How Much Melamine Is In Our Food?

Do you see a link ...

Between this:
Chinese Destroy Tons of Tainted Feed, New York Times, November 2, 2008
"Chinese regulators said over the weekend that they had confiscated and destroyed more than 3,600 tons of animal feed tainted with melamine."
When consumed in small amounts, melamine causes kidney stones (or crystals). When consumed in larger amounts, it results in kidney failure.

And this:
A New York Times story from last week reported:
A Rise in Kidney Stones Is Seen in U.S. Children

Parting thought (from top story):
"China is ... one of the biggest food exporters in the world."
