Dear EarthTalk: What is the "Dirty Dozen Guide to Food Additives?"

 -- Meredith LaGarde, New Orleans, LA

April 8, 2015 (San Diego’s East County) - The Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit dedicated to protecting human health and the environment through research, education and advocacy, launched its “Dirty Dozen Guide to Food Additives” in November 2014 to educate consumers about which food additives are associated with health concerns, which are restricted in other countries, and/or which just shouldn’t be in our foods to begin with. EWG hopes the new guide will help consumers avoid unhealthy foods and also influence policymakers to develop more stringent rules for food producers moving forward.
