Arsenic: A shiny gray element with atomic symbol As, atomic number 33, and atomic weight 75. It occurs throughout the universe, mostly in the form of metallic arsenides. Most forms are toxic. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), arsenic and certain arsenic compounds have been listed as known carcinogens. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)Arsenic Poisoning: Disorders associated with acute or chronic exposure to compounds containing ARSENIC (ARSENICALS) which may be fatal. Acute oral ingestion is associated with gastrointestinal symptoms and an encephalopathy which may manifest as SEIZURES, mental status changes, and COMA. Chronic exposure is associated with mucosal irritation, desquamating rash, myalgias, peripheral neuropathy, and white transverse (Mees) lines in the fingernails. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1212)Arsenicals: Inorganic or organic compounds that contain arsenic.Oxides: Binary compounds of oxygen containing the anion O(2-). The anion combines with metals to form alkaline oxides and non-metals to form acidic oxides.Water Pollutants, Chemical: Chemical compounds which pollute the water of rivers, streams, lakes, the sea, reservoirs, or other bodies of water.Cacodylic Acid: An arsenical that has been used as a dermatologic agent and as an herbicide.Arsenites: Inorganic salts or organic esters of arsenious acid.Arsenates: Inorganic or organic salts and esters of arsenic acid.Drinking Water: Water that is intended to be ingested.Sodium Compounds: Inorganic compounds that contain sodium as an integral part of the molecule.Water Supply: Means or process of supplying water (as for a community) usually including reservoirs, tunnels, and pipelines and often the watershed from which the water is ultimately drawn. (Webster, 3d ed)BangladeshNails: The thin, horny plates that cover the dorsal surfaces of the distal phalanges of the fingers and toes of primates.Environmental Exposure: The exposure to potentially harmful chemical, physical, or biological agents in the environment or to environmental factors that may include ionizing radiation, pathogenic organisms, or toxic chemicals.Water Pollution, Chemical: Adverse effect upon bodies of water (LAKES; RIVERS; seas; groundwater etc.) caused by CHEMICAL WATER POLLUTANTS.Water Wells: Constructions built to access underground water.Soil Pollutants: Substances which pollute the soil.

Arsenic trioxide and melarsoprol induce apoptosis in plasma cell lines and in plasma cells from myeloma patients. (1/242)

Recent data have renewed the interest for arsenic-containing compounds as anticancer agents. In particular, arsenic trioxide (As2O3) has been demonstrated to be an effective drug in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia by inducing programmed cell death in leukemic cells both in vitro and in vivo. This prompted us to study the in vitro effects of As2O3 and of another arsenical derivative, the organic compound melarsoprol, on human myeloma cells and on the plasma cell differentiation of normal B cells. At pharmacological concentrations (10(-8) to 10(-6) mol/L), As2O3 and melarsoprol caused a dose- and time-dependent inhibition of survival and growth in myeloma cell lines that was, in some, similar to that of acute promyelocytic leukemia cells. Both arsenical compounds induced plasma cell apoptosis, as assessed by 4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole staining, detection of phosphatidylserine at the cell surface using annexin V, and by the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated nick end labeling assay. As2O3 and melarsoprol also inhibited viability and growth and induced apoptosis in plasma-cell enriched preparations from the bone marrow or blood of myeloma patients. In nonseparated bone marrow samples, both arsenical compounds triggered death in myeloma cells while sparing most myeloid cells, as demonstrated by double staining with annexin V and CD38 or CD15 antibodies. In primary myeloma cells as in cell lines, interleukin 6 did not prevent arsenic-induced cell death or growth inhibition, and no synergistic effect was observed with IFN-alpha. In contrast to As2O3, melarsoprol only slightly reduced the plasma cell differentiation of normal B cells induced by pokeweed mitogen. Both pokeweed mitogen-induced normal plasma cells and malignant plasma cells showed a normal nuclear distribution of PML protein, which was disrupted by As2O3 but not by melarsoprol, suggesting that the two arsenical derivatives acted by different mechanisms. These results point to the use of arsenical derivatives as investigational drugs in the treatment of multiple myeloma.  (+info)

Health impacts of domestic coal use in China. (2/242)

Domestic coal combustion has had profound adverse effects on the health of millions of people worldwide. In China alone several hundred million people commonly burn raw coal in unvented stoves that permeate their homes with high levels of toxic metals and organic compounds. At least 3,000 people in Guizhou Province in southwest China are suffering from severe arsenic poisoning. The primary source of the arsenic appears to be consumption of chili peppers dried over fires fueled with high-arsenic coal. Coal samples in the region were found to contain up to 35,000 ppm arsenic. Chili peppers dried over high-arsenic coal fires adsorb 500 ppm arsenic on average. More than 10 million people in Guizhou Province and surrounding areas suffer from dental and skeletal fluorosis. The excess fluorine is caused by eating corn dried over burning briquettes made from high-fluorine coals and high-fluorine clay binders. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons formed during coal combustion are believed to cause or contribute to the high incidence of esophageal and lung cancers in parts of China. Domestic coal combustion also has caused selenium poisoning and possibly mercury poisoning. Better knowledge of coal quality parameters may help to reduce some of these health problems. For example, information on concentrations and distributions of potentially toxic elements in coal may help delineate areas of a coal deposit to be avoided. Information on the modes of occurrence of these elements and the textural relations of the minerals and macerals in coal may help predict the behavior of the potentially toxic components during coal combustion.  (+info)

Increased chromosome-type chromosome aberration frequencies as biomarkers of cancer risk in a blackfoot endemic area. (3/242)

To examine whether biomarkers such as sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs) and chromosome aberrations (CAs) can predict cancer development, a nested case-control study was performed in a blackfoot endemic area with a known high cancer risk. A cohort of 686 residents was recruited from three villages in the blackfoot endemic area. Personal characteristics were collected, and venous blood was drawn for lymphocyte culture and stored in a refrigerator. The vital status and cancer development were followed using the National Death Registry, Cancer Registry, and Blackfoot Disease Registry. The follow-up period was from August 1991 to July 1995. During this 4-year period, 31 residents developed various types of cancer. Blood culture samples from nine of these subjects were unsuitable for experiments due to improper storage. Finally, a total of 22 cancer cases had cytogenetic samples that could be analyzed. Twenty-two control subjects were selected from those who did not develop cancer in the study period, and these subjects were matched to cases by sex, age, smoking habits, and residential area. The results showed that there was no significant difference in the frequencies of SCE and chromatid-type CAs between the case and control groups. However, the frequencies of chromosome-type CAs, e.g., chromosome-type gaps, chromosome-type breaks, chromosome-type breaks plus exchanges, total chromosome-type aberrations, and total frequencies of CAs in the case group, were significantly higher than those in the control group (P < 0.05). The odds ratio of cancer risk in subjects with more than zero chromosome-type breaks was 5.0 (95% confidence interval = 1.09-22.82) compared to those with zero chromosomal breaks. The odds ratios for more than zero chromosome-type breaks plus exchanges and a frequency of total chromosome-type aberrations of >1.007% were 11.0 and 12.0, respectively (P < 0.05). Subjects with a total CA frequency of >4.023% had a 9-fold increase for cancer risk. These results indicate that chromosome-type CAs are good biomarkers for the prediction of cancer development, whereas SCEs and chromatid-type CAs cannot predict cancer risk.  (+info)

