What is Dioxin? The term "dioxin" describes a group of highly toxic chemicals which are produced by several industrial processes that use or burn products containing chlorine, including incinerators and "kraft" paper mills. Dioxins are among the most potent toxic chemicals known.
What are the effects of dioxins on human health? There is compelling scientific evidence that dioxins can cause cancer and disrupt hormonal, reproductive, and immune systems. The developing fetus and breast-feeding infants are particularly sensitive to the harmful effects of dioxins. Recent studies suggest that dioxins are also an "endocrine disrupter" – one of a number of toxic chemicals that interfere with our hormone systems by mimicking natural hormones and blocking or disrupting their normal action.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, there is no safe level of dioxin exposure. Even one drop in an Olympic size pool is enough to kill all life in the pool!!
