Needless Deaths and Suffering of Chinese Babies from Melanine in ‘Infant Formula’

When will women learn that there’s no substitute for breastfeeding? Everyone needs to understand that if you want the best for for your infants, just breastfeed!

In the past few years there have been 70-odd recalls of the so-called ‘infant formula’ (in reality a risky mix of chemicals without immunological protective factors).  There is now an epidemic of kidney stones and deaths in Chinese infants due to what is believed to be excessive amounts of melanin added to milk to allegedly increase protein content of milk.

The FDA says 2.5 ppm is the most that can be safely tolerated by humans. Is this also the case for infants and why do they need melanin at all?  It is outrageous that the melamine levels found recently in Chinese dairy products were astronomically high — as much as 2,500 ppm.  Why it had to be added in the first place is worrying and why the FDA cant just say it should not be added at all is not clear.  Melanin is not an essential nutrient for infants and is clearly harmful.

If you know anything further on the issue, do comment.

Ways to Reduce Intake of BPA

  1. Buy your tomato sauce in glass jars. Canned tomato sauce is likely to have higher levels of BPA because the high acidity of the tomatoes causes more of the chemical to leach from the lining of the can. Think beyond plain tomato sauce to any canned pasta—like ravioli and those fun-looking kids’ meals.
  2. Consume frozen or fresh fruits and vegetables instead of canned. In addition to their BPA-free benefit, fresh and frozen produce usually have more nutrients, which often get lost in the process of canning. Eden Foods does offer canned beans that are BPA-free.
  3. Purchase beverages in plastic or glass bottles. Canned soda and juice often contain some BPA. You don’t need to worry, though, about disposable plastic water bottles. Most don’t contain bisphenol A, and those that do are usually marked on the bottom with a number 7 recycling code.
  4. Use powdered infant formula instead of ready-to-serve liquid. A separate assessment from the Environmental Working Group found that liquid formulas contain more BPA than powdered brands.
  5. Think in terms of moderation. You don’t need to avoid all canned foods. Just consult the chart below and follow a sensible approach, eating less of those foods that are high in BPA. Click here for the full report on canned foods.


I agree with the above suggestions, except for step 4: just use breastmilk!
