Even very small doses of dioxin have proven to be lethal to animals, and concentrations of several millionths of a gram will cause them to give birth to malformed offspring. Furthermore, the chemical has now been shown to cause cancer in animals. Alastair Hay's timely volume details the chemistry of the dioxins (there are seventy-five different types), their biological or toxic properties, their effect on the skin, and alternatives to their use. In addition, The Chemical Scythe addresses the controversial sociopolitical problems related to the manufacture and use of such toxic chemicals.
