1. Join the fight to stop the permitting of incinerators, including
those than burn medical waste and garbage; and close down permitted
2. Join the fight to phase out PVC plastic. Without PVC and chlorinated
solvents, such as chlorinated pesticides, dioxin would likely not be
manufactured in the first place. Chlorinated vinyl plastics, I've been
told, are the single largest use of chlorine.
3. Join the fight to stop the pulp and paper mills from using
organochlorines to bleach paper white. Soils and waters downstream from
such mills are tainted with dioxins and other organochlorines.
4. It's not just cattle, all animals, all mammals including the
developing human fetus, have dioxin in their bodies. WE MUST STOP THIS
INSANITY IF THE RIGHT TO LIFE REALLY MATTERS.
