(NaturalNews) This Halloween, children across the United States may be poisoned with toxic melamine, a potentially deadly chemical that causes severe kidney damage, liver damage and even death. This chemical is found in chocolates and candy products made in China, which is now embroiled in a global melamine scandal involving eggs, animal feed, candies, infant formula, milk products and much more.

The United States Food and Drug Administration has taken its usual "head in the sand" approach to melamine, declaring all U.S. chocolates and candies to be completely safe, even though it has no evidence whatsoever to back up that position. Then again, poisoning the U.S. public is business as usual at the FDA, where toxic pharmaceuticals, toxic personal care products and dangerous food additives are routinely allowed to be purchased and used by consumers, with absolutely no regard for public safety. (Aspartame remains approved by the FDA, for example. 'Nuff said.)

Watch this video by Mike Mozart of JeepersMedia to learn the truth about Halloween candy that the FDA won't dare make public: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUB79WJ9ktQ

Action Item: Download this one-page warning letter and tape it to your front door: http://www.naturalnews.com/downloads/Candy-W...

If you're reading this on or before Halloween, please post this warning letter on your front door to warn other parents and families about the toxic melamine contamination that may be present in the Halloween candy.

Even though low doses of melamine are not immediately fatal, they harm the body and can lead to days, weeks or months of suppressed kidney function and liver function. If enough melamine is consumed over a period of a few days (for example, in the three days after Halloween), children may experience liver failure, kidney failure or even death.

Toxic Halloween candy

Most Halloween candy is toxic even without the melamine, due to the use of refined sugars (high-fructose corn syrup), artificial coloring additives (which cause ADHD) and other chemical ingredients. But today, the melamine contamination issue raises the potential toxicity of Halloween candy to a whole new level. Now, melamine-contaminated candy can kill a child in days if enough is consumed.

The FDA will not protect your children from melamine. Do NOT rely on health authorities to tell the truth about this issue.

As children seem to ravenously consume Halloween candy in the days following Halloween, parents should be extremely cautious and either 1) Throw out all Halloween candy, or 2) If such candy is allowed to be consumed, closely monitor your children for signs of kidney failure or liver failure.

Symptoms of melamine poisoning include:

• Excessive thirst and water intake
• Vomiting and lack of appetite
• Frequent urination

If you observe such signs in your children, immediately take them to the Emergency Room of your local hospital and, if possible, bring samples of the candy your children have consumed. And then, while you're at the emergency room, hit yourself over the head with a hammer to remind yourself what a complete idiot you were to let your children eat Halloween candy in the first place.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose descendents include Africans and American Indians. He self-identifies as being of American Indian heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
