Your question could fill volumes.  Try looking at the following web 
sites.  Remember that everyone working on dioxin has an agenda or at least 
a slant on the problem.  Also, dioxin in not a chemical.  It is a class of 
chemicals.  When the name is misused as you have, it refers to a 
particular isomer that you will read about.

and go to and do a search for the info you need.  Just dioxin 
gives >5000 hits.
