The first U.S. nationwide food sampling with measurement of dioxins, dibenzofurans, and coplanar, mono-ortho and di-ortho polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) is reported in this study. Twelve separate analyses were conducted on 110 food samples divided into pooled lots by category. The samples were purchased in 1995 in supermarkets in Atlanta, GA, Binghamton, NY, Chicago, IL, Louisville, KY, and San Diego, CA. Human milk also was collected to estimate nursing infants' consumption. The food… Expand
DIOXINS IN COMMERCIAL UNITED STATES BABY FOOD
TLDR
Although dioxin levels are generally lower in these baby foods than in meat or poultry, the presence of dioxins in commercial baby food containing meat is cause for concern. Expand
Levels of polychlorinated biphenyls in foods from Catalonia, Spain: estimated dietary intake.
TLDR
The data obtained in this study should be useful in risk assessment with regard to human PCB exposure through food in Catalonia. Expand
Human exposure to dioxins through diet in Italy.
TLDR
The results are in agreement with what observed in studies conducted in other countries, such as Germany, Finland, Japan, Spain, and are below the limits set by the European legislation. Expand
Exposure to dioxin-like pollutants via different food commodities in Swedish children and young adults.

TLDR
Results obtained from the present study show that it is essential to perform age specific dietary intake assessments of pollutants and more carefully consider sensitive and/or highly exposed groups in the population in the risk management processes. Expand
Human exposure to dioxins through the diet in Catalonia, Spain: carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic risk.
TLDR
The main objectives of this study were to determine which food groups showed the greatest contribution to this intake of dioxins, and to assess the health risks potentially associated with the dietary dioxin intake. Expand
Intake and body burden of dioxin-like compounds in Germany: the INES study.
TLDR
d-PCB exposure in adults consuming a normal mixed diet is quite low at present in Germany, and the median and maximum daily intake contributed to 10% and 25% to the tolerable daily intake recommended for total PCDD/Fs and dl-PCBs. Expand
Dioxins, furans and dioxin-like PCBs: Occurrence in food and dietary intake in France
TLDR
A life-long intake estimate showed that a non-negligible part of the French population (between 20 and 28%) had an intake above the tolerable monthly intake for dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs of 70 pg WHO-TEQ kg−1 b.w. month−1. Expand
Infant dietary exposure to dioxins and dioxin-like compounds in Greece.
TLDR
The risks of this exposure should not be overestimated because nursing is restricted to a limited period of human life and besides, the potential consumption of higher levels of dioxin-like compounds is fully compensated by the significant benefits of breast-feeding. Expand
Dietary intake of dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs, due to the consumption of dairy products, fish/seafood and meat from Ismailia city, Egypt.
TLDR
The cereals and vegetables/fruits contribute significantly to PCDD/Fs TEQ intake in Egypt and play a more important role than fish/seafood and meat and the total intake is close to that reported in EU countries at the beginning of 1980s, but much higher than the maximum WHO TDI. Expand
PCDD/Fs and dioxin-like PCBs in home-produced eggs from Belgium: levels, contamination sources and health risks.
TLDR
This study showed that current soil levels found in some private gardens do not lead to egg levels below the current EU maximal level of 6 pg total TEQ/g fat for dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs. Expand

Congener-specific levels of dioxins and dibenzofurans in U.S. food and estimated daily dioxin toxic equivalent intake.
TLDR
Congener-specific dioxin analyses for the first time on U.S. food for 18 dairy meat, fish, and fish samples from a supermarket in upstate New York were performed to estimate intake of these highly toxic compounds. Expand
Dioxins, dibenzofurans, dioxin-like PCBs, and DDE in U.S. fast food, 1995.
TLDR
Data is presented on the closely related dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and the persistent metabolite of DDT, 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis (p-chlorophenyl) ethylene (DDE), in four types of popular U.S. fast food. Expand
Dietary intake of PCDD and PCDF from food in Ontario, Canada
Abstract Due to public concern about polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDF) in the food supply, the Ontario government analysed 25 composite samples fromExpand
Health hazard assessment of chlorinated dioxins and dibenzofurans contained in human milk
TLDR
Analysis of data from northern Vietnam indicate that nursing infants here are exposed to amounts of TCDD equivalents that are below employed standards, but interpretation of these numbers varies considerably depending on whether the standard from the EPA or CDC is chosen; the latter value for allowable intake being approximately 100-fold higher than the former.

Belgium has a problem: Dioxin-tainted food
Belgium is facing what may well be one of the most expensive cases of tainted food ever. It has been forced to remove from the market and destroy huge amounts of polychlorinated biphenylandExpand
Polychlorinated biphenyl levels in the tissues of exposed and nonexposed humans.
TLDR
The usefulness of PCB blood determinations following potential exposure is demonstrated, and their application in health studies is illustrated from a number of case studies. Expand
Dioxins and dioxin-like chemicals in blood and semen of American Vietnam veterans from the state of Michigan.
TLDR
Elevated blood TCDD levels, probably related to Agent Orange exposure, can be detected between two and three decades after potential exposure in some American veterans, suggesting a possible mechanism for male-mediated adverse reproductive outcomes following Agent Orange or other dioxin exposure.

Levels of polychlorinated dibenzofurans, dibenzodioxins, PCBS, DDT and DDE, hexachlorobenzene, dieldrin, hexachlorocyclohexanes and oxychlordane in human breast milk from the United States, Thailand, Vietnam, and Germany
TLDR
Chlorinated dioxins and dibenzofurans have been reported in breast milk specimens from a number of countries in recent years and higher levels of PCDD/Fs are found in industrial areas than in non industrial areas. Expand
Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins, polychlorinated dibenzofurans, and coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls in breast milk from two cities in Ukraine.
TLDR
Levels of these compounds seen in Ukraine were similar to or lower than those seen in other recent studies from European and Asian countries. Expand
Toxic equivalency factors (TEFs) for PCBs, PCDDs, PCDFs for humans and wildlife.
TLDR
It was concluded that the TEF concept is still the most plausible and feasible approach for risk assessment of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons with dioxinlike properties. Expand
