What are the effects of Arsenic on human health?


Arsenic is a very toxic substance, four times more toxic than mercury. It has been recognized by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the European Union (EU) as a group 1 cancerous chemical.

Arsenic is a component of the earth's crustal sediment, so it is present in the underground aquifers and surface waters, although at a low concentration of some μg / l. Arsenic pollution in groundwater has been found in many countries around the world: Vietnam, Bangladesh, Chile, China, Cambodia.

Elements of Arsenic can penetrate the body in three ways: respiratory, skin or through the digestive system which is most common. Arsenic affects the circulatory system, the nervous system. If poisoned it can cause hair loss, nausea, weight loss, cancer and memory loss. Arsenic also changes the balance of the body's enzyme system, so its effects on women and children are greatest.
