    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other organizations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), began assessing the potential risks to human health from exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD, commonly referred to as dioxin) decades studies suggested very high toxicity at very low doses in test animals and potential . and Related Compounds Part III: Integrated Summary and Risk Characterization for 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-Dioxin (TCDD) and Related Compounds NOTICE THIS DOCUMENT IS A PRELIMINARY DRAFT.

    Chlorinated chemicals with comparable structural and biochemical properties, such as certain polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), are called "dioxin-like compounds" and can act similarly in terms of dioxin-type toxicity.. Dioxins are almost insoluble in water but have a very high affinity for lipids (fat). They also tend to associate with organic matter such as ash, soil and plant leaves. and PCDFs can have up to 8. The compounds often have similar toxicity profiles and common mechanisms of action and are generally considered together as a group to set guidelines. 1,4. Sources of exposure to dioxins and dioxin-like substances. 1,4,5. PCDDs and PCDFs are widely present in the environment, occurring naturally and as by-.

    Dioxins and related compounds are environmental xenobiotics that are dangerous to human life, due to the accumulation and persistence in the environment and in the food chain. Cancer, reproductive and developmental issues, and damage to the immune system and endocrine system are only a few examples of the impact of such substances in everyday life.

The thermochemical generation of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and related compounds has received considerable attention during the last few years. Work so far has concentrated on measurement of these types of compounds in effluents from incinerators and other high-temperature processes on the one hand and on experimental pyrolyses.

Advisers to the Nation on Science, Engineering and Medicine. The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare.

Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress inthe. List sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). What are CDDs. CDDs are a family of 75 chemically related compounds commonly known as chlorinated dioxins. One of these compounds is called 2,3,7,8-TCDD. It is one of the most toxic of the CDDs and is the one most studied.

In the pure form, CDDs are crystals or colorless solids. Human exposure to dioxins can be environmental (background), occupational, or accidental pollution.

In the human body, dioxins are in part metabolised. Dioxins have different toxicity depending on the number and position of the chlorine atoms. Because dioxins refer to such a broad class of compounds that vary widely in toxicity, the concept of toxic equivalency factor (TEF) has been developed to facilitate risk assessment and regulatory control.

TEFs exist for seven congeners of dioxins, ten furans and twelve PCBs. Dioxin and dioxin-like compounds (referred to collectively as DLCs) are ubiquitous in the environment (ATSDR, ; Travis and Hattemer-Frey, ). People may be exposed to background levels (i.e., low concentrations) of DLCs by breathing air, by consuming food or beverages, or by their skin coming into contact with DLC-contaminated materials (ATSDR, ).

Dioxins and furans are some of the most toxic chemicals known to science. A draft report released for public comment in September by the US Environmental Protection Agency clearly describes dioxin as a serious public health threat. The public health impact of dioxin may rival the impact that DDT had on public health in the 's.

Dioxins refers to a group of toxic chemical compounds that share certain chemical structures and biological characteristics (see figure 1).

Several hundred of these chemicals exist and are members of three closely related families: Chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (CDDs), Chlorinated dibenzofurans (CDFs) and; Certain polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

CDDs are a family of 75 chemically related compounds commonly known as chlorinated dioxins. One of these compounds is called 2,3,7,8-TCDD.

It is one of the most toxic of the CDDs and is the one most studied. In the pure form, CDDs are crystals or colorless solids. CDDs enter the environment as mixtures containing a number of individual components.
