E-M:/ dioxin



Folks,
 
The Washington Post is reporting that the advisory board for the major EPA dioxin report has urged the report be released quickly.  The Bush administration is saying that they want other departments to review the report first.  The conclusions in the report are not going to be favorable to the Bush-supporting dioxin producers. 
 
EPA Urged to Release Dioxin-Cancer Study (June 2, 2001)

"An expert scientific panel formally urged the Environmental Protection Agency yesterday to release a study that has been in the works for more than a decade and concludes that consumption of animal fat and dairy products containing traces of dioxin can cause cancer in humans."
 
This should have some relevance for construction of the sludge incinerator in Detroit.
