I had eat chicken lolipop before a week. After eating, I found that the colour of the food was not natural, maybe it had artificial colours. Some of the colour stick to my hands. I washed my hands with handwash 4 to 5 time, still the colour was there. I am in great worry about my alimentary canal. Because the colour of my stool was similar to the colour added to the food. A week passed after that, still my stool colour is not normal. Will the colour which was added to the food stick to the intestine forever. Will it cause cancer?

Lybrate-user don't worry it will not cause cancer. Though artificial colours are known to be one of the causative agent for intenstinal cancer, it need long term frequent exposures. For the current problem, I will suggest you drink lot of water and take fiber rich diet. If constipation is there you can use isabgol.
