    Default Could Medicines Really Be Maiking Your Child Hyperactive?

    Steve Williams
    October 23 2013

    Some of the UK’s most popular brands of children’s medicine that are being sold over the counter every single day have been found to contain additives that are banned in food products because of a link to hyperactivity in children.
    A new report following an investigation by campaign group Action on Additives says additives and a preservative that are “banned” in food and drink products can be found in 52 brands of medicines, with 19 brands containing as many as four of the additives. Some products were targeted for children as young as two months.
    The colorings found in children’s medicines were identified as quinoline yellow (E104), sunset yellow (E110), carmoisine (E122) and Ponceau 4R (E124).

    As most of these additives are colouring, are they really necessary? Does it matter if the medicine is clear or uncoloured?

    Not to me it doesn't!
    No, srsly, medicines don't have to be appealing, in fact it's probably better if they were not.
