Obama's war on Jello
From FoxNews -- After staunchly defending the safety of artificial food colorings, the federal government is for the first time publicly reassessing whether foods like Jell-O, Lucky Charms cereal and Minute Maid Lemonade should carry warnings that the bright artificial colorings in them worsen behavior problems like hyperactivity in some children.
Before long there won't be any substances in our lives that our regulatory overlords at the FDA don't blame for hyperactivity in children, and for which lazy parents can sedate them with drugs to keep them quiet.
I'm sorry but if your caterwauling, misbehaved brat can't keep his yap shut for five minutes, it's not because of red dye #3 in his jello. And if you're obstinate enough to think it is, then stop feeding him jello.
