This is fairly long to read but very informative
Make sure you look at the end – very interesting – perhaps a way to tell where things are made….
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 for? It is an industrial chemical
use in the production of melawares.
It is also used in home decoration. ' US resistant board'
Do you understand? Melamine is use in industrial production & it 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 than milk so it lowers capitalization.
It can give the business man more profit!
Below is Melamine; doesn't it look like milk?
It doesn't have any smell, so cannot be detected.
3.When was it discovered$B!)(B
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 Powder 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

A small hole is required in the arm to insert the sub-dialysis catheter.
Why is it more serious in babies$B!)(BBecause the kidney is very small and they drink a lot of milk powder.

It does not matter how much a human being took Melamine. The important point is
'It cannot be EATEN!'
5.What are the foods to be avoided?

Remember: Foods with creamer or milk should be avoided.
6.Which companies are affected?

If you have snack bar, restaurant or coffee shops, stop selling dairy products for the meantime.
If you have infants at home, change to mother's milk or find other substitutes.
Finally, share this information with friends so they will understand the risk of milk poisoning.
The whole world is scared of China made 'black hearted goods'. Can you differentiate which one is made in the USA , Philippines , Taiwan or China ? Let me tell you how... the first 3 digits of the barcode is the country code wherein the product was made.
Sample all barcodes that start with 690.691.692 until 695 are all MADE IN CHINA.
471 is Made in Taiwan
This is our human right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves.
Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products 'made in china', so they don't show from which country it is made.
However, you may now refer to the barcode, remember if the first 3 digits is 690-695 then it is Made in China .
