Arsenic ranks 12th in abundance in the earth’s crust, 14th in the sea water. It can exist in both inorganic and organic forms; inorganic arsenic is considered more toxic. Humans exposed to arsenic mainly through food and water, particularly in areas where the ground water is in contact with arsenic containing minerals.
