Project Summary (1995-2000)

This project continues to study the premise that bladder cancer may be the most significant risk posed by exposure to drinking water containing arsenic. This project is providing data from a number of arsenic-exposed human populations that is of immediate usefulness in risk assessment and risk management decision making. It has been previously documented by this research group that arsenic may be one of the most important environmental carcinogens in the United States today. It is a common soil and water contaminant at Superfund sites and a common drinking water contaminant in the western United States.
