Food additives might make kids squirrely, wiggy, or even jiggy, according to a 2001 UK government study. The results of the study are unsurprisingly being pooh-poohed in the same way as smoking vs. cancer, or pollution vs. global warming. [story]

Not to split hairs or anything...each food coloring has it's own unique number, and I'm afraid #5 belongs to Yellow. Yellow 5 is a bright yellow, unlike it's comrade Yellow 6, which is actually orange. You can have Red 40 or Red 3. Red 3 is really pink, tastes terrible, and will stick on your skin for days and days. Memories of being the best man in a wedding with bright pink hands, after sticking my arms in a 20 gallon cooker of hot water, propylene and red #3. The old Red #4 has been banned for years, but can still be sold overseas so I've inhaled a good bit of that as well. Red 4 is what killed the red M&M;...the new ones are made with Red 40, which they assure us is perfectly safe.
