A shocking video that exploded on Facebook like a bomb shows us how a fruit and vegetables seller injects chemicals to keep them looking fresh.
In June 2008, the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) asked FDA for complete prohibition of erythrosine usage in the United States.
On the other hand, the numerous toxicological researches from other researchers led experts to believe that erythrosine isn’t genotoxic.
Look at the video:
The chemical shown in the video, Erythrosine B, is usually used in the sweets (candies and cake gels). It is also used for coloring the pistachio’s shell, and it’s full of additives.
The American food association (FDA), in 1990 took out a partial prohibition of erythrosine usage, because according to some researches, over using it had caused cancer to the rats.
