PCDD/PCDF in humans, a 1993-update of background data

Chemosphere. Nov-Dec 1994;29(9-11):2355-60. doi: 10.1016/0045-6535(94)90404-9.

Abstract

70 blood samples--collected in 1993 in Germany--have been analysed for PCDD/PCDF. For all persons involved, no certain expose, except for food consumption, has been reported. The levels measured show a decrease of PCDD/PCDF compared to previous data on blood collected mainly in 1989 and in 1992. This trend for the dioxin values in blood corresponds well to the observations reported for human milk.
