The Controversial Melamine

This is an information drive or health advisory sent to me via email. No offense to the companies included.

China milk poisoning incidents make everyone afraid to look at the daily news report. Everyday, the reports are changing. No one can clearly tell us what to eat and not to eat.

1.What really is poisoned milk

It is the milk powder mixed with "MELAMINE"

What is Melamine use forIt is an industrial chemical
use in the production of melawares.

It is also used in home decoration.
" US resistant board"

Do you understandMelamine is use in industrial productionit cannot be eaten

2.Why is Melamine added in milk powder

The most important nutrient in milk is protein. And Melamine has the same protein that contains "NITROGEN"

Adding Melamine in milk reduces milk content and it is cheaper then milk so it lowers capitalization.
It can give the business man more profit!

below is Melaminedoesn't it look like milk

it doesn't have any smell, so cannot be detected

3.When was it discovered

Year 2007
US cats and dogs died suddenly, they found that pet food from China contains Melamine.

Starting 2008, In China , an abnormal increase
in infant cases of kidney stones.

August 2008 China Sanlu Milk Po
wder tested
with Melamine

Sept. 2008
 New Zealand gov't ask China to check this problem
Sept. 21, 2008
Lots of food products in Taiwan tested with Melamine

4.What happens when Melamine is digested

Melamine remains inside the kidney. It forms into stones
blocking the tubes. Pain will be eminent and person
cannot urinate. Kidney will then swell.

Although surgery can remove the stones, but it will cause irreversible kidney damage. It can lead to loss of kidney function and will require
kidney dialysis or lead to death because of uremia.

What is dialysis
In fact, it should be called "blood washing"
it is filtering all of the body's blood into the machine
and then go back to the body.

The whole process takes 4 hours and it is necessary to dialysis once for every 3 days for the rest of your life.

Here is a dialysis center

Large dialysis center

A small hole is required i
n the arm to insert the
sub-dialysis cath

Why is it more serious in babies
Because the kidney is very small and they drink a lot of milk powder.

Here is a baby undergoing dialysis.

China currenty has 13,000 infants hospitalized

It does not matter how much a human being took
Melamine. The important point is "It cannot be EATEN!"