Testing their metal. (4/242)

Metals continually rank at the top of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's annual list of agents that pose the greatest hazard to the people of the United States. Metals aren't going away, either. They do not biodegrade, and they often concentrate in human and animal cells and tissue. Many metals are known human and animal carcinogens, while many others are suspected to play a role in cancer. Little is known, however, about the mechanisms by which metals cause cancer.  (+info)

The development of Lewisite vapour induced lesions in the domestic, white pig. (5/242)

Studies performed in the past in our laboratory have detailed the development of sulphur mustard lesions in the domestic, white pig using small glass chambers to achieve saturated vapour exposure under occluded conditions. We have now used this experimental model to produce cutaneous lesions for detailed histopathological studies following challenge with lewisite. Histological examination of resulting lesions have revealed that although the overall pattern of lesion development is similar to that seen following mustard challenge, the time-course of cellular events is very much compressed. The epidermis showed focal basal cell vacuolation with associated acute inflammation as early as one hour postexposure. Coagulative necrosis of the epidermis and papillary dermis was complete by 24 hours and followed the appearance of multiple coalescent blisters between six and 12 hours post-exposure. At 48 hours, the lesions were full thickness burns with necrosis extending into the deep subcutaneous connective and adipose tissues. The study of lesions beyond 24 hours revealed early epithelial regeneration at the wound edge. The overall spontaneous healing rate of these biologically severe lesions was significantly faster than comparable sulphur mustard injuries and probably reflected a lack of alkylation of DNA and RNA.  (+info)

Arsenic-related Bowen's disease, palmar keratosis, and skin cancer. (6/242)

Chronic arsenical intoxication can still be found in environmental and industrial settings. Symptoms of chronic arsenic intoxication include general pigmentation or focal "raindrop" pigmentation of the skin and the appearance of hyperkeratosis of the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. In addition to arsenic-related skin diseases including keratosis, Bowen's disease, basal-cell-carcinoma, and squamous-cell carcinoma, there is also an increased risk of some internal malignancies. Arsenic-related diseases are common in areas of the world where the drinking water has a high arsenic content. In this paper, we describe a 35-year-old male patient who had arsenic-related keratosis, squamous-cell carcinoma in the palmar area of his left hand, and Bowen's disease on his left thigh. The patient worked in a borax mine for 15 years, so he was exposed to arsenic in drinking water, airborne arsenic in his workplace, and had direct contact. The patient was treated for 11 months for arsenic-related keratosis until an axillary lymph node metastasis occurred; the lesion was excised and diagnosed to be malignant. Bowen's disease was detected when the patient was being treated for cancer. No other malignancy was found. The patient is still receiving regular follow-up care.  (+info)

Enhanced transcription factor DNA binding and gene expression induced by arsenite or arsenate in renal slices. (7/242)

Although the kidney represents a target for the accumulation and toxicity of arsenic, little is known about the molecular targets of arsenic in this organ. Therefore, these studies were designed to examine the molecular impact of arsenite [As(III)] and arsenate [As(V)] at low (nanomolar) concentrations. Precision-cut rabbit renal cortical slices were challenged with As(III) or As(V) for up to 8 h. Neither form of the metal induced overt cytotoxicity as assessed by intracellular K+ levels over this time period at concentrations from 0.01-10 microM. In addition, no alterations in the expression of Hsp 60, 70, or 90 were observed. However, induction of heme oxygenase-1 (Hsp 32) was seen following a 4-h challenge with As(III), but not with As(V). As(III) and As(V) induced DNA binding of AP-1 at 2- and 4-h exposure; following a 6-h exposure there was no difference. Although no alteration in the DNA binding activity of ATF-2 was induced by As(III) or As(V), both forms enhanced the DNA binding activity of Elk-1. Enhanced DNA binding activity of AP-1 and Elk-1 correlated with increased gene expression of c-fos, but not c-jun, at 2 h. c-myc gene expression was also induced by As(III) and As(V), albeit at a later time point (6 h). These results suggest that acute arsenic challenge, by either As(III) or As(V), is associated with discrete alterations in the activity of signaling pathways and gene expression in renal tissue.  (+info)

Relations between exposure to arsenic, skin lesions, and glucosuria. (8/242)

OBJECTIVES: Exposure to arsenic causes keratosis, hyperpigmentation, and hypopigmentation and seemingly also diabetes mellitus, at least in subjects with skin lesions. Here we evaluate the relations of arsenical skin lesions and glucosuria as a proxy for diabetes mellitus. METHODS: Through existing measurements of arsenic in drinking water in Bangladesh, wells with and without arsenic contamination were identified. Based on a questionnaire, 1595 subjects > or = 30 years of age were interviewed; 1481 had a history of drinking water contaminated with arsenic whereas 114 had not. Time weighted mean arsenic concentrations and mg-years/l of exposure to arsenic were estimated based on the history of consumption of well water and current arsenic concentrations. Urine samples from the study subjects were tested by means of a glucometric strip. People with positive tests were considered to be cases of glucosuria. RESULTS: A total of 430 (29%) of the exposed people were found to have skin lesions. Corresponding to drinking water with < 0.5, 0.5-1.0, and > 1.0 mg/l of arsenic, and with the 114 unexposed subjects as the reference, the prevalence ratios for glucosuria, as adjusted for age and sex, were 0.8, 1.4, and 1.4 for those without skin lesions, and 1.1, 2.2, and 2.6 for those with skin lesions. Taking exposure as < 1.0, 1.0-5.0, > 5.0-10.0 and > 10.0 mg-years/l of exposure to arsenic the prevalence ratios, similarly adjusted, were 0.4, 0.9, 1.2, and 1.7 for those without and 0.8, 1.7, 2.1, and 2.9 for those with skin lesions. All series of risk estimates were significant for trend, (p < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that skin lesions and diabetes mellitus, as here indicated by glucosuria, are largely independent effects of exposure to arsenic although glucosuria had some tendency to be associated with skin lesions. Importantly, however, glucosuria (diabetes mellitus) may occur independently of skin lesions.  (+info)

