Faith-Based Dining. Is it safe?

According to Spocko's Brain, the chickens are coming home to roast -- and those chickens, swine, and fish maybe tainted with melamine, a protein additive derived from coal, and cyanuric acid.

It's not just that melamine was added to wheat and rice gluten and then to pet food -- but melamine was added to wheat flour, and it's safe according to the spin at the FDA. It's a question of how safe is safe enough when you let children enjoy Faith-Based Dining (that's an overview article at Salon). While the experts may denigrate the layman perception of risk, the public knows that facts are
sometimes judgments in drag disguise.

oh yeah...the additives originated in China, who holds a bunch of the bank notes holding up our economy.
