Prenatal arsenic exposure may lead to diseases later in life; bladder cancer has been known to develop up to 20 years after exposure. Pollution has made groundwater contamination of arsenic a worldwide problem that affects people, crops, and livestock. Many of the foods that we eat i.e. plants and animals are contaminated with arsenic because of exposure to arsenic-contaminated water. Rice and rice products i.e. organic brown rice syrup, in particular, can contain high levels of arsenic. Nutritional supplements that contain ingredients from China are also at risk for arsenic contamination. Arsenic is a carcinogen and exposure can lead to cancer and other toxic health effects, including cardiovascular disease, neurological problems, and developmental disorders, and 17) Manganese is a trace element that occurs naturally in soil, water, and plants. Several studies have linked excessive manganese exposure and neurological disorders in children. It has been linked to lower scores in math, diminished intellectual function, and ADHD. Metallic manganese is used primarily in steel production to improve hardness, stiffness, and strength. It is also used in carbon steel, stainless steel, and high-temperature steel, along with cast iron and super-alloys.
