To redefine milk to include aspartame is particularly worrisome, and dangerous, for kids. Aspartame, which was originally marketed by Monsanto in the 80s and 90s, has been linked to increased rates of Type 2 diabetes and obesity. Hyper-sweet additives like aspartame have been proven to rewire children’s brains so that they constantly crave sugary foods. According to a 60 Minutes report, “aspartame’s approval was one of the most contested in FDA history.” The FDA’s own toxicologist told Congress that the chemical is likely to cause brain tumors.
To the FDA: I don't want aspartame to be allowed in milk! - especially without clear labeling!
To the FDA:
Do not allow milk and dairy products to include aspartame or other artificial sweeteners."
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