The Binational Arsenic Exposure Survey (BAsES) was designed to evaluate probable arsenic exposures in selected areas of southern Arizona and northern Mexico, two regions with known elevated levels of arsenic in groundwater reserves. This paper describes the methodology of BAsES and the relationship between estimated arsenic intake from beverages and arsenic output in urine. Households from eight communities were selected for their varying groundwater arsenic concentrations in Arizona, USA and Sonora, Mexico. Adults responded to questionnaires and provided dietary information. A first morning urine void and water from all household drinking sources were collected. Associations between urinary arsenic concentration (total, organic, inorganic) and estimated level of arsenic consumed from water and other beverages were evaluated through crude associations and by random effects models. Median estimated total arsenic intake from beverages among participants from Arizona communities ranged from 1.7 to 14.1 µg
To date, we have analyzed 29668 hand tubewell water samples from 1721 villages / wards in 250 GPs/ Municipal area from all 26 blocks of the district (Table I). Figure I shows the groundwater arsenic situation in each block of Murshidabad with Pie-diagram distribution. We observed arsenic concentration above 10 µg/L in 15953 (53.8%) hand tubewells and in 7911 (26.7%) above 50 µg/L and 1337 (4.5%) of the tubewells had arsenic concentrations above 300µg/L. In Murshidabad the number of villagers where we found arsenic concentration above 10, 50 and 300 µg/L are 1320, 971 and 281 respectively; and 25, 24 and 17 blocks were found to be contaminated with arsenic levels above 10, 50 and 300 µg/L. Arsenic level above 1000µg/L was found in 71 tubewells; the maximum arsenic contamination level found in this district is 3003µg/L in the Nawda and Raghunathganj I blocks. ...
Arsenic contamination takes serious turn in Chandpur. CHANDPUR, June 25: Arsenic contamination has taken a serious turn in Chandpur district recently.. This was disclosed by Md. Sadeq Hossain, Executive Engineer of the local Public Health Engineering Department, in an exclusive talk with this correspondent recently.. About 1.25 lakh shallow tube-wells of all the eight upazilas of the district have already been sealed as the waters of those contain arsenic beyond permissible limits which are very much harmful to human body, he added. He disclosed that on an average 98 per cent shallow tube-wells of the district are arsenic contaminated.. A survey shows that 96 per cent tube-wells in Hajiganj, 98 per cent tube-wells in Faridganj, Shahrasti and Kochua, 85 per cent tube-wells in Haimchar and 80 per cent tube-wells in Matlab Sadar and newly created Matlab North upazilas are arsenic contaminated.. It is officially learnt that at present 5,000 people, mostly old men, women and children have been ...
Ingestion of arsenic is relatively common in the setting of homicide and is occasionally used in deliberate self-poisoning. Arsine gas and CCA exposure are not uncommon industrial exposures. Most organs can be involved and the diagnosis may not be obvious. \\ \\ Arsenic is a classic poison; implicated in the deaths of Tchaikovsky and Napoleon. It has also been used as a therapeutic substance since ancient times. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicines and most recently as a chemotherapeutic agent for the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukaemia. Chronic arsenic poisoning is a major public health crisis and an environmental disaster in Bangladesh and West Bengal, due to the contamination of ground water that affects millions of people. These chronic problems are beyond the scope of this course. \\ \\ Arsenic exists in many forms: arsine gas, elemental arsenic, inorganic oxides and organic arsenic. Acute arsenic poisoning is rare. The elemental form of arsenic is non-toxic but the ...

Inorganic arsenic is a human carcinogen that can target the liver, but its carcinogenic mechanisms are still unknown. Global DNA hypomethylation occurs during arsenic-induced malignant transformation in rodent liver cells. DNA hypomethylation can increase gene expression, particularly when occurring in the promoter region CpG sites, and may be a non-genotoxic mechanism of carcinogenesis. Thus, in the present study liver samples of male mice exposed to 0 (control) or 45 p.p.m. arsenic (as NaAsO2) in the drinking water for 48 weeks were analyzed for gene expression and DNA methylation. Chronic arsenic exposure caused hepatic steatosis, a lesion also linked to consumption of methyl-deficient diets. Microarray analysis of liver samples showed arsenic induced aberrant gene expression including steroid-related genes, cytokines, apoptosis-related genes and cell cycle-related genes. In particular, the expression of the estrogen receptor-α (ER-α), and cyclin D1 genes were markedly increased. RT-PCR and ...
The WHO recommended value of arsenic contamination in water is 0.01 mg/l, while the maximum permissible limit for Bangladesh and India has been fixed at 0.05 mg/l. In the DCH-SOES survey, less than 0.01 mg/l arsenic concentration was detected in 46% or 2803 out of 6101 water samples while above the WHO recommended value (0.01 mg/l) was found in the rest 54% or 3298 samples. On the other hand, arsenic concentration at less than the permissible limit (0.05 mg/l) was detected in 62% or 3783 samples, while above the limit was found in the rest 38% or 2318 water samples. Arsenic contamination at higher level than the WHO recommended value was found in the tube-wells of 52 districts out of the 60 surveyed. Of these, the level of arsenic presence exceeds the maximum permissible limit in the tube-wells water of 41 districts. In 11 districts, the level of arsenic concentration was found more than the WHO recommended value, but less than the maximum permissible limit. That means, highest 0.05 mg/l exist ...
Arsenic dissolved in water is acutely toxic and can lead to a number of health problems. Long-term exposure to arsenic in drinking-water causes increased risks of cancer in the skin, lungs, bladder and kidney. It also leads to other skin-related problems such hyperkeratosis and changes in pigmentation. Consumption of arsenic also leads to disturbance of the cardiovascular and nervous system functions and eventually leads to death. These health effects sometimes collectively referred to as arsenicosis have been demonstrated in many studies. Increased risks of lung and bladder cancer and of arsenic-associated skin lesions have been reported for consuming drinking-water with arsenic concentrations equal to or greater than 50 parts per billion (or microgram per liter). (WHO Environmental Health Criteria, No. 224: Arsenic).. Arsenicosis is recognizable from skin colour changes, blotches all over the face and body, hyper pigmentation on the chest and upper arms, hard patches on palms and soles of the ...
Arsenic biochemistry refers to biochemical processes that can use arsenic or its compounds, such as arsenate. Arsenic is a moderately abundant element in Earths crust, and although many arsenic compounds are often considered highly toxic to most life, a wide variety of organoarsenic compounds are produced biologically and various organic and inorganic arsenic compounds are metabolized by numerous organisms. This pattern is general for other related elements, including selenium, which can exhibit both beneficial and deleterious effects. Arsenic biochemistry has become topical since many toxic arsenic compounds are found in some aquifers, potentially affecting many millions of people via biochemical processes. The evidence that arsenic may be a beneficial nutrient at trace levels below the background to which living organisms are normally exposed has been reviewed. Some organoarsenic compounds found in nature are arsenobetaine and arsenocholine, both being found in many marine organisms. Some ...
Arsenic is carcinogenic, possibly partly through epigenetic mechanisms. We evaluated the effects of arsenic exposure and metabolism on DNA methylation. Arsenic exposure and methylation efficiency in 202 women in the Argentinean Andes were assessed from concentrations of arsenic metabolites in urine (inorgani
This blood test is used to measure Arsenic levels. Arsenic is a common cause of acute poisoning through heavy metals. Arsenic enters the environment through the smelting of copper, zinc and lead and is released through the manufacturing of certain chemicals. Pesticides that contain arsenic, when manufactured, release arsine gas. Arsenic has been found in water supplies around the world, which has the potential to leach into seafood. Arsenic is found in rat poisoning, fungicides and products used to protect wood. Arsenic toxicity affects the blood, kidneys, skin, digestive tract and central nervous system ...
BACKGROUND A large population in West Bengal, India has been exposed to naturally occurring inorganic arsenic through their drinking water. A cross-sectional survey involving 7683 participants of all ages was conducted in an arsenic-affected region between April 1995 and March 1996. The main focus of the study was skin keratoses and pigmentation alterations, two characteristic signs of ingested inorganic arsenic. Strong exposure-response gradients were found for these skin lesions. The study also collected limited information concerning respiratory system signs and symptoms, which we report here because increasing evidence suggests that arsenic ingestion also causes pulmonary effects. METHODS Participants were clinically examined and interviewed, and the arsenic content in their current primary drinking water source was measured. There were few smokers and analyses were confined to non-smokers (N = 6864 participants). RESULTS Among both males and females, the prevalence of cough, shortness of breath

