Título How toxic is 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzodioxin to humans?
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1990, Vol.30, No.4, p.261-271. 39 ref.
Resumen This paper discusses the susceptibility of different species to the toxic effects of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD). Tissue level measurements are reviewed and an approach is suggested for comparing body burdens of chemicals in different species. Human exposure levels and adverse health effects following environmental or occupational exposure or accidents are discussed. It is concluded that humans are less or no more susceptible to the toxic effects of TCDD than most of the laboratory animals studied. The present exposure of the general population to environmental levels of TCDD and related compounds should not be of concern.
