These were the findings reported in THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE by Brent Israelsen on an article published in PubMed Central (PMC),the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) free digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature.

Where Do You Get Arsenic Exposure From?
Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 8th edition. © 2009, Elsevier states:
"Exposure to arsenic occurs mostly in the workplace, near hazardous waste sites, or in areas with high natural levels. "
Arsenic is naturally in some soils. It leaches into the water we drink and the air we breath. It is prevalent in the chemicals that go into the products in our homes and public buildings.
On Feb 18, 2011, Harvard University published an article entitled:
Chronic Arsenic Poisoning: History, Study and Remediation
It tells of the many sources of contamination and the possible solutions.
Arsenic Poisoning Symptoms Are Among The Most Common Health Complaints
Arsenic poisoning is among the many causes of our most common complaints. Such as:
- Fatigue, headaches, dry eyes,
- Confusion, most generally described as brain fog,
- Ringing in the ears, vision changes, especially when blurring comes and goes
But Did You Know
Arsenic poisoning is also connected with:
- Warts or hyperkeratosis, (Wikipedia.org states that hyperkeratosis can be caused by vitamin A deficiency or chronic exposure to or chronic exposure to arsenic.)
- Becoming noticeably overly sensitive to smells, noise, tastes
- Burning, tingling, or sensation of "pins and needles" (neuropathy) generally in hands and feet but can be in other parts of the body (peripheral neuropathy )
- Darkening of the skin (hyperpigmentation)
- Birth defects and spontaneous abortions
- Liver damage
- Malignancy (Malignant is a corresponding adjectival medical term used to describe a severe and progressively worsening disease. Wikipedia.org)
Changes To Arsenic Regulation
Arsenic Poisoning is of perticular interest to Utah residence, The Smithsonian/NASA Astrophysics Data System published and abstract article by Micheal Arnold intitled, Arsenic in Utah on it's website:
In 2001, new research resulted in a change to the national regulations for the amount of arsenic allowed in drinking water. The naturally occurring levels of arsenic in Utah are greater than any other state in the US,....
On February 2, 2001,The Salt Lake Tribune reported on the only arsenic study done in the United States. In a news article entitled: EPA Toughens Water-System Arsenic Limits Impact Utah New writer, Brent Isaelsen wrote:
"The only arsenic study in the United States was conducted in Millard County, Utah. That study showed an association between arsenic, which ranged from 12 ppb to 120 ppb in the drinking water, and high rates of some diseases.
45% higher prostate cancer?
220% higher in heart attachs?
40 times higher leukemia in children?
The study found male death rates from "hypertensive heart disease" were 220 percent higher than expected for Millard County residents. The rate of prostate cancer was 45 percent higher than expected.
In Fallon, Nev., where the childhood leukemia rate is 40 times the national average, health officials are investigating the possible role of arsenic. For years, Fallon has refused to treat its water, which has an arsenic concentration above 100 ppb."