The control of arsenic, a toxic and carcinogenic element, is an important issue for all copper smelters. In this work, the reaction mechanism and distribution behavior of arsenic in the bottom blown copper smelting process (SKS process) were investigated and compared to the flash smelting process. There are obvious differences of arsenic distribution in the SKS process and flash process, resulting from the differences of oxygen potentials, volatilizations, smelting temperatures, reaction intensities, and mass transfer processes. Under stable production conditions, the distributions of arsenic among matte, slag, and gas phases are 6%, 12%, and 82%, respectively. Less arsenic is reported in the gas phase with the flash process than with the SKS process. The main arsenic species in gas phase are AsS (g), AsO (g), and As2 (g). Arsenic exists in the slag predominantly as As2O3 (l), and in matte as As (l). High matte grade is harmful to the elimination of arsenic to gas. The changing of Fe/SiO2 has slight
2000, describes a method for removing arsenic from fly ash, in which arsenic is recovered as scorodite. The first treatment stage of the arsenic-containing material is the oxidation of trivalent arsenic (As(lll)) into pentavalent arsenic (As(V)) with a gas containing sulphur dioxide and oxygen in oxidising conditions, in which arsenic does not precipitate. After this, arsenic is precipitated in atmospheric conditions, in which the Fe(III)/As(V) mole ratio is specified as 1. Precipitation is carried out either in one or several stages, but precipitation as scorodite demands the over-saturation of the solution, which is achieved by recycling scorodite crystals to the first precipitation reactors and simultaneously neutralising the suspension. A beneficial pH range is around 1-2 and this is maintained by feeding a suitable neutralising agent into the precipitation stage. In these conditions, arsenic can be precipitated to the level of 0.5 g/l. The final arsenic removal to a level below 0.1 mg/l is ...

The Blackfoot are a tribe of Native Americans who currently live in Montana and Alberta. They lived northwest of the Great Lakes and came to participate in Plains Indian culture. In Blackfoot mythology, the supernatural world is dominated by the Sun. The Sun or the Creator (Nah-too-si; Super powered or Holiness) is believed to have created the earth and everything in the universe. Nah-too-si is sometimes personified by the mystical Napi, or Old Man. Napi was said to have been sent by the Nah-too-si to teach people how to live a sinless life, like He and his wife, Ksah-koom-aukie, Earth Woman. Napi is said to have given the Blackfoot visions and, by implication, Blackfoot music. The numbers four and seven, the cardinal directions, the six principle points and center, are important in Blackfoot mythology. Communication is believed to occur between the supernatural world and Blackfoot through visions of guardian spirits, during which songs and ceremonies may be imparted, such as that of medicine ...

Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) introduced a bill in Congress on Thursday which would limit the amount of inorganic arsenic permitted in rice and rice-based foods. The R.I.C.E (Reducing food-based Inorganic Compounds Exposure) Act would require the Food and Drug Administration to set a maximum permissible level of inorganic arsenic in rice and food containing rice. "Inorganic arsenic… Continue Reading. ...
The authors estimated the global burden of disease for bladder, lung, and skin cancers attributable to inorganic arsenic in food. The authors - 1) established dose response estimates by converting dose response estimates for water exposure to human dose; 2) estimated exposure using data on a common range of arsenic content for food crops grown in different parts of the world and dietary patterns in different parts of the world; 3) multiplied the dose-response slope factor with the estimated range of daily dietary inorganic arsenic exposure to characterize cancer risk; and 4) summed across different populations to estimate the global burden of a particular arsenic-induced cancer ...
5.1 Exposure data. Exposure of high levels of arsenic in drinking-water has been recognized for many decades in some regions of the world, notably in China, Taiwan (China) and some countries in Central and South America. More recently, it has been discovered that a number of other regions have drinking-water that is highly contaminated with arsenic. In most of these regions, the drinking-water source is groundwater, naturally contaminated from arsenic-rich geological formations. The primary regions where high concentrations of arsenic have been measured in drinking-water include large areas of Bangladesh, China and West Bengal (India) and smaller areas of Argentina, Australia, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan (China), the USA and Viet Nam. In some areas of Japan, Mexico, Thailand and other countries, mining, smelting and other industrial activities have contributed to elevated concentrations of arsenic in local water sources.. Levels of arsenic in affected areas may range from tens to hundreds or even ...
Exposure to arsenic, a common environmental toxin found in drinking water, leads to a host of neurological pathologies. We have previously demonstrated that developmental exposure to a low level of arsenic (50ppb) alters epigenetic processes that underlie deficits in adult hippocampal neurogenesis leading to aberrant behavior. It is unclear if arsenic impacts the programming and regulation of embryonic neurogenesis during development when exposure occurs. The master negative regulator of neural-lineage, REST/NRSF, controls the precise timing of fate specification and differentiation of neural stem cells (NSCs). Early in development (embryonic day 14), we observed increased expression of Rest, its co-repressor, CoREST, and the inhibitory RNA binding/splicing protein, Ptbp1, and altered expression of mRNA spliced isoforms of Pbx1 that are directly regulated by these factors in the male brain in response to prenatal 50ppb arsenic exposure. These increases were concurrent with decreased expression of
The result of this study demonstrates a dose-response relationship between inorganic arsenic exposure from drinking water and risk of hypertension. Despite the lack of previous individual exposure data and the lack of information on potential confounders other than those we controlled for, the association seems strong enough to support the possibility of a causal association. There is also good agreement with the observations from Taiwan.8 Although there was no comprehensive, systematic sampling of the water supplies of the study area, the existing water measurements permit a reasonably good assessment of arsenic exposure. Furthermore, the effect of various unknown factors, such as use of bottled water, would dilute the effect and lead to an underestimation of the association. Because our study subjects were recruited from villages in which residents had similar occupations, socioeconomic status, lifestyles, and dietary habits, including salt intake, the variation among subjects of these ...
In January 2016, the EU imposed a maximum limit of inorganic arsenic on manufacturers in a bid to mitigate associated health risks. Researchers at the Institute for Global Food Security at Queens have found that little has changed since this law was passed and that 50 percent of baby rice food products still contain an illegal level of inorganic arsenic.. "This research has shown direct evidence that babies are exposed to illegal levels of arsenic despite the EU regulation to specifically address this health challenge. Babies are particularly vulnerable to the damaging effects of arsenic that can prevent the healthy development of a babys growth, IQ and immune system to name but a few," said Andy Meharg, lead author of the study and professor of plant and soil sciences at Queens.. Rice has, typically, 10 times more inorganic arsenic than other foods and chronic exposure can cause a range of health problems including developmental problems, heart disease, diabetes and nervous system ...
From our show, youve heard about high arsenic levels in apple juice. Now, a new report sheds light on arsenic levels in another food: rice.
Protection against arsenic damage in organisms positioned deep in the tree of life points to early evolutionary sensitization. Here, marine sedimentary records reveal a Proterozoic arsenic concentration patterned to glacial-interglacial ages. The low glacial and high interglacial sedimentary arsenic concentrations, suggest deteriorating habitable marine conditions may have coincided with atmospheric oxygen decline after ~2.1 billion years ago. A similar intensification of near continental margin sedimentary arsenic levels after the Cryogenian glaciations is also associated with amplified continental weathering. However, interpreted atmospheric oxygen increase at this time, suggests that the marine biosphere had widely adapted to the reorganization of global marine elemental cycles by glaciations. Such a glacially induced biogeochemical bridge would have produced physiologically robust communities that enabled increased oxygenation of the ocean-atmosphere system and the radiation of the complex ...
The arsenic speciation and arsenic removal in chitosan packed column were studied. Arsenic removal experiments were carried out with an arsenic standard solution (1.0 mg/l) and drilled well water samples from Limon Mine Community at different pH, water flowrate, and volume of adsorbent material. The simulation of arsenic speciation was carried out at a pH range from 0 to 12, a temperature of 25ºC, a pE equal to 4, and a total arsenic concentration of 1.34 x 10-5 mol kg-1. According to speciation calculations arsenic is found mainly in oxidized form in the conditions of Limon Mines drilled well waters, dihydrogen arsenate ion (H2AsO4-), and hydrogen arsenate ion (HAsO42-) being the major species. The experiments showed that arsenic adsorption depends mainly on the pH as well as the activity of functional groups that compose the chitosan structure. At pH 3 and volume of adsorbent material of 337.8 cm3 an adsorption of 94% was obtained from arsenic standard solution, and the arsenic present in ...
Inorganic arsenic contamination of rice is a problem that has plagued rice supplies worldwide because rice is particularly effective at pulling metals out of soil. And it has not helped that millions of pounds of lead-arsenate and calcium-arsenate pesticides have been sprayed across many countries fields and orchards. In the United States especially, calcium arsenate was heavily sprayed on cotton crops, whose fields are highly contaminated with inorganic arsenic which in turn seeps into neighboring rice fields. Is it any surprise, then, that we have an arsenic problem in rice today? We truly do reap what we sow.. Classified as a human carcinogen, arsenic is particularly nasty at higher doses and inorganic arsenic is far worse than organic arsenic. But at very low doses arsenic actually has a hormetic effect, strengthening the organism to which it has been exposed. The CCCF, though, is concerned with levels of inorganic arsenic that will adversely affect human health.. Japan launched the ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Today, arsenic (As) poisoning is one of the major environmental threats worldwide as millions of human beings have been exposed to excessive arsenic through contaminated drinking water. The serious toxicity of arsenic has been well documented. Worldwide, communities demand novel separation technologies for the removal of arsenic from drinking water. Conventional adsorbent technologies currently in use for remediation of metal-contaminated water have various limitations in terms of capacity, selectivity and robustness. In this Phase I program, an arsenic selective ligand-anchored fiber adsorbent will be developed as the basis for an innovative arsenic removal technology for drinking water with higher capacity, good selectivity, and enhanced robustness compared to conventional technologies such as ion exchange, activated alumina, and others. The goals for this Phase I program will be achieved through the following Specific Aims: 1) to functionalize fibers with ...

