What's In Your Halloween Candy?

Might want to think twice about what's in those trick or treat bags and bowls of candy that are everywhere. The cover article of the new issue of Science News is an interesting one regarding the safety of nanoparticles that are added to foods for color enhancement and the like. There's a chart showing levels of titanium dioxide in a bunch of foods, and M&Ms and Good & Plenty candies are on the list (chewing gum is also well represented). Glad I stick with at least natural and largely organic foods, although it seems some nanoparticles can appear naturally as well.
