Arsenic alarm in Bihar villages

On Sunday I posted the article, World facing 'arsenic timebomb. You can read it by following this link. Arsenic

I found a new story dealing with arsenic levels.

Arsenic alarm in Bihar villages

Arsenic levels have risen to alarming levels in many districts of the north-eastern Indian state of Bihar, officials say.

A state government survey has revealed that arsenic levels in up to 12 districts of the state of Bihar are now a threat to life.

The state capital, Patna, is among the affected areas.

Reports say villagers in some districts are suffering from bone deformations and a variety of skin complaints.
