Cows eat the grass and the dioxin
gets concentrated in the fat in their meat and milk.
The report submitted to the Scientific Committee of the International Whaling Commission said researchers headed by Koichi Haraguchi, associate professor at Daiichi University, College of Pharmaceutical Sciences in Fukuoka, detected dioxins
up to 172 times over the tolerable daily intake (TDI) in marketed whale and dolphin meat.
Fatter people don't release fat-soluble compounds like dioxin
nearly as quickly as thinner people, notes Michael Gough, a biologist who was chairman of a federal advisory panel for the Ranch Hand study from 1990 to 1995.
is the name for a family of chlorinated hydrocarbons that are a toxic byproduct of some metal-refining methods, pesticide manufacturing, and the chlorinated bleaching of pulp and paper.
If the guidelines receive final approval, federal and state officials will examine sites with known dioxin
contamination to identify those needing work and what the work will cost.
These farms have not been able sell their eggs for over a week as a result of the dioxin
By identifying foods that do not contain dioxins
, the number of samples that must be analyzed using HRGC/HRMS is reduced, significantly lowering the cost for laboratories to conduct these analyses.

levels, as well as a number of other factors, were measured in each mother's and newborn's blood and in the mother's breast milk at birth.
32 nanograms of dioxin
to every cubic metre of air], which is more than three times over the legal limit of 0.
The most common symptom of exposure to high levels of dioxin
is the condition known as chloroacne in which the victim experiences severe eruptions of ache, usually on the head and face.
pyrenoidosa reduces lipid-containing quantities of breast milk, thereby decreasing dioxin
