Milk was in the news twice today! The American Dairy Association has petitioned the FDA to add artificial sweeteners to milk in hopes of increasing consumption. It seems we are not drinking as much milk as we used to, and they think making it sweet will make us want more of it. HMMM. Mayor Blumberg, what do you think about that? And they won't have to list the sweetener on the label!
I can't have whole milk. So it doesn't bother me except in what it might do to change some recipes that are time honored in my kitchen. I can COOK with milk, but I can't drink it. Which brings me to the next story today. It seems that your blood type has something to do with your ability to digest milk. I'm an O. That is the blood type most likely to have issues with milk (headache, abdonimal pain, lethargy, runny nose...endless list). In my case, milk is like drinking a Superball. It bounces right back up!
I'm having a hard time with the addition of sweeteners to milk. What do you think?
