Did you know that more than 10,000 chemicals are allowed to be added to our food, but not all are tested for safety?  Join Food Sleuth Radio host and Registered Dietitian, Melinda Hemmelgarn, for her interview with Sheela Sathyanarayana, M.D., MPH,  associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Washington, and co-author of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ new policy statement on “Food Additives and Child Health.” Dr. Sathyanarayana discusses the regulatory system that provides loopholes for manufacturers, as well as the impact of direct (colors, flavors) and indirect (through manufacturing and packaging) food additives on children’s health and behavior. She also provides tips for protecting children from harmful additives.