Arsenicals are relatively weak poisons and the sisters being aware of this used two poisons, strychnine and cyanide, which dwarf arsenicals in their effectiveness. (1) Even though arsenic wasnt the agent of death arsenic and old lace has a much nicer artistic ring to it then strychnine and old lace or cyanide and old lace. Regardless, arsenic is a much feared material, resulting in what Ralph Zangaro calls arsenophobia. (2). No debate arsenic is a poison, but it has been used medicinally for more than 3000 years to treat human illnesses, including infectious diseases and malignancies. In recent times, Chinese researchers reported that arsenic trioxide induced remissions in patients with promyelocytic leukemia, a cancer of the blood, including those who had relapsed after other prior therapy. (3) In another report concerning a long-term study in China, doctors may appear to have safely and successfully treated patients with cancer of the blood and bone marrow with a combination of arsenic ...
The odourless and tasteless metal seeps into well water, and more than 10 years after the wells had been drilled, the effects of arsenic began to appear. People in the area exhibited skin lesions, which are a sign of chronic arsenic poisoning.. "The catastrophe was a fait accompli. Up to 70 million people in Bangladesh may be affected, making it the worlds largest mass poisoning.". For 20 years, Markus Tamas has studied how various toxic metals make their way into cells, why they are toxic for cells and what cells can do to defend against them. People have long known that metals have a variety of effects on us and on our health, but we havent known why this is so. For example, for a long time it has been known that silver has an antibacterial effect.. "In the past wealthy people bought silver vessels and kept water in them to purify it. So even though we have known that metals affect health, we have failed to understand this in detail.". In his research Markus has focused on arsenic and ...
Arsenic is found in waters in many parts of the UK. It is present in underground rocks and percolates into the ground water and then up through boreholes or springs into the water supply.. Arsenic compounds are toxic even at low levels. They can cause skin and liver disorders, circulatory problems and can be life threatening. The European Union has looked at the Arsenic levels in water and reduced the allowable limit to below 10ug/l (from 50ug/l).. The arsenic can be removed with a specially formulated filter media called Bayoxide. The media is strong, reliable and easy to handle. Bayoxide is regulation 31 approved (DWI) for use in both Municipal and Private water use.. ...
Arsenic concentrations from 20,450 domestic wells in the U.S. were used to develop a logistic regression model of the probability of having arsenic , 10 µg/L ("high arsenic"), which is presented at the county, state, and national scales. Variables representing geologic sources, geochemical, hydrologic, and physical features were among the significant predictors of high arsenic. For U.S. Census blocks, the mean probability of arsenic , 10 µg/L was multiplied by the population using domestic wells to estimate the potential high-arsenic domestic-well population. Approximately 44.1 M people in the U.S. use water from domestic wells. The population in the conterminous U.S. using water from domestic wells with predicted ...

The article explains why it was that standards of proof that were acceptable to different degrees to geologists, physicists and biologists were unacceptable to chemists. The answer pertains to what we call "background knowledge". In this case, chemists were compelled to ask how DNA with arsenic replacing phosphorus in its backbone could possibly be stable given everything they knew about the instability of arsenate esters. The latter had been studied for several decades, and while arsenic DNA itself had not been synthesized before, simpler arsenate esters were known to be highly unstable in water. The chemists were quite confident in extrapolating from these simple cases to questioning the stable existence of arsenic DNA; if arsenic DNA indeed were so stable, then almost everything they had known about arsenate esters for fifty years would have been wrong, a possibility that was highly unlikely. Thus for chemists, arsenic DNA was an extraordinary claim. And as Carl Sagan said, they needed to see ...
The committee also identified several factors that could affect susceptibility to inorganic arsenic, including life stage when exposure occurs, genetic factors, sex, nutritional deficiencies, health status, smoking or alcohol consumption, or exposures to mixtures of chemicals. Based on the degree of evidence concerning these vulnerability factors, consideration should be given to whether dose-response analyses should focus on the population as a whole or involve separate assessments for the susceptible groups, the report says. In particular, consideration should also be given to early-life exposure and the risk of adverse health effects later in life, the report adds. EPAs current approach of assessing partial-lifetime exposures by prorating the risk equally regardless of age needs to be critically evaluated to determine whether it is appropriate for assessing inorganic arsenic ...
A recent study done at Queens University (1) in Belfast found high levels of illegal, inorganic arsenic in many baby rice food products. A professor at the university stated, "this research has shown direct evidence that babies are exposed to illegal levels of arsenic despite the EU regulation to specifically address this health challenge. Babies are particularly vulnerable to the damaging effects of arsenic that can prevent the healthy development of a babys growth, IQ and immune system to name but a few." Babies require constant care and appropriate nutrients to aid healthy growth, but if youre feeding them harmful things such as inorganic arsenic, they could cause a range of health problems in the future such as developmental problems, heart disease, diabetes and nervous system damage. ...
Chronic exposure to inorganic arsenic leads to an increased risk of cancer. A biological measurement was conducted in 153 private well owners and their families consuming water contaminated by inorganic arsenic at concentrations that straddle 10 μg/L.
A 33-acre federal park in Northwest Washington was abruptly shut yesterday and will remain closed indefinitely after soil analysis found arsenic levels far above what the federal government considers safe, officials said.
Inorganic arsenic is an established cause of lung and skin cancer. Epidemiological evidence from Taiwan suggests that arsenic causes more fatal internal cancers, with the highest relative risks reported for bladder cancer. We conducted a cross-sectional biomarker study in a Chilean male population chronically exposed to high (70 subjects) and low (55 subjects) arsenic levels in their drinking water (average concentrations, 600 and 15 micrograms As/liter, respectively). A fluorescent version of the exfoliated bladder cell micronucleus (MN) assay was used employing fluorescence in situ hybridization with a centromeric probe to identify the presence (MN+) or absence (MN-) of whole chromosomes within micronuclei, thereby determining the mechanism of arsenic-induced genotoxicity in vivo. We divided the study population into quintiles by urinary arsenic levels and found an exposure-dependent increase in micronucleated cell prevalence in quintiles 2-4 (urinary arsenic, 54-729 micrograms/liter). The ...
Arsenic (As) is a ubiquitously present non-essential metalloid of serious environmental concern because of ever-increasing contamination [1, 2]. Naturally high levels of As in drinking water have caused major human health problems in the United States, Argentina, Taiwan, and most notably Bangladesh and India, where tens of millions of people have been affected [3, 4]. As finds its way into the food chain through irrigation with contaminated groundwater [5]. Uptake of As in plant tissues adversely affects the plant metabolism and leads to a significant reduction in crop yield [6-8]. Understanding of As-induced stress and ensuing tolerance would be beneficial for the development of As-resistance crops and other economically important plants [8].. Roots are involved in mineral acquisition by plants, and function at the interface with the rhizosphere. Alterations of root architecture and inhibition of root elongation are considered primary symptoms of As-toxicity [9, 10]. In many circumstances, it ...

