Our weekly segment on citizen action is an interview with Lois Gibbs, author of Dying from Dioxin: A citizen’s guide to Reclaiming Our Health and Rebuilding Democracy. Dioxins are a by-product of industrial production and burning of hazardous wastes; there’s scientific evidence that they are affecting hormone levels and human reproduction. The chemical industry is fighting back against these allegations saying they are based on fear, not science.
