There's Dioxins in that there Food

A really interesting post from Marion Nestle on a new report from the EPA on Dioxins in our food.  

As you can expect, the news is not good, and big food is trying to suppress it.

Eating high levels of meat, fish and dairy can lead to high exposures to dioxins, which is just not news that the people making billions off of feeding us what amounts to poison want us to hear.

Essentially, dioxins enter the food chain through the industrial process.   They accumulate in fatty tissues, and increase the risk of cancer in humans. 

The best way to avoid Dioxins?  Eat less meat, fish and dairy.

Definitely not what the food industry wants us to hear.
