There’s a headline to make you choke on your morning cornflakes.
It refers to a new study undertaken for the UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) study by Southampton University,which suggests "seven colourings, including
tartrazine and sunset yellow, could affect children’s intelligence
by up to five IQ points," according to the Daily Telegraph.
The FSA is set to meet this week to consider "recommendations from its officials that manufacturers should
voluntarily remove six of the E numbers from their products while
further research is carried out on the seventh, sodium benzoate."
