Are the artificial colours in junk food linked to cancer?

Are the artificial colours in junk food linked to cancer?

Not any more: I don't like them either, but each dye gets a thorough going-over as a possible mutagen (the only thing likely to cause cancer apart from preposterously high doses) using the ames test. By 1988, all the apparent mutagens were gone; since then, i've only seen claims of dye mutagens in food (which any good scientist would grab up in a minute) in marginal journals. ...Read more

Some dyes are carcinogenic, so are nitrites in hot dogs. This means that when fed to laboratory rats, those that get substance x get some form of cancer when 100 times dose is used. Small infrequent use works. ...Read more

Unlikely: The lens materia is essentially inert and not reacted upon by our bodies when placed in the eye. Lens implants have been used in millions of people since 1949 and there have only been a small number of reports of reactions. It turns out that the reactions were to chemicals used to clean the lenses, which are no longer used. There's no increased risk in patients with allergic eyes. ...Read more
