The US EPA dioxin reassessment includes a quantification of the cancer risk imposed by dioxin exposure. Based upon EPA data generated prior to the tenancy of the Bush administration, the average American eats a quantity of animal fat foods: dairy products, meats and eggs that contains the amount of dioxins equal to a 1.0 pg/kg bw/day dose. The cancer risk slope factor for dioxin exposure is 1/1000. By multiplying the exposure number by the cancer risk slope factor one calculates the cancer risk imposed by dioxin exposure for those Americans who consume the average amount of animal fat. This means that dioxin exposure cancer risk is 1 in 1000 for Americans who do not follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. Therefore, the public health effect of dioxin exposure is the number of cancer cases that equals 1/1000 of the total number of non-vegetarians, non-vegans in the US population. This is well over 100,000 people. Why doesn't the government tell people to strictly limit their animal fat food consumption and thereby prevent all these cancer cases.
