‘This is the name of a highly toxic group of chemicals found all over the world—both in nature, and also as byproducts of manufacturing—basically, everywhere!
The active ingredient in ‘Agent Orange’ known as Dioxin is a class of industrial pollutant that can accumulate in the fatty tissues of animals and humans.
90% of our exposure to dioxins is from eating animal products, which is why the EWG recommends limiting consumption of animal products in order to reduce intake.
Dioxins can increase stress hormone levels, hurt your immune system, and they can cause liver damage and skin lesions.
Because these toxins can be found in human breast milk, it’s a good idea to eat a varied diet, to minimize your exposure to any one toxin.’
