Tell Congress to Ban Artificial Food Dyes

Artificial food dyes greatly impact children's behavior as they can trigger attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Unfortunately, our government has not seen fit to ban these dangerous ingredients in our food.

Tell Congress enough is enough, these dyes have been known to trigger health issues since the 1970s. It's time to get them out of our food.

Major companies already leave these unhealthy ingredients out of their products in Europe. But money and lack of government action mean that they often still make artificially dyed versions of the same products in the United States. 

It's time for these companies to be required to craft our food the same way they are crafting it for Europeans---free of unhealthy, artificial dyes.

Dear Sirs,


We the undersigned ask that you ban artificial food dyes.


Artificial food dyes greatly impact children's behavior as they can trigger attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Unfortunately, you and our government has not seen fit to ban these dangerous ingredients in our food.
