    What on earth..?! “Melamine and kids go together indoors or out!” That’s like saying “Phthalates and kids go together indoors or out!”
    Melamine is a derivative of cyanamide, mixed with formaldehyde to produce the resin on dishes. China is still the largest producer of melamine on the market, and has been subject to much criticism and controversy over this toxic additive.
    I understand the resin is not considered harmful, I still rather go with the boring old porcelain or glass.
    This, from wikipedia:
    “Melamine is described as being “Harmful if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Chronic exposure may cause cancer or reproductive damage. Eye, skin and respiratory irritant.” However, the short-term lethal dose is on a par with common table salt with an LD50 of more than 3 grams per kilogram of bodyweight.[14]U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scientists explained that when melamine and cyanuric acid are absorbed into the bloodstream, they concentrate and interact in the urine-filled renal microtubules, then crystallize and form large numbers of round, yellow crystals, which in turn block and damage the renal cells that line the tubes, causing the kidneys to malfunction.”

    Good thing I’m eating just the food on my plate and not the plate itself. Nor am I snorting it.
