so, I have gone through the tedious and at times painful task of detoxing my body of all artificial sweeteners, such as Sucralose, Aspartame and the like. It has taken a couple of weeks, has taken great vigilance to check all grocery products and my body did not like me. But I feel so much better for it, body and spirit.
Now I come across an article on Yahoo.
It is titled "Artificial Sweeteners in milk?"
Are you serious?
The FDA is seriously considering putting Sucralose and Aspartame in 17 different dairy products to make them more appealing to eat since dairy product consumption has decreased in the recent years! And what makes me FURIOUS is that they will NOT be required to LABEL it! Excuse me?!
First off, how is the trade off of getting people to eat and drink more dairy more beneficial than the many side effects of the chemical they will be ingesting?
Second off, how can they legally put this in the product and not disclose it to the public?
Now I will have to call the makers of all the dairy products that we use to assure ourselves that we can take them. This should not happen.
Just beside myself with frustration and anger. The FDA should not have the power to make this decision on our children's health without our knowledge. Let alone ours as adults.
