Arsenic in drinking water
Arsenic is a substance found in rocks and soil that occurs naturally. People can be exposed to many forms of arsenic, and arsenic is broadly grouped into 2 categories:
- organic (meaning that it is combined with carbon)
- inorganic (meaning it is not combined with carbon)
Organic arsenic, such as that found in fish, is considered safe. Inorganic arsenic is not.
