Bioaccessibility of arsenic

Measuring the bioaccessibility of arsenic in soil at former fruit orchards

Since the late 19th century, lead arsenate has been used as one of the ‘first generation pesticides’. During site investigations, elevated concentrations of arsenic and other metals have been found in the soil at two former orchards. We conducted a health risk assessment and bioaccessibility testing for arsenic to provide more detailed answers regarding potential pollution-related health risks.
