arsenic poisoning in Bangladesh is entering into the domain of securitization as it is crossing the threshold of being regarded as a health problem only. Nature and extent of exposure Poisoned aquifers are a regional problem in this part of the world. The process of arsenic poisoning in Bangladesh is due to excessive dependence on groundwater. arsenic in food and agriculture, and to evaluate available knowledge of the effects of irrigating with arsenic-contaminated water on crop production and food safety in Asia. The focus is on Bangladesh, where most studies on arsenic contaminated irrigation water have been carried out. It is also the countryFile Size: KB.

Arsenic in Groundwater: Poisoning and Risk Assessment examines the spatial, quantitative, and qualitative aspects on arsenic poisoning; for instance, using geographical information systems (GIS) to investigate the spatial discontinuity of arsenic-laced water in spatial and temporal dimensions to uncover patterns of variations over scales from. arsenic free water can help the arsenic affected people to get rid of the symptoms of arsenic toxicity. Hence, provision of arsenic free water is urgently needed to mitigate arsenic toxicity and protection of health and well being of rural people living in acute arsenic problem areas of Bangladesh and India.

Arsenic contamination of groundwater is a form of groundwater pollution which is often due to naturally occurring high concentrations of arsenic in deeper levels of is a high-profile problem due to the use of deep tubewells for water supply in the Ganges Delta, causing serious arsenic poisoning to large numbers of people. A study found that over million . The primary Bangladesh project was called Health Effects of Arsenic Longitudinal Study, and known as HEALS. It called for a cohort of 10, people.

The project aims to significantly reduce the quantity of arsenic. The latest statistics indicate that 80% of Bangladesh and an estimated 40 million people are at risk of arsenic poisoning-related diseases because the ground water in these wells is contaminated with arsenic.
