Yellow #5 FD&C :  This dye has been associated with to hypersensitivity reactions  and to cause hyperactivity and other behaviour effects  in children. The chemical structure is very similar to benzoate and salicylate (the active ingredient in aspirin). Yellow no. 5 seems to be mutagenic (aka mutation-causing; DNA-damaging) in animals.  EWG Rating: 3
