There are an estimated 70 million people currently at risk for arsenic poisoning in the the Bangladesh area, resulting in a major health crisis and need for clean water. The effects of Arsenic poisoning are gruesome, and take effect after many years of drinking arsenic contaminated water. Arsenic is not just a Bangladesh problem — it can be found in drinking water supplies around the world. Maine, Massachusetts, Texas, and half a dozen other states have all had arsenic contamination problems, says Joseph Graziano, a professor of environmental health sciences and pharmacology at Columbia University. Bangladesh is the most affected country by arsenic poisoning through drinking water. The Bangladeshi government limits arsenic concentration in water to 50 μg/L, which is 5 times more than the WHO recommended limit.

Adeel : Policy Dimensions of the Arsenic Pollution Problem in Bangladesh 271 indicate that more than 35 million people are potentially at risk from drinking contaminated water (Smith et al., 2000). This indeed brings the problem to a catastrophic scale that has not been experienced by humankind before. It is “ the largest mass poisoning of a population in history ,” the World Health Organisation had said back in 2010. Now, a Human Rights Watch survey has found that arsenic contaminated water in Bangladesh is still drunk by 20 million people, exposing them to one of the most toxic chemical elements known to humankind. According to a report by the WHO, “Bangladesh is grappling with the largest mass poisoning of a population in history” due to arsenic contamination in groundwater, with an estimated 35 to 77 million people at risk.

Arsenic in Bangladesh sediments will not be released from FeOOH unless organic matter is present to drive microbial reduction (or release phosphate for competitive exchange), so we postulate that it is the distribution of organic matter, particularly peat, in the aquifer sediments that is the primary control on arsenic pollution.

Globally, it contributed to UNICEF's development of policies relating to the investigation and mitigation of arsenic contamination. 2010-11-30 The contaminated groundwater is another source of arsenic.

At present arsenic contamination in drinking water is one of the severe problems of Bangladesh. It is estimated that of the 121 million inhabitants of Bangladesh 35 million to 77 million are at the risk of arsenic.
