Cyromazine Pesticide breaks down into Melamine - allowed by EPA

So, let's just starve rather than eating our daily dose of poison....

Hi,
Novartis makes an insecticide called "cyromazine" and the metabolite of cyromazine is melamine -when the insecticide comes in contact with urea in an animal's (or humans) body it chemically transforms into melamine. You all should know this insecticide is used on cattle feed lots, dairy operations, poultry operations, etc. for controlling flys. It is put directly into the animal feed. It is used in the United States.

Syngenta makes a crop insecticide cryromazine, to control certain larvae harmful to their (genetically engineered?) crops. It is used in the United States. It is used in tomatoes, sweet corn, onions, leafy green veggies, potatoes, etc. Cyromazine targets the nervous system of the pest insects.

A concerned citizen approached the EPA about the dangers of cyromazine, because it showed kidney problems/kidney stones and crystallization in the kidneys in laboratory animals:
"I suggest that although short-term studies have been carried out on cyromazine, the long-term implications have not been addressed in this petition. Allowing increased levels of cyromazine in foods loved by children, e.g., milk, mangoes and sweet corn without long-term studies of the effects of this toxin is tantamount to negligence."

The EPA responded (back in 1999/2000):
"Based on the risk assessments discussed in the proposed rule and the findings made therein, the Agency concludes that there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result to the U.S. population and to infants and children from aggregate exposure to residues of cyromazine. Therefore,
tolerances are established..."

So we have melamine in our food supply here in the United States, via the insecticide cyromazine. Let's not just put all the blame on China and let's investigate the EPA and the FDA, and Novartis and Syngenta, because our own children here in the U.S. are beginning to develop kidney stones at an alarming rate.

DDT was also an insecticide.


http://www.epa.gov/EPA-PEST/1999/September/Day-15/p24047.htm
Cyromazine; Pesticide Tolerance
SUMMARY: EPA proposes to establish tolerances for residues of cyromazine (CAS No. 66215-27-8) in or on
 mango at 0.3 parts per million (ppm);
 onion, green at 2.0 ppm;
 onion, dry bulb at 0.1 ppm;
 potato at 0.8 ppm;
 corn, sweet, (kernels plus cob with husks removed) at 0.5 ppm;
 corn, sweet, forage at 0.5 ppm;
 corn, sweet, stover at 0.5 ppm; radish,  roots at 0.5 ppm; radish, tops at 0.5 ppm;
 lima beans at 1.0 ppm;
 cotton, undelinted seed at 0.1 ppm;
 milk at 0.05 ppm;
and meat, fat and meat byproducts (of cattle, goats, hogs, horses and sheep) at 0.05 ppm.

EPA also proposes to remove melamine, a metabolite of cyromazine from
the tolerance expression since it is no longer considered a residue of
concern.

The Interregional Research Project (IR-4) and Novartis Crop
Protection, Inc., requested these tolerances under the Federal Food,
Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act
of 1996.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyromazine

Cyromazine is a triazine insect growth regulator used as an insecticide and an acaricide. It is a cyclopropyl derivative of melamine. Cyromazine works by affecting the nervous system of the immature larval stages of certain insects.[2]

In veterinary medicine, cyromazine is used as a ectoparasiticide.

  We are toast.  Melamine is going to show up in our meats, vegetables, milk, etc.  Add the scientists to the rat bastard list.

Melamine-contaminated meat found safe for consumption - 2007

I'm assuming now that the melamine is coming from the Cyromazine.... They say the feed is "contaminated" but that's not the whole story is it?

Melamine-contaminated meat found safe for consumption

Meat from swine exposed to melamine has been found safe for human consumption, prompting the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to allow swine held on farms to be released and approved for processing.

According to testing conducted by the regulatory agency, melamine ingested through contaminated feed does not accumulate in pork and is filtered out of the body by the action of the kidneys.

The agencies' original risk assessment assumed that testing could detect levels of melamine and related compounds as low as 10 parts per billion (ppb) in pork. The new assessment assumes that testing can detect levels only as low as 50 ppb in pork, "a more conservative assumption", and an even higher level of 100 ppb is assumed in order to account for the potential presence of cyanuric acid, in addition to melamine.

I cannot believe that people must have been experimenting for God knows how long just to find the right poisonous compound that breaks down into another deadly poisonous compound that they know we will ingest.  Death laboratories.  Completely insane.

With this low level poisoning, you need to think about the health effects of lifetime exposures.

It's truly frightening for anyone or there family hoping to live a long and healthy life.

And how would anyone sue and prove in a court that 20+ years of exposure to this caused your kidneys to fail? Would the company even be in business 20 years from now?

Thanks for this info.  Being a vegetarian with a garden is comforting right now.

connecting the dots...Daniel Vasella - Novartis - Bilderburg  - Cyromazine - Melamine

Bilderberg 2009 Attendee List - Daniel Vasella Biography
http://www.notablebiographies.com/newsmakers2/2005-Pu-Z/Vasella-Daniel.html
Chief Executive Officer of Novartis


Quote
At first, success was slow to come. Novartis' sales increased only slightly in 1998 and 1999. Vasella invested in life sciences with the idea that new biotechnology would link the drug business with agricultural and nutritional products. But the life sciences market floundered. Vasella realized it and abandoned his goal. Novartis sold off its agricultural arm in 2000. [Syngenta?]

http://www.faqs.org/abstracts/Chemicals-plastics-and-rubber-industries/Zeneca-+-Novartis-=-Syngenta-Novartis-sells-Flint.html

The crop protection chemicals industry experienced a wave of mergers and acquisitions throughout 1999 with major players Novartis and Zeneca Ag Products capping the year with the announcement of a proposed merger. The new entity resulting from the Novartis-Zeneca merger will be called Syngenta, which reportedly will be the first international company dedicated to agribusiness. Syngenta will be a titan in the industry as Zeneca's and Novartis' combined sales totalled $7.9 billion in 1998

Here, for your troubles and to sooth your mind.

By the way, a certain food production associated company located in Seattle had to replace an entire door frame to their offices because someone glued the entire thing shut over the weekend.

That means that it turns into melamine in your kidneys.

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 toxic dose is on a par with common table salt with an LD50 of more than 3 grams per kilogram of bodyweight.[12] 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
