Following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's setting of a "safe" level of melamine in foods, the World Health Organization (WHO) has announced its own safety level of 0.2 mg per kilogram of body weight per day.
In other words, the WHO says that a 150-pound person could safely consume 13.6 mg of melamine per day.
That's a lot of melamine. It's almost like a nutritional supplement dose. And the scary part about all this is that neither the WHO nor the FDA has any science whatsoever to back up this "safe" consumption guideline.
Melamine 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 inthe food supplywhatsoever. For thesehealth agencies that are supposed to be serving the public to now claim that a person can "safely" eat 13.6 mg ofmelamine per day, every day, is simply outrageous. It is a betrayal of the very public these agencies are supposed to serve and protect.
