Breakthrough technology removes arsenic from groundwater


There's more to H2O than meets the eye. Life-threatening amounts of heavy metals like arsenic can go undetected in drinking water, ultimately destroying the health of entire communities. The most acute exposures are witnessed in countries like India and Bangladesh, where people show signs of arsenic poisoning, or arsenicosis. Arsenic poisoning can cause painful lesions, diabetes, cancer, blood vessel diseases and gangrene, forcing some to undergo amputation or be ostracized from their village.
