throw your hands in the air / like you just don't care

so, there is now news that brand name baby formula in the u.s. has trace amounts of melamine and another similar compound. melamine is dangerous, because it collects in the kidneys and forms crystals that lead to kidney stones or even kidney failure. this is so utterly outrageous.

if melamine is in america's baby formula than imagine all the other foods it is in. i read a report in the new york times not long ago, about the exponential rise in kidney stones in children. the report said that this rise was probably due to so much salt in the diet of modern kids, but i wonder if maybe it has more to do with melamine in their diets.

you know, it is ridiculous that there are higher security standards on dvds than on baby formula.
