Toss it Out Today: Yellow NO. 5


It is funny how technology changes your access to information. Yesterday  I went skiing with my dad and afterward we went back to his house for a late lunch.

He brings out a huge jar or seasoning and says, “I got this at Costco, and then noticed it had yellow 5. You probably don’t like that”

I responded, “that is true. I don’t like any food coloring. there is no reason for it other than to change the color. I don’t want anything that is man made from a chemical lab my food.¬† I like what mother nature provides.”

So what should I do?

Throw it away.

What is so bad about Yellow 5.

IDK, let me ask google, like you just taught me!

OK goggle, WHY is yellow 5 bad?

The result shocked me! As my phone starting talking back with the answer, I ran back inside to tell my father.

Oh WOW. Listen to this:

According to Stop Killing the Kids, “Now there’s another additive causing hyperactivity in our children: Tartrazine.

Sadly, this isn’t the only side effect that FD&C Yellow 5 has…it has also been linked to asthma, migraines, thyroid cancer, anxiety, clinical depression, blurred vision, purple spots on your skin and unexplainable itchy skin.” July 12, 2010
