Is Food Coloring Toxic?

Children encounter more artificial food dyes (food colorings) daily in items such as foods, beverages, medicines and toothpaste, than ever before.  In recent decades, this increase in exposure correlated with a marked increase in neuro-developmental disorders that affect behavior, such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.  Dr. Bernard Weiss began studying the links between food dyes and these neuro-developmental disorders in the late 1970s.  In this podcast Dr. Weiss, professor in the Department of Environmental Medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center, discusses why he remains convinced the two are connected.
