The health status of populations exposed to arsenic through drinking water was determined by a mailed questionnaire.
Participants were selected from three communities located in Nevada with 1977 tap water arsenic levels of approximately 0.1 mg/l and one California community with 1977 levels around 0.39 mg/l. The questionnaire responses were obtained in 1979 from the four exposed communities and compared to those of a Wyoming community whose tap water levels of arsenic were less than 0.001 mg/l in 1979.
No difference in health status for gastrointestinal, neurological, musculoskeletal, circulatory and skin disorders was found.
