(with photos and Tables)

Arsenic, a notorious poison, is now recognized to be one of the world’s greatest environmental
hazards, threatening the lives of several hundred million people. Long-term exposure to low levels
of arsenic in food and water produces a broad array of effects on human health that are often
described by the catch-all term arsenicosis.
