Money Above Health – The Dairy Lobby

Can you believe that the dairy industry wants to change the definition of “milk”? Specifically, the International Dairy Foods Association and the National Milk Producers Federation have petitioned the FDA to include non-nutritive sweeteners, such as aspartame, in the definition of “milk” so that it does not have to be labeled. This would affect reduced-calorie dairy options. So, you could be inadvertently exposing yourself and your children to dangerous chemicals when you think you are doing something healthy. Not OK! Please use the link to the right to find local dairy farms in your area! That way, you can know for sure what you are giving to your family. My family gets our milk from Apple Valley Creamery in East Berlin, PA. Every Friday, our milk gets delivered in glass bottles and it is delicious! It is also no more expensive than buying the organic brands in the store. Plus, we get to support a local family!
