    This product is with a high probability the same that was withdrawn in UK presently. There is a list of batch numbers that are withdrawn. 68 000 test kits in UK only if I remember correctly. And where are they made - In China.

    The problem is that why the stuff is still on our selves.

    And to answer your question. You do not want to know. It is fully drinkable at least in Johannesburg. But to give you some idea. We have stopped buying flocculant for our pool. We fill up the pool using drinking water and wait 2 days. All settled in the bottom.

    Nothing new.

    The accumulation of oestrogen and progesterone and their mimetics in drinking water is well known. Where do you think all the metabolised contraceptive pills etc end up? A lot of plastics and pesticides also act as female sex hormone mimetics.

    Some say because of this drinking tap water full of hormones may influence on a person's sexual orientation.

    It bring new meaning to "Gender fluid" phrase.

    I won’t comment on sexual orientation, but it does influence sexual development...

    I listened to the guy now that did some of the testing... it is indeed a bad batch of test kits.

    Some heavy metals lodge in the brain. The saying "As mad as a hatter" comes from the makers of hats who ingested mercury or perhaps inhaled the fumes.

    Might explain your grumpy days?😈

    So what do we believe here...

    Both the outside of the box of the Clicks test and the information leaflet inside say that the tests are "manufactured by" Humor Diagnostica, a South African supplier of a wide range of tests, including pre-natal and neonatal screenings as well as cancer tests.
    What other packaging and products should we be concerned about... what other dodgy items are on the shelves? Nobody is coming up with any answers!
