Students have pointed to the dangerous, but organizers decided to respond. The controversy surrounding the colored powders used during races "Color Me Rad" no less swollen. On Monday, the organizers wanted to fend off "accusations" brought by the National School of Chemistry of Rennes they consider "false" and "defamatory".

Students studying in Rennes colored powders appreciate the color concept works or the Color Me Rad.

Participants are sprayed with colored powders, but if the target is based on damaging power festival would not be taken into account. In Rennes, these are the students of chemistry who opened the debate. They believe that irritation and/or respiratory skin may well be at the rendezvous. Given these results, so vigilance is required, but organizers are struggling.

No problems identified in the Color Me Rad

The body in charge of Color Me Rad shared a press release in which the results of this study slanderous and false considered.
