Fake Milk? You've Got to be Kidding Me!

"Milk" by Daniel Hurst
But then again, why am I surprised!? I'm including a link to regarding the information, just so I have all the facts. I think the saddest part of this is that the International Dairy Foods Association feels that adding artificial sweeteners would "benefit school children" who only like to drink sweet beverages. There's that sugar/corn beast rearing its ugly head again, plus the idea that everything can be manipulated, except our own willpower and understanding of the detrimental effects of both sugar and sugar substitutes.

Next week will end the blogging portion of the blog project, and then we'll have book discussions and blog visits, an assessment, and...a taste testing day. I mean, we can't leave the world of food ethics without eating, can we? :)

Other issues you may want to research in the next two weeks:

CHOCOLATE and SLAVERY? When there is no standard for ethical behavior and decision making, anything goes...

80% of Supermarket Items are Spiked With...SUGAR! When is a calorie not a calorie? Protect your health!

Why are STRANGE ITEMS ending up in our food? This seems to be happening on a regular basis. Is it that we are short on inspections? Inspectors? What is behind this decline in safety?

Did you know that more people have a mobile phone than a toilet? Check out interesting water facts here.

A good place to get started on looking into animal treatment ethics is here. Follow the links!

Happy hunting and good eating on this fine St. Patty's Day!
