Human arsenic exposure and risk assessment at the landscape level: A review

Khan, Nasreen Islam; Owens, Gary; Bruce, David; Naidu, Ravi

Description

Groundwater contaminated with arsenic (As), when extensively used for irrigation, causes potentially long term detrimental effects to the landscape. Such contamination can also directly affect human health when irrigated crops are primarily used for human consumption. Therefore, a large number of humans are potentially at risk worldwide due to daily As exposure. Numerous previous studies have been severely limited by small sample sizes which are not reliably extrapolated to large populations or...[Show more]
