Melamine – Who Wants It?

World Health Organization Sets Outlandish "Safe" Level for Melamine Consumption

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, December 11, 2008Melamine is an industrial chemical that has sickened hundreds of thousands of children in China and killed babies and pets across the world. It has no place in the food supply. For these health agencies to now claim that a person can "safely" eat 13.6 mg of melamine per day, every day, is simply outrageous. Without any scientific evidence whatsoever, the world's health agencies are essentially endorsing very high levels of melamine in foods. How high? If a 150-pound person eats just one chocolate bar per day, and that chocolate bar is a 50-gram bar that's contaminated with melamine, the WHO would allow an incredible 272 parts per million of melamine in the bar, which is 272 times the allowable level of melamine contamination that has been put forth by the FDA!Neither the WHO nor the FDA has any science whatsoever to back up this "safe" consumption guideline.

Not only that both the WHO and FDA think it's "safe" for babies, children and adults to consume melamine every day, but that these agencies support the daily consumption of multiple untested chemicals in combination.The FDA has declared bisphenol-A to be completely safe and has placed no consumption limit on it whatsoever. There is no limit on acrylamide consumption, either, meaning that a U.S. citizen could be consuming large amounts of melamine, bisphenol-A, acrylamides, phthalates, perchlorates and numerous other chemicals in highly toxic combinations that are all "approved" by the FDA.

History of Melamine

Early in 2008, Chinese hospitals reported an abnormal increase in infant cases of kidney stones. In August 2008, China Sanlu Milk Powder was tested and found to contain melamine.
In September 2008, the New Zealand government asked China to investigate the problem, and by September 21, it was discovered that many food products in Taiwan also tested positive for melamine.

Melamine can form into insoluble melamine cyanurate crystals in renal tubules, kidneys, urethra, urethra or urinary bladder. A child’s kidneys are much smaller than those of an adult, and they consume much larger quantities of milk powder if fed infant formula.
The following symptoms have been observed in infants affected by infant formula laced melamine:

Unexplained fever arising from urinary tract infections
Unexplained crying in infants, especially when urinating, possible vomiting
Small amounts of blood in the urine
Acute obstructive renal failure
Pain on urinating, and passage of stones while urinating
High blood pressure
Pain over the kidneys

Foods originating from China that contain dairy products should be avoided. The companies listed below may carry dairy products from China: Nestle products, Starbucks Coffee, M&M’s, Snickers, Dove soap, Pizza Hut pizza, Coffee Mate and many other products.

The EPA Refuses to Remove Rocket Fuel (Perchlorate) From Drinking Water

Oh My, I Am Drinking Rocket Fuel! printable article, Originally published October 15 2008
by Jo Hartley

The EPA has apparently decided that it is not necessary to remove from our drinking water a toxic rocket fuel ingredient that has been found in public water supplies in the United States. The EPA reached this conclusion in a draft regulatory document that has not yet been released to the public.The ingredient is called perchlorate and has been found in at least 395 sites in 35 states. The levels it is being found at could interfere with thyroid function and might also pose developmental health risks, especially for babies and fetuses, according to some scientists.The EPA has stated that requiring a cleanup to remove perchlorate would not result in a "meaningful opportunity for health risk reduction for persons served by public-water systems."

The Defense Department has utilized perchlorate for years in their testing of missiles and rockets. Most perchlorate contamination comes as a result of defense and aerospace testing activities. The Pentagon could be found liable if only the EPA would set a national drinking water standard that would force water agencies throughout the US to participate in and complete cleanup efforts. Defense officials have spent years questioning the EPA's conclusions about the risks associated with perchlorate. The Pentagon also suggests that they are not the source of as much perchlorate contamination as was once believed. Perchlorate contamination also comes from fireworks, road flares, and fertilizer.They do admit, however, that perchlorate in drinking water presents a certain degree of risk. They also state that they are committed to working with states and scientists to ensure that public health is protected and that important opportunities for reducing these risks are utilized.The EPA expects to seek comment and take any final actions before the end of the year.

Perchlorate is especially widespread in California and other areas of the Southwest. It has been found in groundwater is these areas as well as in the Colorado River. The Colorado River is a drinking-water source for approximately 20 million people. Perchlorate has also been found in lettuce and certain other foods.Because of a lack of federal action, some states have decided to act on their own. California adopted a drinking water standard of 6 parts per billion in 2007. Massachusetts has designated a drinking water standard of 2 parts per billion.

Warning To Women: Do Not Use NuvaRing Contraceptive Device

NuvaRing Contraceptive Device Warning Announced by Morgan & Morgan

Orlando, FL 9/29/2008 01:33 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)
The attorneys of Morgan & Morgan are investigating injuries caused by NuvaRing, a hormonal contraceptive manufactured by Organon. It has been reported that women have suffered blood clots, strokes and other cardiac side effects as a result of NuvaRing use.

NuvaRing is a once-a-month contraceptive that consists of a small plastic ring that is inserted into the vagina and remains there for a three week period. NuvaRing works by releasing hormones that prevent pregnancy. Research suggests the type of hormone released by NuvaRing (desogestral) is especially dangerous to the women who use it. In fact, the consumer advocacy group Public Citizen asked the FDA to ban oral contraceptives that contain forms of desogestral because this dangerous hormone has been implicated in a higher risk of strokes, blood clots and other cardiovascular problems. All hormonal contraceptives carry some risk of cardiac side effects, but since being approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2001, NuvaRing users have reported more such side effects than are usually seen with other hormonal forms of birth control. These NuvaRing side effects include blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, pulmonary embolism and death

Note from Lita Lee: One of my clients just sent me this sad story of the death of a young woman 2 ½- months after using NuvaRing. Christina was full of life, happy, energetic, and loved her husband of 17 years and their 13 year-old daughter.

At the onset of using NuvaRing, she started having headaches. They were not severe so she didn't pay too much attention. Then one morning, she woke up with a severe headache, began vomiting and became lethargic. She was helicoptered to OHSU in Portland and where she was diagnosed with a blood clot in her brain. Once in surgery, surgeons were alarmed to find multiple blood clots throughout her brain. They tried to get to all of them and planned to do another CT Scan the following day to be sure all clots had been addressed. Christina's brain began swelling and her condition became grave. She was placed into a medically induced coma to address the brain swelling and was put on life support. By the next day, her condition worsened and her brain began shutting down. She was taken off life support in a last attempt to address her brain swelling, but efforts were halted as it was determined that her brain had no further activity. Blood clots were found in other organs such as her liver.
