GLIN==> Univ of Michigan Dioxin Study around Dow-Midland



Higher dioxin levels found in people near Dow plant

Residents near the Dow Chemical Co. plant in Midland have more dioxin in their blood than those of a comparable area farther away, according to a University of Michigan report released Tuesday.

But pollution from the plant is just one reason for the discrepancy and a minor factor among many that determined the dioxin levels in people examined, the report said. [SNIP]
