Dioxin, dioxin everywhere

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


There is widespread fear that exposure to even small amounts of dioxin could lead to serious adverse health effects. EPA has for some years been assessing the nature and extent of the dioxin problem in the United States. It is the article's thesis that the agency has failed in this task and that the dioxin problem is much broader in scope than the public has been led to believe. Subjects covered include sources of environmental input, human exposure, EPA regulation, and others.
