There was essentially no dioxin present on earth until
the '30s, when
the mass production of organochlorines began.
The idea that dioxin is part of our natural world was
infamous and disreputed Dow study, "Trace Chemistries
published in 1979. It was proven fallacious by studies
sediments (Czuczwa, 1984, 1985, 1986) showing that
not appear in any but trivial quantities before 1940
However, when the Dow study fell into disrepute, we as
ignored one important gem (obsidian - the death gem)
from the study: it fortold the massive dioxin
contamination of the planet
that was to come of MUNICIPAL WASTE INCINERATION of
organochlorine household products!
Yes, Dr. Bill, we appreciate all the hard work done by
the scientific teams
from the Chlorine Chemical Council. We now read
everything you publish
from cover to cover, throw away what we think might be
in the corporate interest, and use what we think is
probably good science
to find ways to eliminate organochlorine production
I really do wish the members of that organization
would consider switching
to non-chlorine alternatives, and start calling
themselves the OCC, the
Oxygen Chemical Council. We'd have a healthier

At the risk of having you attempt to set me straight,
I will point out only
one recent error.
It is patently not true that burning wood <<produces
only the dioxin from
herbicide residue combustion>>.
Please check the postings on this list in the last
month or so for at least
two or three references to dioxin generation from
cellulose and salt,
including trees soaked in salt water vs. the same
trees not receiving that
treatment. Also, see Valerie Thomas' article re
combustion of petroleum,
coal, cellulose, unleaded gas and so on.
I don't want to inconvenience the list with a long
statements, however, play too fast and too loose with
