a justification for escalating the quantities of waste incinerated.
Incineration, no matter how technically efficient, will increase human exposure to these poisons, but there are simple and safe alternatives, such as waste reduction, recycling, composting and anaerobic digestion.
Dioxins and PCBs are found everywhere. They are fat-soluble and they concentrate up the food chain. For those who wish to limit their exposure, a reduced consumption of fats and animal produce and more plant-based foods will help.
