Tell the FDA: We don’t want aspartame in our milk.

Big food companies have a new secret weapon aimed right at your kid’s sweet tooth: milk.

Yes, milk. The powerful dairy lobby is pushing the FDA to approve the artificial sweetener aspartame for use in dairy products. The goal is to turn the wholesome drink into another artifical flavor-laden sweet snack.

Hyper-sweet additives like aspartame rewire children’s brains so that they always want sugary foods, turning the kids into tiny consumption machines.1 This constant craving fattens up the food companies’ bottom lines as it fattens up their customers, leading to our current obesity epidemic.

Tell the FDA to say no to hyper-sweeteners in healthy food. Stop aspartame from entering our milk.

For decades, food companies have poured millions into research into creating foods that trick our brain into overconsuming. As obesity has surged and the country has become more health-conscious, the industry has moved into formerly healthy foods, pumping them up with sugar, salt, and fat until they, too become part of the problem.

Aspartame has a particularly sketchy history as an artificial substance. It has long been linked to a host of health issues, and was banned by the FDA before a Reagan appointee rigged a committee to approve it.2 The food industry claims that aspartame helps fight obesity by offering up a low-calorie alternative, but by training the brain to crave sweets, aspartame’s been having the opposite effect. Putting it into milk and serving it up to kids is the last straw. Join us today in telling the FDA no way on aspartame in milk.

  1. I guess they’ll be changing the milk motto “Milk, it does a body good!” to “Aspartame milk, it brings a body death!”

  2. Aspartame in Milk. This is absolutely outrageous and disgusting. I can’t believe people are letting them get away with this. These bastards are poisoning everything we have. There’s no need to put that shit in the milk. It’s fine the way it is. The bastards never heard of the saying, “If it ain’t broke, DON’T FIX IT!”. Their motto is, “If it’s still clean, POISON IT!”. These sick bastards are gonna fry one of these days.

  3. I just have to say, they poison the milk in China and baby powder all the time and Chinese people import their milk from the U.S. and other countries in order to keep their babies healthy because they don’t trust their government and their own milk products, knowing that the businesses are corrupt and will taint the products to save their company money. However, I never thought I’d live to see the day that they would do that here in the U.S. This is absolutely criminal. No place is safe anymore. When will this insanity ever end?

  4. Well, industrial milk has no health benefits as is. You’re better off drinking organic, grass-fed, unpasteurized (raw) milk. The industrial stuff is full of hormones, antibiotics, and dead pus (since it is heated, the bacteria die but are still there).

  5. I am allergic to aspartame! I get a migraine and vomit …. my body doesn’t WANT it! Seriously … it can’t be allowed to be unlabeled!
