Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Dioxin in the News

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expected to release soon the limits for safe exposure to dioxins, most commonly known as the military herbicide Agent Orange used in Vietnam. According to the Food and Drug Administration most dioxin exposure occurs through the diet, with over 95% coming through dietary intake of animal fats followed by eggs, and then cheese. Dr. Greger explains the health dangers of dioxin and also the implications this has on agribusiness.

Please visit EPA dioxin limit has National Chicken Council worried products could be declared "unfit for human consumption":

Maybe the extent of contamination of animal products with toxins such as dioxin will make people think twice before consuming them and feeding them to their family members, especially children. Healthful eating involves making mindful decisions about what diet we should follow as stewards of our bodies.
