Doctor’s tip: Are fake food dyes on the way out?

Although some artificial food dyes have been banned by the FDA, others haven’t, in spite of known health concerns, due to pressure by the food industry (nutritionfacts.org). The Associated Press had a recent article saying that some food companies are finally “getting it,” due to demand by the public to avoid artificial food additives. That means you will have opportunities to choose foods without the dyes if you read the packaging carefully.

Dr. Feinsinger of Carbondale, who retired in February from Glenwood Medical Associates after 41 years as a family physician, will provide a health tip each Tuesday in the Post Independent. Contact him at gfeinsinger@comcast.net.
