Does your barbecue produce dioxin?

Smoke from barbecues may contain dioxin in dosages that are seven times higher than those permitted for the chimneys of incinerators.

Breathing in the smoke of a barbecue is the equivalent of breathing in the dioxin of 220 thousand cigarettes.
However, you do not have to do without your barbecue, just avoid doing it too often and follow a few instructions: avoid the naked flame that chars the meat; cover the embers with some ash to keep a lower temperature; use palettes rather than forks to turn the meat over, to avoid piercing the meat which makes fats and juices come out, and keep as far away as possible from the smoke.

"..the objective is to reduce the production of waste, and just like the incentive for the separation of rubbish for disposal purposes, these are important signals of a correct environmental policy, although rubbish should also be eliminated..."
