Proctor & Gamble defends their carcinogen

April 2012, Fox 19:

"The safety and trust of the people who use our products is the foundation of everything we do. We only market products that have been thoroughly evaluated for safety and meet all regulatory requirements. Trace amounts of the by product in question, 1,4 dioxane, are commonly found in food, the air we breathe and the water we drink. Government agencies around the globe have looked at all the sources of 1,4 dioxane people contact in everyday life and have concluded that there is no risk for consumers. For perspective drinking 2 liters of water that meets world health (WHO) standards would result in 4500 times the amount of 1,4 dioxane from using detergent. A person would have to wash and wear well over 1000 loads of laundry every day to exceed a safe range. As part of what we do every day, we tightly control and monitor our products and continually improve our processes to maintain quality and safety."

What do you think?

My question is: Is the chemical in the water, the food, and the air BECAUSE we manufacture and use it or does it occur naturally.Is it accumulating without measure?
