Thousands of Children’s Treats Contain Additive Unsafe For Human Consumption
Did you know that thousands of children’s treats contain an additive unsafe for human consumption? The European Union says this additive is no longer safe for human consumption but the United States has taken no action! Here is what EWG reported:
Skittles, Starburst and thousands of other sweet treats marketed to children contain titanium dioxide – an additive European food safety regulators say is no longer safe for human consumption. Yet the U.S. hasn’t reassessed the potential threats in more than 50 years.
Titanium dioxide is used in popular candies and other processed foods to give a smooth texture or to work as a white colorant. The pigment can brighten other colors, making the food more vibrant and appealing, but the additive has no nutritional benefit.
Some scientists have for years raised concerns about the potential toxicity of titanium dioxide. Its use in the U.S. continues because of regulatory folly by the Food and Drug Administration, which allows problematic ingredients to remain undetected and unreviewed. The FDA last examined the risks of the additive in 1966, but research in recent years demonstrates there are possible health harms from titanium dioxide that warrant a fresh look from the agency.

Also, we only have until July 31, 2022, to sign Moms Across America’s letter to the FDA and USDA to ban this synthetic and harmful food die. Please take action here.
