Fake food...

Living France - - What's New -

France is aim­ing to ban a food ad­di­tive widely found in sweets, bis­cuits, cakes and even ice cream af­ter stud­ies found it may be cancerous. Ti­ta­nium diox­ide, is known as the ar­ti­fi­cial colour E171 and is used as a whiten­ing and bright­en­ing agent but has no nu­tri­tional or preser­va­tive qual­i­ties. Sci­en­tists say the nano-par­ti­cles are small enough to pass through the pro­tec­tive walls of or­gans and have cre­ated pre­can­cer­ous le­sions in rats. You can find a full list of all the prod­ucts con­tain­ing the ad­di­tive at in­fo­nano. agir­pourlen­vi­ron­nement.org/ ad­di­tif-e171/
