Excerpt
Excerpt: Arsenic, a ubiquitous element present in the environment, is the main constituent of more than 200 mineral species on earth (1). In addition to its natural occurrence in mineral deposits, arsenical compounds are used in many human activities such as manufacturing, agriculture, and medicine (2). Arsenical compounds are transported into the environment mainly by water from wells drilled into arsenic-rich geologic strata or by ambient air during the smelting and burning of coal (1,2). However, the main route of arsenic exposure for the general population is via drinking water (2,3). Epidemiologic studies have documented that long-term exposure to inorganic arsenic (InAs) is associated with an increased risk of cancer of the lung, skin, and probably other anatomic sites (4,5). InAs is also one of major risk factors for blackfoot disease (BFD), a unique peripheral vascular disease identified in endemic areas of arseniasis in Taiwan where residents had used high-arsenic?tainted artesian well water for more than 50 years (6). In addition, cardiovascular disease, such as ischemic heart disease and coronary heart disease (7,8), and cerebrovascular accidents (9) are also closely related to long-term ingestion of high-arsenic drinking water.
