ARSENIC SERIES 4
The Health Effects Monitoring Program, compared levels of arsenic in participants’ urine and toenails to a set of reference levels. The reference levels are used to compare populations and are not based on toxic effects.
If your levels are above the reference level, it only means your concentration was higher than 95% of other Canadians.
Current study results show that Yellowknife area residents are not at risk of health effects at the arsenic levels measured in their urine and toenails. To find out more visit ykhemp.ca
