5th INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON ARSENIC IN THE ENVIRONMENT As2014
Buenos Aires, Argentina,May 11–16, 2014
Arsenic has been an issue of concern in last decades because of the serious incidence on human health coming from ingestion of water with small amounts of arsenic for prolonged periods. Around 100 million people are at risk in Asia and 14 million people are potentially affected in Latin America.
In 2014, one century of the discovery of arsenicosis in Bell Ville (Córdoba Province, Argentina) will be commemorated. For this reason, the organization of the next 5th International Congress in the Latin American region is considered relevant, with the title “As2014, One Century of the Discovery of Arsenicosis in America (1914-2014)”
