DESCRIPTION: This project explores hypotheses concerning the impact of exposure to arsenic in food (rice) and water on cardiovascular diseases, chronic non-malignant lung diseases, and diabetes mellitus. The work involves newly collected data from an arsenic-exposed study population of 35,000 study participants in Bangladesh, as well as previously collected data from populations in the United States (AZ, CO, ND, OK, SD), Taiwan, and China.
