Arsenic is a chemical element considered to be a heavy metal. Arsenic is typically used in pesticides, rodenticides, weed killers, paint and wood preservatives.
Arsenic can also be found as a contaminant in food and water sources. Shellfish and other seafood, as well as fruits, vegetables, and rice; are the foods most commonly contaminated. Arsenic poisoning typically occurs as a result of industrial exposure, from contaminated wine or illegally distilled spirits.
