What are the human impacts of Arsenic exposure for the villagers of Kampong Kong, Cambodia?

You are an environmental consultant who has been employed to advise on the severity of human health impacts from high level Arsenic (As) poisoning of groundwater in a Cambodian village:

The data: The levels of Arsenic in drinking water (groundwater) are ~3500ppb (As3+)
The levels of Arsenic in rice for the village of Kampong Kong range between 7ppb – 458ppb, with the average value for rice = 15.8ppb ((As3+)

• Explain how As moves through the environment: source/pathways/receptor, the ‘toxic pathways’ to the villagers.
• For the villagers calculate the total daily intake of Arsenic (water and food).
• Give context to the levels by comparing to other data / case studies.
• Give an overview of the health impacts specifically associated with Arsenic poisoning in groundwater.
• Evaluate the long term health consequences of the villagers to this exposure.
• Makes recommendations as to what can be done to help them.
