E-M:/ Dow Chemical's Sound Science

“Moolenaar wants to wait for the results of two studies that seek to determine the level of human health risk caused by dioxin in the soil. A "bio-availability" study would look at the affects of the chemical on animals fed various levels of dioxin-laced soil. And an exposure study, conducted by a University of Michigan research scientist, will involve blood tests of Midland area residents to determine whether they have elevated levels of dioxin.”

Dioxin plan on hold

So Dow Chemical's study is going to determine how much dioxin people should live with in their bodies and the bodies of their children?

Paralysis by Analysis for over 25 years. This is standard operating procedure for Dow. One more generation of kids exposed to one of the most toxic substances known to man. When does it end? When is enough, enough? After 11 peer reviews of the dioxin reassessment, dioxin still remains as toxic as ever and instead of erring on the side of caution for children and public health, legislators err on the side of caution for Dow's profit margin.
