        Dioxin is the chemical industry's most unpleasant byproduct, an extraordinarily potent poison that lingers for years at sites where it was created or dumped. Newly detected dioxin deposits vex. "Dioxins" refers to a group of chlorinated organic chemicals with similar chemical structures. Some have harmful properties, depending on the number and position of chlorine atoms in their chemical structure. One of the most harmful dioxins is known as PCBs, which have similar properties, are considered "dioxin-like".

      Dioxin is a highly toxic and persistent substance that is the unintentional by-product of medical waste incineration and PVC plastic production. Other sources of dioxin include paper and pulp mills, municipal incinerators, cement kilns that burn chemical waste, and the manufacturing of . Dioxin and dioxin-like compounds (referred to collectively as DLCs) are ubiquitous in the environment (ATSDR, ; Travis and Hattemer-Frey, ). People may be exposed to background levels (i.e., low concentrations) of DLCs by breathing air, by consuming food or beverages, or by their skin coming into contact with DLC-contaminated materials (ATSDR, ).

      'The launch of the Dioxin Analyzer and the DFS Software Package for the DFS Magnetic Sector GC-HRMS demonstrates our continued commitment to help customers protect the integrity of the global food chain by providing access to advanced, analytical solutions that meets their individual requirements for the accurate quantification of dioxins and other POPs within any food or feed sample matrix.'. dioxin, 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), which is assigned a TEF of 1 (Van den Berg et al., ). Some of the less potent dioxin-like PCBs have TEF values.

Dioxin story are called persistent organic pollutants (POPs), meaning they take a long time to break down once they are in the environment. Dioxins are highly toxic and can cause cancer, reproductive and developmental problems, damage to the immune system, and can interfere with hormones.

Veterans and Agent Orange: Herbicide/Dioxin Exposure and Type 2 Diabetes reviews the scientific evidence regarding the association, if any, between Type 2 diabetes1 and exposure to dioxin2 and other chemical compounds in herbicides used in Vietnam. This report examines, to the extent that available data permitted meaningful determinations, (1.

MECHANISMS AND MODE OF DIOXIN ACTION Mechanistic studies can reveal the biochemical pathways and types of biological and molecular events that contribute to dioxin’s adverse effects (See Part II, Chapter 2, for a detailed discussion).

Olson is a US Army Vietnam Era veteran and professor emeritus of soil science in the Department of Natural Resources. Dioxins and dioxin-like compounds (DLCs) are a group of chemical compounds that are persistent environmental pollutants (POPs).

Some of them are highly toxic, but the toxicity among them varfold. They are grouped together, because their mechanism of action is the same. Dioxin: Dioxin Timeline EPA'S Dioxin Assessment: No Safety Standard After Nearly Three Decades of Work Scientists first learned of dioxin's toxicity since the late 19th century, when German chemical industry workers exposed to it developed painful, oozing skin lesions known as chloracne.

Dioxin (2,3,7,8-TCDD). Fabio Pichierri. Tohoku University. Sendai, Japan. Molecule of the Month, September Introduction.

The industrial contaminant dioxin--one of the most common pollutants known--may pack a far greater carcinogenic punch than anyone knew. A by-product of factory combustion, pulp- and papermaking and backyard trash burning, dioxin accumulates in the fatty tissue of animals and fish and is passed to humans when they consume meat and dairy foods.
