Consumption of melamine causes highly insoluble melamine cyanurate crystals to form in the kidney, which damage renal cells and can result in renal failure or death.
Melamine cyanurate has been linked to kidney failure in cats, and I'm not a doctor but those children in China are being hit with kidney stones.
The problem is when melamine is combined with cyanuric acid forming melamine cyanurate, the salt which has been found in Chinese gluten in the past.
