- What It’s Used In: Mostly Found In Animals
- Problems Caused: Cancer, Problems With Reproductive Health, Killing Immune System
We come across Dioxin all the time, whether we want to or not. Usually, it is not too harmful as it’s found in the fatty tissue of animals. When we’re exposed to dioxin, it’s almost always through meat or dairy products. Yet fish also have it within them, making dioxin incredibly common. However, it has also been used in other areas. We now know that it is a highly toxic chemical that can kill people. It screws with our reproductive systems, overall human development, our immune system. One study was done on prisoners by Dr. Albert M. Kligman using dioxin, the main ingredient in Agent Orange, getting them incredibly sick.
