However, it is understood that the dioxin
was formed in the Netherlands.
are a group of chemicals formed during combustion processes, such as waste incineration and are known to increase the likelihood of cancer with long term exposure.
The directives for detection of dioxins
require limits of quantification to be 80 percent lower than the lowest reported level in the EPA standards.
We are concerned the tests for dioxins
are only conducted over a six-hour time period, twice a year.
This result suggests that these supplements may help to reduce the maternal transfer of dioxins
, and the reasons may be attributed to the following:
This is the first licensing of XDS dioxin
detection technology to Poland and the third license in the European Union for the North Carolina company.
Field lab workers used to burn old fuel and debris at the site, which is the likely source of dioxins
, a family of toxic chemicals believed to cause cancer.
Since a typical woman uses more than 11,500 tampons in her lifetime, even small traces of dioxin
may add up.
Dr Tanja Pless-Mulloli from Newcastle University tested 98 eggs produced by hens which spent the majority of their time roaming in allotments across the city and found the majority - 74pc - contained higher levels of dioxins
than is permitted under EC regulations for commercially-traded eggs.
In October of 2001, the European Council adopted a new set of regulations limiting dioxins
in food, due to the fact that 95% of dioxin
intake comes from food.
For the general population, there is only "dioxin
," and dioxin
is "bad" if it is present in any amount, even parts per trillion.
In June 1999, the dioxin
crisis, caused by dioxin
-contaminated feed components, exploded in Belgium, resulting in withdrawal of chicken and eggs from the market.
