High Health Hazard, Synthetic dyes can be harmful for Human health and for the environment.

Synthetic or man-made dyes are often highly toxic and a threat to the environment. A popular group of dyes called 'Azo-dyes" are considered poisonous as they give off toxic chemicals called amines. The dyeing process also uses other harmful substance such as dioxin, formaldehyde and heavy metals which can ultimately be environmental pollutants through disposal of waste during manufacturing processes.
