The FDA is apparently siding with the Dairy industry to block labels like soy milk on non-dairy products. Can you believe this? What next – what will we have to call mother’s milk?! Slender For Life™ knows the health risks from consuming dairy products and seeks to educate consumers on issues such as calcium and protein. Milk and other animal products including fish and poultry are ultimately contribute to obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease and numerous other health issues. At a time when we are talking about health care reform it is implausible to me that the FDA would take such a stand. The dairy council is a very powerful lobby and as consumers we must stop promoting products that lead to childhood obesity and to 65% of the US population being overweight.

VegSource.com has an interesting and disturbing article by Sherry F. Colb titled:
“Not Milk?”: Dairy Petitions the FDA to Block Labels Like “Soy Milk” on Non-Dairy Products
At the end of April, the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) petitioned the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to stop producers of non-dairy food from using terms such as “milk,” “cheese,” “ice-cream,” “sour cream,” and “yogurt” on their product labels. The NMPF characterizes such labeling as a misappropriation of “traditional dairy terms” and contends that “[f]ood labels should clearly and accurately identify the true nature of the food to the consumer. These companies should not be permitted to represent their products as something they are not.”
The FDA has issued regulations that support the NMPF’s view of words like “milk” and “cheese” and that define such products as essentially dairy in nature. Furthermore, according to the NMPF petition, the FDA has sent warning letters to producers of dairy-free products accusing them of misbranding food by labeling it with words identified with animal ingredients.
The FDA, in other words, appears to agree with the NMPF’s contention that producers of dairy-free products mislead the public by using such words as “milk” and “cheese” in labeling.
