Read the Label

Have you ever taken something and not read the label? I have, in fact I did that the other day. I wanted to start taking vitamin C. So I bought Kirkland a brand that I use to trust. Then I was sitting at my desk and had the thought to read the label. So I read the label. Read for yourself below. In fact go to the link below and read it for yourself. Have you ever thought  how did they color them orange? I didn’t know they used Yellow #6 & Red #40.

Go ahead and google the health affects of food dyes.

 Hidden Risks of Food Dyes

The three most widely used culprits—Yellow 5, Yellow 6 and Red 40—contain compounds, including benzidine and 4-aminobiphenyl, that research has linked with cancer. Research has also associated food dyes with problems in children including allergies, hyperactivity, learning impairment, irritability and aggressiveness.
