Help ban aspartame from infants and childrens antibiotics!

Outraged after noticing that an antibiotic prescription for my daughter's ear infection contained the extremely dangerous and harmful artificial sweetener aspartame, I felt a strong urge to do something about it. I will personally campaign to get enough names to submit these pharmaceutical companies to quit poisoning small children!

Link to my petition (in Finnish):

Please sign this important petition and spread the word! We as parents and as concerned citizens need to fight for the rights and future health of our children. There is NO reason to allow our children to be guinea pigs until we know just how harmful aspartame is. As long as there is ANY doubt about the safety of aspartame, it is NOT worth the risk.

I would greatly appreciate if fellow bloggers could post the link as well. In order for us to make a difference, we need visibility.

Thank you very much, Yaelian for supporting this cause. It is certainly one which I am willing to fight for. Maybe you could even post the link in your blog so that we can get more visibility?

Agny, I know. They just shove it everywhere. I just wish there was a way of informing all parents and convincing them to avoid aspartame altogether! Some are just incredibly naive and believe that it has to be OK because the government allows it. It's impossible to know yet how many people this petition will reach, but as far as I am concerned every child who is spared from aspartame because of this is a huge victory.
