You my not know this but many of you are consuming dioxin, yes thats what i said. DIOXIN is also the biproduct of SOAPS AND BLEACH AND PAPER MILLS and and on and on. There are small amounts of dioxin STILL IN THE BLEACH. A wile back many salmon ponds where closed down in californa because they tested high in dioxin . This is why the more you wash your hands , the lower your imune system will be, making you more likely to catch colds and flues.
ScienceDaily (May 25, 2010) — Specific dioxins derived from the antibacterial agent triclosan, used in many hand soaps, deodorants, dishwashing liquids and other consumer products, account for an increasing proportion of total dioxins in Mississippi River sediments, according to University of Minnesota research.
Triclosan is incompletely removed during the wastewater treatment process, and when treated wastewater is released to the environment, sunlight converts some of the triclosan (and related compounds) into dioxins.
A World War II-era weed killer, 2,4-D, is one of the top three largest selling pesticides in North America today, despite dozens of scientific studies that link this pesticide to lymphoma, cell damage, hormonal disruption, and reproductive problems. Once a chief ingredient in Agent Orange, 46 million pounds of 2,4-D are still used every year in the United States alone, applied to lawns, playgrounds, golf courses, and millions of acres of agricultural land. 2,4-D contaminates our air and water and finds its way into our homes, tracked in by shoes and pet paws. The application of toxic 2,4-D will dramatically increase if new genetically modified (GMO) corn and soybean crops are approved, putting thousands more Americans at risk. Vietnam Veterans of America opposes this action until such time as an environmental impact study is performed and believes that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should restrict use of 2,4-D and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) should not allow new "2,4-D Ready" crops on the market until then.

Dioxin isn't a specific substance. In the same way chemical compound or isotope or acid don't refer to a specific substance.
If we're discussing a dioxin it would therefore be useful to specify which one is being referred to. To avoid any possible confusion
Dear King of Trivia: Monsanto doesn't want Dioxin from Round-Up-Ready linked with Agent Orange. Make sense?

The Day Mysterious Gelatinous Blobs Rained Down on Washington State Residents The townspeople of Oakville, Washington, were in for a surprise on August 7, 1994. Instead of their usual downpour of rain, the inhabitants of the small town witnessed countless gelatinous blobs falling from the sky. Once the globs fell, almost everyone in Oakville started to develop severe flu-like symptoms that lasted anywhere from 7 weeks to 3 months. Finally, after exposure to the goo caused his mother to fall ill, one resident sent a sample of the blobs for testing. What the technicians discovered was shocking—the globs contained human white blood cells. The substance was then brought to the State Department of Health of Washington for further analysis. Another startling revelation followed: they discovered that the gelatinous blobs had two types of bacteria, one of which is found in the human digestive system. However, no one could successfully identify the blob, nor how they were connected to the mysterious sickness that plagued the town. This article attempts to tackle this mystery as well - wafflesatnoon.com... 'Unsolved Mysteries' episode ('The Blob') - www.youtube.com... As always, you decide for yourself.

a small town in Washington state falls victim to a plague of sorts after tiny blobs of gelatinous goo rained from the sky on August 7, 1994. It made dozens of people severely ill.
Black military helicopters were sighted in the Oakville, Washington area before rain storms brought the fall of the unknown substance.
In 1997, residents of in the Everett area of Washington State reported a similar clear gelatinous substance falling from the sky, according to a guest on Art Bell’s syndicated radio program. “Art’s guest says she received hundreds of calls from people all over the country that have also reported the fall of deadly gelatin blobs.”
Well this is a well documented mystery. The people in all the Washington towns claim it made them sick. The military as useuall denied everything and offered rediculous excuses.
You decide for yourself, but I think it is likely.
