What are Dioxins?dioxin

Dioxins refers to a group of toxic chemical compounds created by either human or natural processes.  According to the EPA, the processes that create dioxins can include burning, bleaching, and smoking – all of which involve combustion.  These compounds are most commonly found in soil and sediment and are less likely to be found in the air or in water.

How are Humans Exposed to Dioxins?

There are a variety of ways humans can be exposed to dioxins.  For example, when individuals eat food grown in soil that is contaminated by dioxins, their health can be harmed.  In addition, when humans consume animals that have ingested dioxins, such individuals can also be harmed.     The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences says once dioxins enter the body, they are found in fatty tissues and can be there for quite some time.

How are Humans Harmed by Dioxins?

The presence of these highly toxic chemicals in the body can lead to skin cancer, skin disease,  reproductive and developmental problems, and damage to the immune system.

Who is at Fault for the Presence of these Chemicals?

When using fields to either grow crops or allow animals to graze, farmers must take steps to ensure that there are not dioxins present in the soil.   If people are harmed because of soil contaminated with dioxins, those who are negligent can be held accountable.  One agricultural company, Monsanto, for example, has claims totaling $685 million filed against them for dioxin contamination.
