There are plenty of horror stories about arsenic and tales about using this natural chemical to poison others by placing it in food, but it is often arsenic alters our health in subtler ways. In November of 2015, a study was published in Environmental Health Perspectives linking respiratory complications in babies to arsenic exposure while in the womb.
This test was conducted on over 400 pregnant, New Hampshire women who had private wells. After a year-long study following these newborns infections and respiratory system problems according to surveys completed by their mothers, each child was gaged by how often they were sick and the severity of their sicknesses.
A connection between babies exposed to higher levels of arsenic in the womb were more likely to develop certain kinds of infections, and might in turn increase a child’s likelihood of developing further respiratory conditions or allergic diseases.
