Dioxins Water Test
This is a laboratory test for broad analysis of dioxins in drinking water. According to the EPA, dioxins are a likely human carcinogen:
- Dioxins are called persistent organic pollutants (POPs), meaning they take a long time to break down once they are in the environment.
- Dioxins are highly toxic and can cause cancer, reproductive and developmental problems, damage to the immune system, and can interfere with hormones.
- Dioxins are found throughout the world in the environment and they accumulate in the food chain, mainly in the fatty tissue of animals
- More than 90% of human exposure is through food, mainly meat and dairy products, fish and shellfish.