The Arsenic Century, my accidental find, is an exhaustive look at the extremely liberal use of arsenic in the nineteenth century, with a focus on England and Victorian London. The author, James C. Whorton, delves into every aspect of it: how it is produced, how it was detected, the awful "cures" people used, and he does not shy away from graphic descriptions of the sicknesses and deaths it caused. Its (in large part) a fascinating history book that is sprinkled with science and riveting murder mysteries in the form of poisoning cases.. To this day, I think that is the association most people have with arsenic: murder by poison. In many instances it was deliberately administered to the unsuspecting with the intent of causing death, but in others, people were poisoning themselves by working with it to make artificial flowers, wallpapers, and dyes. Id heard of "arsenic green" but was unaware that arsenical compounds were used to make a vast array of colors.. People living in this time were also ...
Every morning, Sapan Das goes to the water filtration plant in his village, established a year ago by a New Delhi-based NGO, Sulabh International. This is the only source of clean water as the tube wells in the vicinity have been found to be arsenic contaminated.. Das, like the others in his village, Madusudan kati, in West Bengal, had been drinking water from the wells for the last twenty years without knowing that he was drinking poisonous water, till he found symptoms of illness, which the doctors then detected to have been caused by the contaminated water in the village.. There are more than 200 tube wells in this village, and all are found to be arsenic-hit. Doctors have summarily recommended them not to drink the water. Fortunately for Das and others in the village, the NGO is now providing fresh and clean water at inexpensive rates.. "The packaged water available in market costs around INR 20 for a litre, but now, we are getting 20 litres for INR 20 and qualitatively, it has a lot of ...

Arsenic is a well-known human carcinogen that affects millions of people worldwide, but the underlying mechanisms of carcinogenesis are unclear. Several epidemiological studies have suggested increased prostate cancer incidence and mortality due to exposure to arsenic. Due to lack of an animal model of arsenic-induced carcinogenesis, we used a prostate epithelial cell culture model to identify a role for mitochondria in arsenic-induced prostate cancer. Mitochondrial morphology and membrane potential was impacted within a few hours of arsenic exposure of non-neoplastic prostate epithelial cells. Chronic arsenic treatment induced mutations in mitochondrial genes and altered mitochondrial functions. Human non-neoplastic prostate epithelial cells continuously cultured for seven months in the presence of 5 µM arsenite showed tumorigenic properties in vitro and induced tumors in SCID mice, which indicated transformation of these cells. Protein and mRNA expression of subunits of mtOXPHOS complex I ...
My titles states exactly how I feel about arsenic, anything - anywhere. When I was a youth, giving arsenic to a troubling dog was the way things were done. This train of thought remains in place today, including humans and anything else. The old westerns depicted people faced certain death for not partaking of any water found, if it was believed to be poisoned by arsenic. I would not consider engaging in conversation with any one in reference to arsenic anywhere is safe to any degree. ...
asnicke; asnick; arssnick; arsnyck; arsnicke; arsnick; arsneck; arsenick; arsen; arsemake]. Arsenic is the name of one of the chemical elements. It is a violent poison and so are most of its compounds. Originally the name was applied to a bright yellow mineral (also called YELLOW arsenic). This is found native, and was manufactured. It was also referred to as ORPIMENT, or in Latin AURIPIGMENTUM. Chemically it is the trisulphide of arsenic, and this is and was used as a pigment under the name of KINGS YELLOW. The name, Arsenic, was sometimes extended to another sulphide of arsenic, a native mineral and product of art, the disulphide known variously as RED arsenic, Red orpiment, ruby sulphur, Realgar, ROSALGER, ROSAKER and SANDARAC. In popular use now, and possibly in the early modern period, arsenic could mean an oxide of arsenic, a white mineral substance, found both native and manufactured, originally distinguished as white arsenic. Flowers of arsenic is the same substance sublimed.. According ...

Well-known are the high-dose exposures in Taiwan, Chile and Bangladesh, exceeding the US EPA MCL a hundred-fold or more. Studies vary on whether or not there is a threshold exposure value below which arsenic is not harmful. Merely finding arsenic in water may not directly infer unacceptable risks. While there is some evidence for the threshold theory in laboratory rodents, the effect in humans may not be the same, prompting regulatory scientists to err on the side of safety and assume there is no dose threshold. The National Research Council has been critical of the US EPAs method for risk assessment related to arsenic exposures, suggesting that early-life exposures, even at low concentrations, present unacceptable risks. These risks are greater for many vulnerable populations, such as children and pregnant women or those suffering from chronic illnesses ...
The FDA has released a report on arsenic in rice. Testing is underway to study the amounts of arsenic, in micrograms, present in rice and rice products.
Ettinger AS, Arbuckle TE, Fisher M, Liang CL, Davis K, Mihai Cirtiu C, Bélanger P, LeBlanc A, Fraser WD, the MIREC Study Group. Environmental Research. 2017 Feb;153:8-16. doi: 10.1016/j.envres.2016.11.008.. Arsenic is a common environmental contaminant from both naturally-occurring and anthropomorphic sources and human exposure can be detected in various tissues. Its toxicity depends on many factors including the chemical form, valence state, bioavailability, metabolism and detoxification within the human body. Of paramount concern, particularly with respect to health effects in children, is the timing of exposure as the prenatal and early life periods are more susceptible to toxic effects. The Maternal-Infant Research on Environmental Chemicals (MIREC) cohort was established to obtain national-level biomonitoring data for approximately 2,000 pregnant women and their infants between 2008 and 2011 from 10 Canadian cities. We measured total arsenic (As) in 1st and 3rd trimester maternal blood, ...

Human exposure to arsenic has been linked to an array of adverse health effects. Drinking water with arsenic for many years can lead to cancer of the bladder, lung, liver, prostate, and skin; diabetes; heart disease; reproductive and developmental problems; and cardiovascular, pulmonary, immunological, neurological, and endocrine problems. Fetuses and babies exposed to arsenic face an increased potential for cancer and other diseases in adulthood. Exposure has also been associated with increased infant mortality, reduced birth weight, and reduced ability to fight other diseases. See this earlier post on arsenics impact on IQs.. While attention has been traditionally paid to high-dose arsenic exposures through drinking water and of industrial workers, recent studies have focused on the equally pernicious effects of low level exposures via both water and food. For example, application of pesticides containing arsenic by U.S. cotton, tobacco, grape and apple growers in the 1950s has resulted in ...
Native arsenic. Arsenic in its native form, as here, is rare. It is more commonly found and mined as salts and minerals. This polished slab, from the St. Andreasberg mines in Germany, shows patterns in various shades of grey.

