Dioxin dissolves easily in fats and as a result can build up in the fatty tissues of animals or humans.
So animals with high fat contents, like humans, whales, polar bears or dolphins, are particularly susceptible to the build up of dioxin. As it travels up the food chain - if an animal with dioxin in its body tissue is eaten by another animal, for instance - dioxin biomagnify, or multiply in concentration as it goes.
