Healthy Food Action Webinar: Driven to Distraction: Food, Chemicals and Child Behavior 
Wednesday, February 8, 2012
12:00 noon eastern / 11:00 a.m. central
Compelling science now suggests synthetic food dyes and caramel colorings often added to candy–as well as junk food and other kids’ foods–can affect their learning and behavior, and may increase cancer risk. This science forced the adoption of safer alternatives to food dyes in the UK; the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been petitioned to do the same. An FDA science advisory committee reviewed the new science in April 2011. Developmental brain toxins are also found as additives to other children’s products, like toys and lunch boxes. Child advocates are pushing for policy reforms addressing these risks as well. Join speakers Karen Bowman, MN, RN, COHN-S, Michael Jacobson, PhD, Lawrence Rosen, MD, and David Wallinga, MD, for a discussion of the latest science and the policy reforms now being debated.
