Prior to the November 2012 election, Big Ag, Big Chem, and assorted other evildoers, willingly poured mega-millions into their deceitful campaign against Prop. 37 in California, in order to dupe gullible voters into voting against that Proposition. And their lies worked.
Now, the proverbial chickens have come home to roost. We see that the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) has just petitioned the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) not only to allow the carcinogenic artificial sweetener, Aspartame, to be added to our milk and other dairy products, but also to NOT BE REQUIRED to list Aspartame or any other artificial sweeteners on the milk or dairy product container!
Presently the FDA requires milk and other dairy products that are artificially sweetened to clearly state that on the list of ingredients. And that’s the way it must remain. If the dairy industry wants to put noxious chemical additives in our milk, we have an ABSOLUTE RIGHT TO KNOW!
