Wow, it's amazing what lengths companies are going to now. I'm lactose intolerant so don't drink the stuff but I dont' think I would anyway. God knows what's in it.

This is a disgrace! I am still shocked at how insane the system is these days. I yearn for a world where an organisation such as the FDA makes choices based on what actually is healthy and genuinely helpful and what actually harms, not which corporations push which agenda. It sounds like common sense and yet it really is little but a fantasy.

We consume no meat & no dairy in my house, we are all adults and no one suffers from anemia or has osteoporosis and I would not give aspartame to my kids either.
Thank You! Noted.

I volunteered in a hospital.

They were most generous with the patients providing lots of: sodas, coke, sprite, diet available, puddings and jellos some of which had no expiration date, popsicles, ice cream, coffee, tea
artifical sweeteners (many choices of the poison) milk, meat sandwiches which tended to get out dated.....

I complained but it didn't do any good.

Doctors don't make money off of well patients.

I quit for ethical reasons.....I disagreed with keeping the business making money..

Know what I mean?

Why? I don't drink milk anymore but wasn't it kind of sweet.

Aspartame in milk? What next...rocket fuel? Don't live in the U.S., but another good reason to stick with organically produced, non-factory farm milk or anything else. One has to wonder about what else is in food that they don't tell us about. If it isn't Monsanto trying to wipe out all natural plant life on the entire planet, it is something else.
