Warning: Christmas colored chips, cookies and treats may be poisoning your children

Those Christmas-colored snack chips and store-bought cookies may look festive, but watch out: Eating them may cause side effects such as hyperactivity, especially in children. That’s because nearly all Christmas-colored foods achieve their colors through the use of artificial coloring chemicals, including Red #40.

These artificial coloring chemicals are derived from coal tars. They’re synthesized in chemical reactions in laboratories, then shipped to food manufacturers to be dripped into commercial food [2] recipes. Nearly all “guacamole [3]” products sold at the grocery stores — such as guacamole chips and dips — use artificial green coloring chemicals [4] in order to trick consumers into thinking they’re buying products made with real avocados.

Chemicals cause ADHD

The problem with all this is that scientific studies have linked artificial food coloring [5] chemicals to behavioral disorders in children [6] that can be diagnosed as ADHD (http://www.naturalnews.com/artifici… [7]). This means food coloring chemicals alter human brain [8] function. When combined with the other refined sugars and wheat ingredients typically used in holiday treats and sweets, artificial colors [9] can cause both children and adults to become hyperactive, moody and highly emotional. (Sounds just like Christmas [10] with the family, doesn’t it?)

If you really want peace on Earth this holiday season, avoid buying (or consuming) Christmas-colored snack chips, cookies, treats or other manufactured food items. They are almost all made with artificial red and green [11] food coloring chemicals.

And while you’re at it, remember to avoid Christmas meat [12] gifts because virtually all processed meat is made with sodium nitrite [13] to make it appear red (the sodium [14] nitrite acts sort of like a chemical color preservative and enhancer). What’s wrong with that? Sodium nitrite sharply increases the risk of colorectal cancer [15], pancreatic cancer, brain cancer and leukemia (http://naturalnews.com/sodium_nitri… [16]).

Please share this story with friends and family members so they can also avoid consuming coal [17] tar chemicals in their holiday foods this year.

Have a wonderful (and healthy) holiday season! And please avoid the Christmas-colored poisons in the food supply.
