    perfectly true - heating of plastics, especially to the level where they
    melt or burn, releases dioxins, which are a proven carcinoginec - this
    again supports the view that we need to be very careful where we use
    plastics, what type they are, and ensure that only easily re-used or
    recycled plastics are used.... consumers, wake up!
