A soak cycle at Inframat, and pollutants come out in the wash

Abstract:
Millions of villagers in Bangladesh were exposed to unhealthy levels of arsenic in drinking water in the 1980s and 90s after the naturally occurring poison seeped from bedrock into groundwater supplying wells. After a decade of exposure, the Bangladeshis began to show skin abnormalities and other signs of toxicity, including cancers. The contamination still plagues Bangladesh, India and several South Asian nations.
