couldn't find any that was DYE-FREE!!!!

It was so bizzarre on the weekend when I drove around tring to find a capsule without DYE in it. Even the pharmacists were confused and frustrated as to why on earth there needed to be red dye in a capsule. Like we aren't dyeing our hair with it!

It's for allergy sufferers!

If that didn't make me crazy I then went to find a Metamucil capsule to take for my constipation and AGAIN there was DYE in it!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just venting, sorry!

I continue to e-mail the companies to advocate ANTI-DYE's and unessesary chemicals and preservatives, I just don't understand it all!

It's so hard to find products that are WHOLE!

Back to the basics of cooking from scratch!

xo Chrys.

Oh I hear ya! I just had a baby 13 days ago. The public health nurses recommend that ALL babies take a vitamin D supplement. The list of ingredients include artificial flavors, artificial colors (like the baby is going to care what color it is) and BHA. Yeah...I want to start giving a daily dose of unhealthy crap to my newborn (and have him develop a taste preference for candy) :roll: . I think we'll go outside for our vitamin D instead.

DD age 9 1/2 -peanuts, nuts,
DD age 7 1/2 - milk, eggs, chicken, peanuts, treenuts, cats, dogs,
DS age 2 1/2
Husband- asthma, eggs, treenuts, fish, shellfish environmental
Self - penicillan, eurithromiacin, mild laytex allergy.

I found dye-free (but not flavorless) 'generic' Benadryl at Shopper's Drug Mart (pharmacy). It's Life Brand Allergy Formula (for kids), but maybe they have it for adults, or if you only take it once in a while, ask the pharmacist what the equivalent syrup dose would be for an adult.

Me - Kim - No allergies
DH Ben - 31 - Allergic to nuts and peanuts, lots of environmental allergies.
DD Anne - 4 - Asthma. Allergic to dairy, eggs, mustard, kiwi, peanuts, wheat and barley... for now...
DS Francois - 1 - No allergies so far...
