It’s always difficult to be a parent. But no parent should have to experience their worst nightmare!
This mom noticed that her young daughter was covered in a red rash of mysterious origins.
After some investigation, she finally figured out what was causing the rash! Her explanation on Facebook is going viral…
Had to take Harper to the doctors today. Had no clue what gave her this rash until Steve told me that she had Applejacks cereal for the first time this morning. Poor girl! Did more research on it and this is what I found…Apple Jacks has the most popular food dyes known to cause behavioral problems in children; yellow 6, blue 1, red 40 and BHT. These food dyes are now illegal in Europe, but perfectly acceptable in America. BHT is a common stabilizer in pesticides, gasoline, lubricants, and soaps, but are also found in Apple Jacks. Yellow 6 has been linked to tumors in lab mice and red 40 has been known to cause severe allergic reactions.
Wow! So the same food dyes that are banned throughout Europe are perfectly allowed in America… yet they gave this young girl a massive rash all over her body. This is outrageous.
Here is a list of ingredients from Apple Jacks, which is something parents should take note of. Clearly, it’s high in sugar, with plenty of dyes and other unnatural ingredients.
We are praying for this young girl’s recovery! All she wanted was to eat breakfast cereal, and now has to visit the doctors.
Please share this with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. It’s up to us to alert every parent about the dangers of food dyes!
