What is Melamine?

The whole world is scared of China made "black hearted goods".In television,newspapers,radio we can take notice of the news that goods from China especially milk and dairy products contains melamine.What is melamine? Melamine is an organic compound that is often combined with formaldehyde to produce melamine resins.So, if we think of formaldehyde it is toxic for us to munch those products.Nowadays, since this issue comes out we should protect ourselves too.Some businessmen do not put "made in china" in the product so that consumer will still patronize their product.How can we protect ourselves?Before, buying dairy products in the grocery we should check the barcode.
