I recently attended a seminar on dioxins at which it was stated that there
was a rise in dioxin levels in the ambient air in winter due to wood fire
(open fire places and wood heaters) use. However, there were some views that
the rise in dioxin levels in the ambient air did not present a health risk
to the population as it was only ingestion of dioxins that was a problem.
Any views on this?
