Michigan State University to lead $14 million Dioxin Research
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State University scientists plan to lead a $14.1 million initiative to better understand how dioxins affect human health and identify new ways of removing them from the environment, the school announced Tuesday.
Researchers will use a five-year grant from the Superfund Research Program of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to support multiple studies on the toxic industrial byproducts, the East Lansing school said.
"This class of compounds can be detected virtually everywhere in the world, and they can remain in the environment for decades," lead researcher Norbert Kaminski, director of the school's Center for Integrative Toxicology and a professor of pharmacology and toxicology, said in a statement.

  1. Quite an opportunity, however, If our Government is funding this, well, the research will be censored, results will be placed under a microscope, the tax payers will flip the bill for another "bridge to no where". Maybe have the Health Science students read and report on the ... Fordham Environmental Law, volume 6; Dated 1991 I believe, land just what dioxins can due to a human, and just how they have to exist after exposure.. it sure is NOT living - its existence only..
