Food Health-Warning for Food Colorings to Be Considered by F.D.A. Panel–NY

I get many e-mails from people asking me how to transition to a vegetarian diet.  Even though I give them a lot of basic foods and tips to transition with, one of the things that I’ve found most important is to read the labels of the non fresh (boxed or packaged) foods I buy.  When I first got married my hubby and I lived with some relatives in Chicago.  One of them was battling an illness and had a friend come to help her with diet tips.  Well, her friend was a dietitian.  The dietitian sat down and went over what she ate and also stated that it was very important to avoid foods with high fructose corn syrup and food dyes.  That was over 10 years ago and I still continue to check labels for additives and sugar content.  I’ve even have my son accustomed to looking at the label of a product before he asks for it.  We all must be mindful about what we eat.  FYI,  I also have another article written on the subject posted on my blog under food health.    Check out the article below.
