|A great deal has been written and said about
dioxins by scientists, journalists, government officials and others. Chances are the
public debate surrounding these chemical by-products has raised questions in your own mind
about the possible effects of dioxins on human health and the environment.
This document was written and produced to answer
questions commonly asked about dioxins. It is intended to present complex information
about the nature, sources, exposure and human and environmental effects of dioxins as
plainly and succinctly as possible. Since dioxins will continue to engage the interest of
the scientific and public policy communities, Euro Chlor will update this document as new
information becomes available.
