How is it used?
Arsenic compounds are mainly used to preserve wood. They are also used to make insecticides and weed killers. Copper and lead ores also contain small amounts of arsenic.

What are the health effects?
Inorganic arsenic is a human poison. High levels of inorganic arsenic in food or water can be fatal and a high level is 60 parts of arsenic per million parts of food or water (60 ppm). Arsenic damages many tissues including nerve, stomach, intestines, and skin. Breathing high levels can give you a sore throat and irritated lungs and long term exposure to inorganic arsenic may lead to a darkening of the skin and the appearance of small warts on the palms, soles, and torso. Additional extended exposure to arsenic via drinking-water can cause cancer of the skin, lungs, urinary bladder, and kidney, as well as other skin changes such as pigmentation changes and thickening.

Is there any harm from drinking and bathing in contaminated water?
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets limits on the amount of arsenic that industrial sources can release. EPA has set a limit of 0.5 parts per billion (ppb) for arsenic in drinking water.

Lead

How is it used?
The largest use for lead is in storage batteries in cars and other motor vehicles. Lead may be used as a pure metal, alloyed with other metals, or as a chemical compound. Most lead today is obtained from recovery of recycled scrap and those batteries.

Human activities, such as lead mining and smelting operations and manufacturing and use of lead products (e.g., leaded gasoline, lead-based paint), have resulted in the contamination of many industrial and residential areas with lead. Additionally, cosmetics contain lead notable amounts. Typical sources of lead in drinking water comes from aging lead based water pipes or solder used in building construction before 1978 in most states.

What are the health effects?
Short term effects: Lead can cause a variety of adverse health effects when people are exposed to it for relatively short periods of time. These effects may include interference with red blood cell chemistry, delays in normal physical and mental development in babies and young children, slight deficits in the attention span, hearing, and learning abilities of children, and slight increases in the blood pressure of some adults.

Long-term effects: Lead has the potential to cause the following effects from a lifetime exposure of stroke and kidney disease; cancer. Lead may also cause irreversible neurological damage as well as renal disease, cardiovascular effects, and reproductive toxicity.
