When is crazy, beyond crazy? Putting Aspartame in Milk!
Aspartame is poison. Putting it in milk without putting it on the label is criminal.
Why are they adding radioactive fluoride to drinking water. BPA in plastics is poison. We the people should question what the elite in international corporations really want to do to us.
They seem to want to poison us, make us sick, make us sterile, and they seem out to kill us. GMO food is not safe. We should boycott any supermarkets that sell GM Salmon.
Frankenstein meat is not safe. Should we trust the EPA and the FDA when they more out to make the big international corporations richer while going after the little guy.
When the big guys poison us it seems that government and the mainstream corporate pirate media is out to cover it up and block free speech. It is time to fight back.

Aspartame in Milk Without a Label? Big Dairy Petitions FDA For Approval
Two powerful dairy organizations, The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF), are petitioning the Food and Drug Administration to allow aspartame and other artificial sweeteners to be added to milk and other dairy products without a label.
The FDA currently allows the dairy industry to use "nutritive sweeteners" including sugar and high fructose corn syrup in many of their products. Nutritive sweeteners are defined as sweeteners with calories.
This petition officially seeks to amend the standard of identification for milk, cream, and 17 other dairy products like yogurt, sweetened condensed milk, sour cream, and others to provide for the use of any "safe and suitable sweetener" on the market.
They claim that aspartame and other artificial sweeteners would promote healthy eating and is good for school children.
According to the FDA notice issued this week:
IDFA and NMPF state that the proposed amendments would promote more healthful eating practices and reduce childhood obesity by providing for lower-calorie flavored milk products. They state that lower-calorie flavored milk would particularly benefit school children who, according to IDFA and NMPF, are more inclined to drink flavored milk than unflavored milk at school.
Although the FDA considers aspartame to be a "safe and suitable" sweetener, a recent Yale University study appears to directly challenge the claim that aspartame would reduce obesity. In fact, the study concluded just the opposite, that artificial sweeteners actually contributed to obesity and Type 2 diabetes.
The IDFA and NMPF argue "that the proposed amendments to the milk standard of identity would promote honesty and fair dealing in the marketplace" yet they don't want changes to the labels on dairy products.
Accordingly, the petitioners state that milk flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners should be labeled as milk without further claims so that consumers can “more easily identify its overall nutritional value.
It's unclear how consumers can more easily identify the overall nutritional value of milk products that are flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners without labels.
Quoting Section 130.10 of the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990, the dairy giants claim a new label is not required because sugar is added to milk without labeling it, and "the modified food is not inferior in performance" and "'reduced calorie' (labels) are not attractive to children" so marketing as such is of no benefit or detriment.
The FDA has opened public comments until May 21 for anyone interested to "submit comments, data, and information concerning the need for, and the appropriateness of, amending the standard of identity for milk and the additional dairy standards."

Steven G. Erickson's comment posted to the FDA in the online form:
I consider Aspartame a poisonous chemical. I believe it should never be put in any milk or milk products. I believe that all ingredients in a product should be clearly displayed on the label. I believe that if Aspartame is allowed to be put in milk, or milk products, without it being listed as an ingredient, that any principals, officials, and any FDA officials should be prosecuted. Aspartame put in milk products would be a red flag. To me it would mean that Central Banks and Foreign Corporations have infiltrated the US Government. Please do not allow Aspartame in milk or milk products. It would be just another excuse for Americans to be "free" and "American" at the same time to be outside the US.
