Abstract Chemical food colours can prove to be very destructive for human health. Artificial food colours can activate behaviours like hyperactivity in children; cause hypersensitivity (allergic) reactions; damage chromosomes; or even cause thyroid or urinary bladder tumors in some cases. Present study was taken up to investigate the harmful effects of these commonly used food colors. Tartrazine and curcumin are used to give yellow color to the food. Respiration has been used as the parameter to measure the effect of food colours on living organisms through recording the amount of CO2 emitted.
