    Dioxins and dioxin-like compounds (DLCs) are compounds that are highly toxic environmental persistent organic pollutants (POPs). They are mostly by-products of various industrial processes - or, in case of dioxin-like PCBs and PBBs, part of intentionally produced mixtures. They include: Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), or simply dioxins. PCDDs are derivatives of dibenzo-p-dioxin.   Dioxins & Dioxin-Like Compounds. Confidently analyze dioxins, furans and dioxin-like PCBs in food at low levels according to national and international regulations. and there is a need for greater testing capacity in control labs because of the increasingly global nature of the food supply chain and especially when a crisis occurs.

    The exposure portion of the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Dioxin Reassessment has concluded that over 90% of human exposure to dioxin (and related compounds) occurs via food ingestion, primarily meats, dairy products, and fish. Therefore, EPA has undertaken a program to monitor the national food supply for dioxin-like compounds. Dioxins and Dioxin-Like Compounds. Dioxin is a persistent environmental pollutant and potent carcinogen, which is primarily found in food, particularly animal fats, and is linked to a number of diseases including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and skin disorders (Travis and Hattemer-Frey, ; Marinkovic et al., ).

    Every five years, our government measures the amount of dioxins in our food supply. Dioxins are toxic waste pollutants spewed out into the atmosphere that accumulate in the fatty tissues of humans, and food animals consumed by humans. The most significant exposure to dioxin-like compounds is thought to be dietary intake of animal and fish products/5(17).   DIOXINS. FSIS Dioxin Related Activities Page includes links to dioxin resources and historical information. FSIS conducts periodic surveys to gather information on dioxins, furans, and dioxin-like PCBs in U.S. meat and poultry products as part of a continuing effort to understand and characterize potential contaminants in the food supply.

Dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, or DLCs, are found throughout the environment, in soil, water, and air. People are exposed to these unintentional environmental contaminants primarily through the food supply, although at low levels, particularly by eating animal fat in meat, dairy products, and fish.

Dioxins and related compounds, including dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (referred to collectively as DLCs), accumulate, through the food chain, into the lipid component of animal foods. However, levels of dioxins in the environment, and thus exposures to humans, have been declining since the late s.

Dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, or DLCs, are found throughout the environment: in soil, water sediments, and air. Exposure to these unintentional contaminants occurs largely through the food supply, although at low levels.

Dioxin and PCB levels in the food supply are generally decreasing, but high levels persist in some regions due to legacy contamination from industrial activity, the consequences of wartime use of defoliants, global cycling to the northern polar regions and isolated food contamination : Martin Rose.

Long term high levels of exposure to dioxins have the potential to cause a range of toxic effects in animals and humans, including skin lesions, reproductive disorders and cancer.
