The Villejuif Leaflet

In 1976, a leaflet began to circulate throughout Europe warning of a number of alleged carcinogens. Highest on the list was citric acid. Millions of people saw and may have believed the leaflet. The false rumor persisted well into the 1980s. The leaflet came to be known as the Villejuif leaflet, because one version of it claimed the information came from Villejuif Hospital. [wikipedia]
