Probably not. xP I'm just mad that they won't take it off the shelves. It's like they think we don't know what Youtube is. Also, if they're not talking about it because of the elections, if voters swallow these, and possible cannot vote due to these candies killing/harming them, the election won't be the same, and the past few months with all this media coverage for the election would be a waste.

This so-called 'creepy guy' happens to be Mike Mozart, one of the most influential people in the industry. He has his own website and he's been on TV. He makes tons of money just off the royalties of products he develops on a regular basis. He does patent research, and has the world's largest patent library (he charges 500 bucks an hour to do research for other people). People listen to him, because he knows the field, and he's one of the few that can speak up about these things without fear of persecution by any major companies.

As it is, you can find information on this simply by googling it. It isn't that hard to find.

Isn't that a lovely thought... The FDA as the next FEMA... Now I'm even MORE worried.

But the sad fact is that the FDA DOES KNOW. They just refuse to tell us about it. They knew about it when 50,000 Chinese children got sick from tainted dairy products. But they didn't say anything because of the Olympics, and the media blackout in China helped cover it up (the one people mentioned during the Olympics, you probably saw people talking about it). And now the elections are going on, and they don't want people to know about the possibility because it would affect the vote. This is sick, and it needs to be addressed. And if the FDA doesn't want to say anything (yet they refuse to release ANY DOCUMENTATION TO PROVE IT EITHER WAY), then the people need to make them come clean. Because there's nothing scarier than the thought of having 20,000 to 30,000 American children sick as a result of this.

Not EVERY famous person has to have a Wikipedia entry.

That was a joke, but who mentioned anything about being famous?

Yea, and internet waves can cause cancer.
I'm sick of this over-researched bull we're being force fed. The chances of winning the lottery are about as good as getting poisoned by this.

Here's some tips.

If someone gives you candy and cackles maniacally after you receive it , do not eat.

If there's a used needle sticking out of the candy, do not eat.

If there's two bites missing from your chocolate bar, do not eat.

I'm always amazed that there's people out there who don't check their candy. It's just insane to assume that everyone who you got candy from is completely sane. Yes, they might all be fine people, but you never know.

That's the thing. It could be fine. Oh, and for the record, it isn't just candy. It's anything with milk powder imported from China that could be potentially harmful. I just used the Halloween candy as a reference point. See, the people that don't know what Melamine is are going, 'Yeah, sure. CONSPIIIIIIIRACY!!!!'. But the people that know what it is are the ones that'll look at this topic and do research on the subject. Because they know what it can do to people, let alone children.

In China, they were adding it to BABY FORMULAS (as reported in September)! So if they would stoop to that level, then it stands to reason they would have no problem shipping it off to other countries.
