MELAMINE : A MILK POISSON

Melamine is a chemical compound which have greater Nitrogen content. The chemical compound is used to make plastics,  glassware and Floor tiles.  This is a hard plastic substance which is very harmfull for human and animals also. 
Difference between Pure milk and Adulterated mikk
Milk Adulteration : Differences in pure and impure 

Adulterated Milk

The adulteration can be done in many ways in milk, like mixing water adding extra natural fat or protein  which is proven to be fit for health, but adulteration of chemicals which are not fruitful is quiet dangerous and injurious to health.
Since Melamine is white powder like compound thus  it is  easier to mix it with protein and infant milk formula. Generally the food products are first quality checked and assured by the FOOD SAFETY AND  STANDARD AUTHORITY OF INDIA
It can't easily detected in the laboratory tests and the companies sold them without any fear. 
But the chemical compound can't be easily detected in initial tests. Because the assesments are done to identify the amount of protein on the basis of Nitrogen content and luckily this compound is rich in Nitrogen.  When further tests are done to identify the type of protein then it was found that the Nitrogen is present due to Melamine!

Country's Who Banned it 

In 2008, about 3 lacs children of China fall sick due to milk adulteration initially the government didn't  recognize it after  lot of test they found Melamine a main reason and banned its adulteration in milk and in any other food. 
In USA and many other countries also it is banned.  
But in India  the milk factories are using it in small amounts but it also a great threat to children. 

This adulterated milk is also used to make sweets in India. The chemical compound gives hardness to the sweets which is not naturally present in sweets when compared. 

Health effects of Melamine 

  • Cancer: The compound reacts with organic molecules of the body and activate carcinogenic cells 
  • Kidney Stone: Since the compound is used to make tiles,  plastics thus accumulation in kidneys cause stones. 
So what are your opinions on this,  do you feel that the milk you are consuming is pure and do not have any harmful compound... There are much which will be in next articles if you know any one tell us............
