mood swings."
- The founder of the organic brand Organix, Lizzie Vann,
has been campaigning for a ban on all artificial additives from children's
- "The use of artificial additives in children's foods
means we are conducting a long-term experiment on our children's health,"
- "If the Government is serious about improving children's
nutrition the ban on artificial food additives must be a priority."
- The Food & Drink Federation, which speaks for manufacturers,
said the colours and chemicals used by the industry are proven to be safe. "The
use of food additives is strictly regulated under European law," it
said. "They must be approved as safe by the appropriate
European scientific committee before they can be used...Consumers' intake
of food additives is also closely monitored.
- "A recent European Commission report on 'Dietary
Food Additive Intake' indicated that consumption of all types of additives
was within the strict safety limits set by the legislation. Particular
attention was given to consumption by children."
- The FSA and Southampton University refused to comment
until the research has been officially published.
