What are the Problems with Artificial Colors?

Certain colors when consumed by children have been found to lead to hyperactivity. The Center for Science in the Public Interest wants the FDA to ban 8 different dyes which they claim cause these issues in children. [1] There are also some color dyes that can cause allergic reactions. [2] 

Artificial Colors That You May Want To Avoid

Blue 2: A high dosage of Blue No. 2 has been shown to cause significant increases in brain cancers and other abnormal cell development. [3] 

Green 3: Green 3 has been found to have tumorigenic effects in animals during lab experiments. [4] 

Yellow 3: May cause mild allergic reactions – especially in people who are sensitive to aspirin.

Yellow 6: May be associated with adrenal gland and kidney cancer as well as possible allergic reactions.

Red 3: FDA considered banning it in 1983 due to a possible link to thyroid tumors.
