Food additives--Toxicology; Food preservatives; Coloring matter in food
Food additives are listed by functional category and discussed in terms of the scale of their use and relative risks in terms of long-term human toxicity. The greatest risks appear to lie with the antimicrobial preservative agents, and food colors (which serve only a cosmetic purpose); these and the synthetic sweeteners are discussed in relatively greater detail.
