DIOXIN EMISSIONS FROM BURNING PLASTIC


The most dangerous emissions can be caused by burning plastics containing organochlor-based substances like PVC. When such plastics are burned, harmful quantities of dioxins, a group of highly toxic chemicals are emitted.

Dioxins are the most toxic to the human organisms. They are carcinogenic and a hormone disruptor and persistent, and they accumulate in our body-fat and thus mothers give it directly to their babies via the placenta.

Dioxins also settle on crops and in our waterways where they eventually wind up in our food, accumulate in our bodies and are passed on to our children.

Comment by Lieutenant Frederick Georges on Sunday

Most Firemen are not aware of the dangers created by the chemical changes in "everyday" household supplies such as Styrofoam which when burning releases a deadly toxic vapor similar to inhaling bleach but much stronger. One lung full and you are out of action, and if in a confined space you are DEAD !

Super heated polymers are a number one cause of cancers...
