Arsenic is an abundant, naturally occurring element that can be found at varying concentrations in the Earth’s outer crust. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and US EPA have classified arsenic as a human carcinogen.
Groundwater consumption is one of the most common sources of arsenic exposure, and even at extremely low levels, arsenic consumption has recently been linked to the development of cancer, diabetes, oxidative stress, DNA damage, skin damage, and immune system malfunction in susceptible persons.
Levels of Arsenic in groundwater vary greatly depending on region, so the best way to ensure you are protecting yourself from harmful contaminants like Arsenic is to consult a water treatment expert who can perform appropriate water testing and provide you with solutions specific to your needs.
