Yellow No. 6 and Red No. 40 have been linked to allergy and hypersensitivity in humans. In animal testing, excess Yellow No. 6 was associated with chromosomal abberation and increased incidence of cancer. According to the CSPI, Red No. 40 led to DNA damage and a subsequent increase in the incidence of tumors in animal studies; human toxicity studies, however, are currently lacking. Blue No. 2 has been linked to an increased incidence of brain and bladder tumors in animal testing. Human toxicity studies are currently lacking.

Titanium dioxide is widely used as a colorant–to whiten or provide opacity–in a variety of consumer products, including paints, plastics, papers, inks, foods, toothpastes, and cosmetic and skin care products. Many of the safety concerns are related to occupational hazards, which have been linked to cancer and Alzhemier's Disease.
