During this past fall, a bill was defeated in California that would require GMO labelling on foods. This would help consumers to really know the nutritional and engineered components in their food supply. Unfortunately, this bill was defeated as a result of pressure from the Monsanto and large agribusinesses. My question is this, “If they are so confident in the inability of these modifications to cause harm to the human body, why are they so afraid to label their products for what they are?”
The other element that most consumers are not aware of is the non-labelling of certain additives to foods. If a chemical is below an acceptable percentage of the overall net weight of a food or is considered to be an industry standard, it is not required to be disclosed on the product label. For example, this holds true for the food grade antifreeze that is put into almost every commercial grade ice cream.
Aspartame is already a listed ingredient on the labels of yogurt, some milks, eggnog, whipping cream, and other dairy products. The Dairy Industry is now petitioning the FDA to remove the requirement for them to have to actually put this information on the product labels. I find this to be absolutely incredible as Aspartame as already been identified as a potentially dangerous excitotoxin on the neurological system of humans. For those that want more information on the dangers of Aspartame and other excitotoxins, I encourage you to check out Russell Blalock’s book Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kill.
For more information on this move by the Dairy Industry to further adulterate milk and other dairy products, I encourage you to read Natural News’ article, U.S. dairy industry petitions FDA to approve aspartame as hidden, unlabeled additive in milk, yogurt, eggnog and cream.
