concentrations of dioxins, furans, and dioxin-like PCBs (total TEQ) would on average contribute 43% and 39% (SD 17% for both) for the GP and SP advisories, respectively.
This is an expense she is willing to pay--they will receive at least three years' light from Little Sun, and the family are free from breathing hazardous kerosene fumes (breathing fumes from a kerosene lamp is the toxic equivalent
to smoking 40 cigarettes a day).

He added that late in 1994 the Environmental Protection Agency proposed regulations that would provide for the measurement of the dioxin family to be expressed as toxic equivalent

The unique congener pattern [TCDD was the major (70-80%) contributor to the toxic equivalent
(TEQ) (38,39)] suggested that the community was exposed to a TCDD-contaminated stock of the herbicide 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T), similar to the defoliant Agent Orange that was used in Vietnam.
Blood dioxin levels for the TrCP workers were originally obtained from a small sampling in 1992 which indicated a higher overall toxic equivalent
(TEQ) exposure along with the presence of the toxic PnCDD congener.
Furthermore, the final result is only a toxic equivalent
and thus gives no information about the dioxin pattern of exposure, which yields information about the exposure scenario, including the source.
