Manchester Policy Week: Poisoning the world’s poor: how can we reduce their exposure to arsenic in water & food?
Over one hundred million of the world’s poorer people, notably in Bangladesh and India, are exposed to arsenic. They ingest arsenic through drinking water obtained from contaminated wells - and also by eating rice, which naturally concentrates arsenic. Have we inadvertently contributed to this situation?
What can and should UK individuals,government and non-governmental aid organisations do to help? How does this issue impact us in the UK?
