Melamine scandal widens as FDA declares toxic chemical to be safe (plus other news)

NaturalNews Insider Alert ( newsletter

Dear NaturalNews readers,


The big health story right now is the widening melamine scandal now involving U.S. infant formula makers. As revealed in my latest feature article, up to 90 percent of U.S. infant formula products may potentially be contaminated with trace levels of melamine ( under 1ppm.


There are three things you need to understand about this issue: First, after the melamine scandal broke in China and sickened tens of thousands of babies, the FDA assured the American people that U.S. infant formula products were 100% safe and contained no melamine.


They were wrong.


Secondly, when the FDA's own tests discovered melamine contamination in U.S. infant formula products, it actively sought to hide the test results from the public. It only disclosed the test results after being forced to do so by a FOIA petition filed by the Associated Press. (We gotta thank AP for doing this, by the way. Nice job on their part!)


Thirdly, once the melamine contamination results were made public, the FDA abruptly announced that 1ppm (or less) of melamine in infant formula was suddenly "safe." This decision was based on no science whatseover and was obviously a panicked defense of the U.S. infant formula manufacturers whose products are contaminated with melamine.


I suspect we haven't heard the last on this melamine issue. Watch NaturalNews for more breaking news on this issue, and in the mean time, don't feed your babies infant formula made from cow's milk! (I've been recommending the Goat's Milk formulas from )
