Melamine tableware may leach chemical: study



In a recent study adult participants were asked to eat hot soup out of melamine bowls, a chemical in plastic that was previously associated with fatalities in Chinese infants. The adult participants did not exhibit any adverse effects despite melamine’s presence in their urine.  It is not clear if there are any long term health effects associated with utilization of plastic made with melamine. How much do you know about toxic ingredients present in your cookware?
