and it ends with...

Populations potentially at risk, such as infants and pets, should be identified and studied more thoroughly. The primary target organs for many toxicoses are the kidney, as in the examples here, and the liver. Clinicians and pathologists in the veterinary and medical community, in concert with regulatory agencies, could use shared registries of renal and hepatic disease of unknown cause to more effectively identify otherwise unappreciated toxicoses.

A 30 percent increase in chronic kidney disease over the past decade has prompted the U.S. Renal Data System (USRDS) to issue for the first time a separate report documenting the magnitude of the disease, which affects an estimated 27 million Americans and accounts for more than 24 percent of Medicare costs.

Wow, this is a superb article!  Dr. Cathy Brown clearly gets it and its basically what we have been saying all along, they dont know the true effects of these toxins on our pets let alone humans.  I truly hope the veterinarian community starts listening.....thanks Carol for posting this.

Some points from the article:

If this deliberate contamination is motivated by personal financial gain, it is likely to recur and be concealed. (goes back to the money, follow the money)

As recently as 2006, the FDA permitted cyanuric acid in nonprotein nitrogen additives used in animal feed. Cyanuric acid is structurally related to melamine, and its chlorinated derivatives are used as DISINFECTANTS and ALGICIDES (caps mine) in outdoor swimming pools. Someone tell me WHY this is in animal feed?
Containing chlorinated derivatives and pet food with chicken washed with chlorine - does anyone see the cumulative effect here?

Just because they state that this level of a toxin is permitted in this amount in this food and then this amount in that food, another in this ingredient - HOW DO WE KNOW THE TOTAL TOXIC Load in the food we feed our PETS or the food we HUMANS eat? In that can of pet food - what is the total amount added together of permissible levels of this stuff? Sure wish I had the money to give to Don to have tests done that would give the answer to this.

So in a period of a week say, how much toxin(s) does an animal ingest into their system and over a period of time, how much builds up to create the kidney, bladder and other problems our pets have?
