Arsenic In Water And Its Different Forms

Arsenic is all around us.  That's not as happy as "love is all around," but it's true… arsenic is abundant in the earth's surface, and it often finds its way into drinking water. 

But the KIND of arsenic can make a big difference, and a University of Oregon scientist says arsenic can cycle between toxic and less-toxic forms. 

Meaning we might be able to make it less troublesome in water.  The study focused on a number of wells in the Creswell area.

Professor Qusheng Jin joins us.
