C&EN: Latest News - Arsenic Link To Ancient Migration [cached]

Richard D. Foust Jr., a chemistry professor at Northern Arizona University, thinks that arsenic-laden water in the Montezuma Well, near the valley, could have helped lead to the departure.

Foust and Senanayake don't think that arsenic poisoning itself caused the Sinagua's departure.
Arsenic likely leaches from the pre-Cambrian rock as water moves up from a deep aquifer, Foust told C&EN.This unique ecosystem may have parallels at other arsenic-contaminated sites, he added.

Northern Arizona University chemistry professor Richard Foust has said former local opposition to fluoridation appeared to be devoid of peer-reviewed science.He points to a report of the 1995 World Health Organization indicating currently approved recommendations for fluoride don't pose health risks to people.As for cancer, the report says, "Although there was equivocal evidence of carcinogenicity in male rats, extensive epidemiological studies have shown no evidence of carcinogenicity in humans."

However, the report indicates that fluoride intake from other sources should be considered when setting national standards.Some diet components, for example -- such as tea and fish -- are higher in fluoride than others.
"The dose response relationship for fluoride is very narrow," Foust acknowledged, meaning there's a fine line between helpful and hurtful amounts.
