In 1976 the population of an area including Seveso (about 30,000) affected by the fallout of a toxic cloud containing 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) started a health monitoring plan which lasted until 1985. Smaller groups were monitored until 1997. The large number of people and the different toxic effects on organs have gathered different discipline experts including informatic. This work has permitted the not easy observation both of minor and bigger effects during two decades.
