Suggestion on Additives

I am from Bangalore and pleased to see the food regulator engaging with us. after all food is very important, esp for those of us home makers who see issues regularly. I want to take Mr. Jindals comment and I feel that any packaged foods that have "additives with side effects" should be marked like:

Has Sachhrain for use by Diabetics, which has side effects.

Right now many cakes, pastries, candies, cholcolates, chewing gum, ice candies are having such additives and we are blindly consuming.

Just like ciggerates, these products should be marked and if not marked then they cannot be used. Please let us have discussion on this.

The manufacturers are attracting the customers by various chemical process in foods, which are not good for health. The government supervision on such products is virtually zero, unless there is serious hazards. more  
Manufacturers are promoting the sale of Sucralose (SugarFree), and people are blindly using it. Sucralose disturbs the normal flora of the intestines. This can lead to Cancer of the colon. We should encourage the public to consume natural products like jaggery instead of sugar and sugarfree. Government and NGOs should strive to educate people to keep away from such synthetic products. more  
daily if possible taking one time greens or cereals compulsorily have lesser efect on additives in our body don't ever forget traditional foods they will maintain our health properly even if you take cakes , choclates , or any modern foods remember to compensate will traditional foods more  
Use of ingredients having side affects and/or harmful to human lives in any way must be totally banned for use in any kind of eatables classifying this act as a criminal act. more  
Unhygienic coloring of food should be stopped more
