COMMON FOOD ADDITIVES
Food additives have been used by mankind for centuries. Salt, sugar and vinegar were among the first and used to preserve foods. In the past 30 years, however, with the advent of processed foods, there has been a massive explosion in the chemical adulteration of foods with additives. Considerable controversy has been associated with the potential threats and possible benefits of food additives.
All additives have numbers (E numbers in Europe) so you can find out what they are. Some additives such as tartrazine (E102, a vivid yellow coloring) could trigger allergic reactions in people who suffer from asthma and eczema. It may also cause hyperactivity in certain children.
Most food additives are considered safe. However, some are known to be carcinogenic or toxic. Hyperactivity in children, allergies, asthma, and migraines are often associated with adverse reactions to food additives.
