Incinerator health hazard
Emissions from incinerators are toxic. The substances emitted are well know for their health effects, such as cancer causing dioxins.
Some research exists claiming that incineration is a safe technology, while other research claims it to be a dangerous technology. In the second case, incineration has been associated with increased levels of Infant Mortality.
GlosVAIN believes that where such uncertainty exists we should err on the side of caution and not risk damaging people's health. This is not least because over 20,000 children attend school within 5 miles of the planned site of the incinerator.
