Arsenic

Arsenic contaminated water

Arsenic is a natural element found on earth as it is usually called the “king of poisons” and the “poison of kings” which is released both from certain human activities and naturally from the Earth’s crust. 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.
