People are still exposed to low-dose melamine in daily-life environment, even after 2008 toxic milk food scandal. Our previous study has found that chronic low-dose melamine exposure is associated with the risk of renal stones in adults, but the data about the relationship between environmental melamine exposure and the risk of renal damage in humans is still lacking. In this talk, I will present our recent findings about that link from different susceptible populations and propose the mechanisms behind that.
