To be filed under: Well, That Was Quick — as reported here last week, a super special expert panel of FDA-employed scientists met this past Wednesday to decide whether or not a 2007 British study (and decades of skeptical querying) regarding the relationship between artificial food dyes and hyperactivity issues in children, like ADHD, were linked. The FDA decision? Let the reds, blues, yellows, and greens flow, according to the New York Times — the panel voted Thursday that artificial color is no bother. A round of Kool-Aid for all our friends!
