China Milk Tainted Again Are We at Risk?

In 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration extended its checks for melamine-contaminated food products from Chinato include candy and additional products, a spokeswoman told Reuters. The FDA has expanded its Asian market sampling and import surveillance assignments to include additional products such as dairy-based candies, dairy-based desserts and other such products reported to the agency as having been tested in other countries and found positive for melamine or its analogs, FDA spokeswoman Stephanie Kwisnek told the wire service.Impairments in financial skills and judgment will be the first functional changes demonstrated by patients with incipient dementia often. And breakdowns in economic management skills can be devastating. Patients with MCI typically still are functioning locally with focal memory or other cognitive impairments but are beginning to show initial indicators of functional decline. Since 2000, Marson and his group have published numerous empirical studies detailing impairments of economic skills in individuals with MCI and Alzheimer's disease.
