Got milk? A better question would be: Got seizures, migraine headaches, brain tumors or depression? If the dairy industry has its way, a major cause of these disorders in the form of aspartame could soon be a common ingredient in the milk supply. Bear in mind this is the chemical that has been linked with a laundry list of health issues, many of which are neurological. In light of the proposed new FDA rule that would allow artificial sweeteners like aspartame to be covertly included in dairy products, we have to consider: Is this really a chemical we want hidden within a popular food staple?
Legally lace food with poison and profit
As reported in the Natural News article, “U.S. dairy industry petitions FDA to approve aspartame as hidden, unlabeled additive in milk, yogurt, eggnog and cream,” the dairy industry is up to its old tricks, attempting to alter the definition of milk through the FDA. If the proposed new rule is approved, artificial sweeteners like aspartame can be added to milk without being listed on the label. What this means is that a majority of dairy (including yogurt, cream, eggnog and whipping cream) can secretly harbor aspartame — and turn a nice profit for artificial sweetener companies in the process. This is great news for the share holders at NutraSweet and other aspartame peddlers, but not so wonderful for the physical and mental health of the U.S. population.
Janet Starr Hull, creator of the Aspartame Detox Program, believes “aspartame is the common denominator for over 92 different health symptoms at the root of modern disease.”
