Artificial (non?) Color

Is there really an Artificial Color that actually makes things turn white?  My cottage cheese would seem to indicate that this is the case.  For some reason, this surprises me…

  1. Surely that should be artificial *all* colours (with optional u)

    New whiter than white cottage cheese.

  2. “Titanium dioxide dust, when inhaled, has recently been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen possibly carcinogenic to humans.[39] The findings of the IARC are based on the discovery that high concentrations of pigment-grade (powdered) and ultrafine titanium dioxide dust caused respiratory tract cancer in rats exposed by inhalation and intratracheal instillation.[40] The series of biological events or steps that produce the rat lung cancers (e.g. particle deposition, impaired lung clearance, cell injury, fibrosis, mutations and ultimately cancer) have also been seen in people working in dusty environments. “(Source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanium_dioxide)

    So eating it isn’t as bad as inhaling it… seems wrong.
