Food with E numbers: hyperactivity, learning difficulties

  1. E numbers can no longer be ignored in our diet. There are E numbers that are better to avoid, but there are E numbers that should really be avoided. E numbers approved by the EU can lead to hyperactivity, nervousness and behavioral changes. Unfortunately, some E numbers are still considered harmless, while nothing could be further from the truth.

E numbers that poison and affect cognitive ability

  1. E numbers are unfortunately an indispensable part of our diet. There are E numbers that you should avoid, but also E numbers that you should really avoid. Additives, dyes, preservatives, sweeteners and other E-numbers approved by the EU can cause hyperactivity and nervousness, among other things. An English study showed that in children between 3 and 9 years old, sweets and soft drinks stimulate behavioral changes. They exhibited boisterous behavior and a lack of concentration and other cognitive skills. Additives that have the most influence on behavior are artificial colors, preservatives, flavors and various sweeteners. On the one hand, one must of course not get into a cramp, on the other, realize that excess is harmful

Do not get into a cramp, but assume 'excess harm'

  1. There are E numbers that are still considered harmless, E numbers that are not harmless but about which there are still conflicting scientific conclusions and E numbers that have real consequences for mental and physical well-being. This article describes a number of the last category (E numbers that must be absolutely avoided). If one receives small amounts of some of the E-numbers below, then there is no man overboard. But excess hurts and let this be the problem in our western world now.

Propylene Glycol E-1520

  1. Propylene glycol is widely used in pharmaceuticals. Anyone with poor kidney function is at risk of poisoning. Normally propylene glycol is excreted by the kidneys. But when the kidneys have a reduced function, they are not able to excrete this substance sufficiently. The symptoms that one can get then include cardiac arrhythmias, agitation, organ failure and coma. This is not used in many foods, but it is used in soups such as mushroom soup and in E-405 (Propylene glycoalginate).

Polyvinyl chloride E-1201

  1. This is a dangerous thickener, emulsifier, brightener and stabilizer. But also a glazing agent for candy! It is used to kill ants, hairspray, coatings, printing paper and is contained in glue sticks. The main applications of PVP are: hairspray, pharmaceutical soluble tablets, adhesives, coatings for printer paper and the inks for ink-jet printers and in foodstuffs, PVP serves, among other things, as a binder or stabilizer to give the foodstuffs a glossy appearance. In addition, PVP was the base ingredient of the glue in Pritt markers until 2000 when it was replaced by chemically modified starch. It is harmful to the respiratory tract, among other things.

Xylitol (E-967), saccharin (E-954) and aspartame (E-951), sweeteners

  1. Contains the poisonous formoline, which is responsible for the development of migraines. In addition to formoline, these substances also contain methyl alcohol and this substance increases the risk of breast cancer and MS. Formolin affects our brain and memory and can even change our brain structure! This emerged from a large-scale investigation in China. The effects of formoline go beyond modifying our brain structure, but can even lead to brain damage and Alzheimer's.

Sorbic acid E-200

  1. Sorbic acid is found in lemonade syrup, mayonnaise, curry, pastry, biscuits and biscuits. Sorbic acid is naturally present in certain berries, but is usually prepared synthetically. This acid can cause skin irritation and respiratory irritation. According to the commodity law, it can be used in countless foods and products, despite the many irritations and allergies that this substance causes. Sorbic acid releases histamine and should therefore be avoided in a histamine-free diet. Paradoxically, sorbic acid is in respiratory syrup such as licorice syrup.

Azorubine (crimson) E122

  1. Azorubine is a synthetic red azo dye that is found in candy (with bright colors), alcohol and soft drinks. Azo dyes do not occur in nature. One may only have 4 mg per kg of body weight. Azo dyes have been linked to ADHD and asthma. Especially in people who are intolerant to salicylates, which include aspirin, it intensifies allergic reactions and reactions such as hives and respiratory problems. The WHO recommends that the dye not be used on toddlers, babies and children. Azo dyes are banned in America, Japan, Norway and Sweden. It is strange then that the nutrition center and the European Food Safety Authority report that Azo dyes are safe. Studies really show that children become hyperactive from Azo dyes. Yet the EU has decided that products containing Azo dyes should be labeled.

Cochineal E-120

  1. Cochineal (carmine) is a natural coloring agent. The colorant is obtained from the scale insect that occurs in nature on Opuntia species. The scale insect has a red pigment (cochineal) inside. Cochineal is used in food and is widely used in cosmetics: in lipsticks and nail polishes. Nutritionally: in fruit jellies, jams, juice, strawberry syrups, red soups such as tomato soup. You can use 5mg per kg of body weight of cochineal, but excess is harmful. If there is a lot of snacking, and use is made of syrups and jellies, fruit yogurt, drinking yogurt, then there is quickly excess. Cochineal in cosmetics can induce allergic reactions, and in food this can cause hyperactivity and concentration problems. In some cases, cochineal causes anaphylactic shock.

Benzoic acid E-210

  1. Benzoic acid is a preservative and food acid, against yeasts and bacteria in acid products. Benzoic acid is found in many fruits, mushrooms, cinnamon, cloves, and dairy products. It is made chemically from toluene. Only 5mg per kg of body weight may be used of this. Benzoic acid is a histamine releaser and can cause allergic reactions, anaphylactic shock and respiratory problems.