Mengs process requires just two buckets, some sand, and a tea-bag-sized packet of iron-based powder. Pour tainted water into one bucket, along with the powder, and stir. Arsenic bonds to the iron and coagulates out of the water. After a minute, pour the mix into a second bucket filled with 4 inches of sand. The sand filters out the arsenic-iron particles, leaving the water pure. In yearlong pilot tests with 300 Bangladeshi families, Meng measured arsenic concentrations in well water as high as 648 parts per billion. The bucket filter reduced that to 10 parts per billion, at a cost of about $2 a year per family ...

It was the big news that wasnt. Hyperbolic claims about the possible discovery of alien life, or a second branch of life on Earth, turned out to be nothing more than bacteria that can thrive on arsenic, using it in place of phosphorus in their DNA and other molecules. But after the initial layers of hype were peeled away, even this extraordinary claim started falling under suspicious glances.. Ive already talked about the untrammelled hype that surrounded this paper and I wont retread that ground again. This is a chronological roundup of the criticism against the science in the paper itself, ending with some personal reflections on my own handling of the story (skip to Friday, December 10th for that bit).. Thursday, December 2nd: Felisa Wolfe-Simon published a paper in Science, claiming to have found bacteria in Californias Mono Lake that can grow using arsenic instead of phosphorus. Given that phosphorus is meant to be one of six irreplaceable elements, this would have been a big deal, not ...

Now we are getting somewhere, at the issues. First full disclosure: I have no expertise or financial interests in arsenic, biology, or their related industries. I have enormous interest in valid science, and sound scientific governmental policy.. My judgments: The US will not survive its political, as distinguished from science based, technical risk assessments. Arsenic is simply one example of a topic worthy of discussion: How do we set trace limits of anything, which may, or may not, cause harm over long periods of time? Or be beneficial? To answer these ubiquitous risk questions required tons of money and talent which does not exist. The issue has created two political camps: academics and regulators, whose rice bowl depends on justifying their expertise in "exposing" real and present dangers in socially consumed substances, or corporate technocrats who are paid to make it, cheaply, for sale. Add to this conflict, the revolution in electronics which is now capable of detecting ppb ...

In 2013 FSANZ released a survey on the levels of inorganic arsenic in a range of seaweed types and products containing seaweed, available in Australia.. The levels in most seaweed tested were below the regulatory limit for inorganic arsenic, with the exception of one hijiki seaweed sample. Because this sample was made up of two individual samples of the same brand of hijiki it may not be representative of all hijiki seaweed available for sale in Australia. Hijiki seaweed is also tested at the border for inorganic arsenic and compliance rates are high.. The New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has also conducted tests on levels of arsenic in imported hijiki products and found some levels exceeding the regulatory limit for inorganic arsenic.. Using the information collected on the levels of inorganic arsenic in seaweed, dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic was estimated for the Australian population. Using the median inorganic arsenic concentrations in seaweed, the contribution of ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! We exploit recent molecular genetics evidence on the genetic basis of arsenic excretion and unique information on family links among respondents living in different environments from a large panel survey within a theoretical framework incorporating optimizing behavior to uncover the hidden costs of arsenic poisoning in Bangladesh. We provide for the first time estimates of the effects of the ingestion and retention of inorganic arsenic on direct measures of cognitive and physical capabilities as well as on the schooling attainment, occupational structure, entrepreneurship and incomes of the rural Bangladesh population. We also provide new estimates of the effects of the consumption of foods grown and cooked in arsenic-contaminated water on individual arsenic concentrations. The estimates are based on arsenic biomarkers obtained from a sample of members of rural households in Bangladesh who are participants in a long-term panel survey following respondents and their
Background In the Ganges Delta, chronic arsenic poisoning is a health concern affecting millions of people who rely on groundwater as their potable water source. The prevalence of anemia is also high in this region, particularly among women. Moreover, arsenic is known to affect heme synthesis and erythrocytes and the risk of arsenic-induced skin lesions appears to differ by sex. Methods We conducted a case-control study in 147 arsenic-exposed Bangladeshi women to assess the association between anemia and arsenic-induced skin lesions. Results We observed that the odds of arsenic-related skin lesions were approximately three times higher among women who were anemic (hemoglobin , 120 g/L) compared to women with normal hemoglobin levels [Odds Ratio (OR) = 3.32, 95 % Confidence Intervals (CI): 1.29, 8.52] after adjusting for arsenic levels in drinking water and other covariates. Furthermore, 75 % of the women with anemia had adequate iron stores (serum ferritin ≥12 μg/L), suggesting that the ...

Dietary factors such as folate, vitamin B12, protein, and methionine are important for the excretion of arsenic via one-carbon metabolism in undernourished populations exposed to high levels of arsenic via drinking water. However, the effects of dietary factors on toenail arsenic concentrations in well-nourished populations exposed to relatively low levels of water arsenic are unknown. As part of a population-based case-control study of skin and bladder cancer from the USA, we evaluated relationships between consumption of dietary factors and arsenic concentrations in toenail clippings. Consumption of each dietary factor was determined from a validated food frequency questionnaire. We used general linear models to examine the associations between toenail arsenic and each dietary factor, taking into account potentially confounding effects. As expected, we found an inverse association between ln-transformed toenail arsenic and consumption of vitamin B12 (excluding supplements) and animal protein.
This research project is a case study of the Asarco Tacoma smelter and the historical antecendents of widespread soil contamination in the Puget Sound region. From 1890 through 1985, Ruston, a small town near Tacoma, Washington, was home to one of the countrys most polluting smelters, which produced lead, copper, precious metals, arsenic trioxide, and sulfuric acid at various points during its operation. Owned by the American Smelting and Refining Company (Asarco), and primarily a copper smelter, the Tacoma smelter was unique for two reasons: it was able to process ore with high arsenic content; and it was located in an urban area. The environmental consequences of nearly a century of smelting include widespread arsenic, lead and other heavy metal soil contamination, contamination of sediments in Puget Sound, and arsenic slag, a by-product of smelting, dispersed throughout the region. The social consequences include: residents concerns about health, as awareness of potential exposure to toxins ...
The purpose of this study is to study the effect of an anticancer drug, Arsenic Trioxide, in patients with small cell lung cancer who have failed at least one standard chemotherapy regimen as well as patients who are unable to tolerate the standard treatment for their cancer.
