hinder mental development. This means that medications with dyes that are given to calm or assist a person with autistic or ADHD issues may also be the culprit in this. Why? Because food coloring or dyes can cause allergic and contribute to disruptive behavior problems if people are allergic or have a particular sensitivity to them. Many people do not of course find out about this problem or reaction until a medication is taken and or a food is digested. This is crappy, really crappy to find that the medications you need to take and the foods you so want to eat will harm you if you are sensitive to the dyes and additives in them. As these dyes can also be in medications such as ACE inhibitors for blood pressure. Dyes such as FD&C Blue Dye #1 and 2, Yellow Dye #5 and 6, Green Dye #3 and Red Dye#3 and 40 may not only be in your foods but the medications you take also. Sure if the outer capsule can be removed fine, but if the entire pill is red then what do you do?
The great thing about technological advancement is that there is a test that an be done to see if you have an intolerance to food additives and or food colorings and dyes. The lab test for food additives and coloring sensitivity intolerance takes a blood sample to measure the body's reaction to not only food dyes and colorings but also to food additives and those containing petroleum. This type of test would be useful for not only the young, but for the elderly and those getting up there in age since the body is just reacting to the outsourcing of jobs and this tough, hardened world we live in. So we get old or are birthed into mental challenges that require assistance of some sort. This usually involves taking medications. If the dye in medications is strong enough to cause an allergic reaction or complicate a mental disorder, then it should be removed from a standpoint that medication is supposed to help. I know, I know- medications help with one problem and cause side effects or reactions that usually cause other problems, that you need to take more medications for. Perhaps by abbreviating the medication on a pill or capsule will not only help recognize a medication, then the dye will not need to be used. The pharmaceutical industry may one day implement a periodic chart for prescription drugs and over the counter medications available for the general public and then begin to list these medicines in a periodic way and put medications by their classification, name, use and abbreviation form. Then the of name of the medication in abbreviated form and it's use can be put on the pill or capsule itself. For example: Atorvastatin can be abbreviated as ATV and it's use is for Cholesterol and that can be abbreviated as CHOL. This way of medication identification on a pill or capsule along with the strength of the medication is useful and it would not take a Rhodes Scholar to know the difference between the pills and that you don't die trying! Wow, that was a good one!
