Abstract

Consider this: Mesodinium Rubrum (Myrionecta rubra), a red toxic algae (or marine ciliate), is widely recognized as a major issue in human health, and it is essential that these harmful algal blooms be eradicated over the next decade to avoid a major impact on bathers in US coastal waters. The key agent that makes the plankton red is FD&C Red 40 (US Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act), which has been proven by a number of researchers to accelerate the appearance of disease-​​resistant tumors and hyperactivity in children. …It’s true, really.
