".. to balance the statistics of demand and supply"

demand for profit, that is..

The more things change the more they stay the same..


Yes, most people aren't aware that aspartame is a common ingredient in skim milk. There is some law that says if an ingredient is added in small enough quantities by virtually every supplier, it doesn't have to be listed on the list of ingredients.

I get bad migraines from aspartame...


Mmmm.. Frothy snail milk...


Tracey: try some poppy heads, nightshade and stramonium for your migraines... 8 out of 10 confederate doctors recommend it.


Tracey, I think you are mistaken. Phenylalanine, a component of aspartame, is naturally found in many foods, including milk, but I don't believe that manufacturers are adding it without listing it on the label. There is, after all, a law that manufacturers warn people who cannot handle phenylalanine that an item contains aspartame...the warning reads "Phenylketonurics: Contains phenylalanine." Check out a can of Diet Coke.

This smells like an urban myth.
