In brief: Not great

is an extremely toxic chemical.
A draft report by the EPA described dioxin as a Group 1 carcinogen, and that levels of dioxin have been found in the US population that are "at or near levels associated with adverse health effects." Most studies linking dioxin to cancer are animal based where the animals are more susceptible. Low dose dioxin is present in almost all and are not a serious risk.
