There is a correction to the article.
Aspartame is already allowed in milk and milk products. The dairy industry just wants to be able to remove the labeling requirement that says the milk has aspartame in it. eKatherine is onto something when she enjoyed sweet milk but not plain home milk. My guess is that the dairy industry is losing out to the sweet taste of Coke. They want kids to get addicted to the taste of sweet milk to compete with Coke. Harried mothers, will buy the milk not realizing that the milk has sweetener in it.
I think it's backwards. We need MORE labeling, not less.

5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 115(!) on SAD chocolate, potato chips, and stress. Currently keeping food tracker.
I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
