Fonterra is running scared because DCD has not been tested in any country. So if it hasn't been tested how can Fonterra come out and say it is safe. In the onset DDT and Thalidomide were proclaimed safe because the developers wanted money. Fonterra is just another big business out to make a profit.
Secondly, the Greens have started playing the game of demanding it be taken off the market and blaming Fonterra. Truth is, The Greens are just as guilty, if not more guilty, because they are the one who pushed its use to begin with to save the waterways. Well, they might have saved the waterways, but what have they done to the children drinking untested contaminents?

Your are right Hazel, there are other unanswered questions to like. What are the levels of DCD in the milk per liter. Does dicyandiamide (DCD) accumulate in the body if so what rate does our bodys get rid of it?

The lack of international regulation for acceptable levels of DCD gives way for ambiguous commentary and allows Fonterra to hide behind legislation. I wonder how much a toddler would need to drink to feel the effects?. As with any substance/chemical, not everyone has the same tolerance levels.Throw away comments about "drinking a swimming pool of the stuff" doesn't provide public confidence.
