The link between the highly toxic arsenic in drinking water and a growing cancer toll in the United States is “unsupported” by scientific evidence, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has concluded.
A new study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives found that arsenic is linked to a variety of cancers, including bladder cancer, prostate cancer and ovarian cancer.
“This new study demonstrates that arsenic-associated cancers are the result of a combination of multiple factors,” said Dr. Paul E. Dabrowski, a professor of epidemiology and environmental health sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health and a lead author of the study.
“There’s a lot of evidence that drinking arsenic poses a number of risks, including arsenic-related cancers.”
The study was conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) in partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the U-M Health System.
The study found that, in the U!
State of Michigan, a number in the 10,000s increased the risk of prostate cancer by 16 percent for every 10 milligrams of arsenic in the drinking water in the area.
That risk increased to about 30 percent in the state’s northern and central regions.
The lead author, Dr. Jennifer K. M. Coughlin, an epidemiologist at the Center for Health and Environmental Justice, said that the link between drinking arsenic and prostate cancer is “very strong.”
The NIEHS found that the incidence of bladder cancer increased by 40 percent among men living in communities with a high concentration of arsenic and increased by 80 percent among women in communities that have high concentrations of arsenic.
Dr. Croughlin said that in addition to the bladder cancer risk, the study also found an increase in prostate cancer among men who drank arsenic-contaminated water and an increased risk of ovarian cancer in men who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Dr K.M. Caughey, a cancer epidemiologist and associate professor of environmental health at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, told Fox News that the research shows that arsenic, even in the smallest amount, has a high risk for cancer.
She said that even when it comes to arsenic, drinking too much of it could actually increase the risk for developing cancer.
She said that when you drink too much, you’re going to accumulate toxins and it can cause cancer.
And the problem with drinking too little is, you know, the arsenic is toxic.
And so we know that it’s really harmful.
Dr Caughee said that because arsenic is concentrated in water and it’s in the groundwater and we’re drinking it in a lot more water than we should be, that there is a huge impact on people’s health.
We know that when we drink too little, we’re going, in fact, to get sick.
Dr Eileen L. Mueck, a lead researcher for the study, said the results do not disprove the health risks associated with drinking arsenic.
But, she added, “it does point to a need for the public to be aware that the public health message is still that arsenic poses an elevated risk of cancer.”
The U.K. also found a link between elevated arsenic in water, arsenic in blood, and prostate, ovarian, and pancreatic cancers.
In the U., researchers found a 10 percent increase in the risk in men living near large concentrations of the toxic chemical in drinking waters.
A 10 percent risk for men who lived near arsenic concentrations in drinking fountains was found in a study from the University College London.
Study also found that an additional 11 percent of men living close to a concentration of 1.0 micrograms per liter of arsenic increased their risk of bladder and ovarian cancers.
Researchers also found the risk was highest in the Northern and Central regions of the U.; in other words, those areas that have the highest concentrations of drinking water with the highest levels of arsenic are also the areas with the greatest risk for prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, and other cancers.
Dr Muell said that drinking water contamination is a concern because arsenic can leach into drinking water.
And, she said, the researchers found that in areas with higher arsenic concentrations, drinking water also had a higher risk of cancers.
But it is not the only way arsenic can increase your risk for a cancer, Dr Caugher said.
She added that, as a person, you can reduce your exposure to arsenic by using products and water filters that filter arsenic out of the water.
Dr Dabbowski said that his team is continuing to look at the health impacts of arsenic on people, including drinking water, as part of the public-health response to the health hazards posed by arsenic.
He said that although the U!’s findings are very strong, the results are not enough
