    Respectfully, the article is BS. They won't even report any concentrations actually measured. There are lots of vegetables particularly tuber types like radishes that collect human disposed arsenic AND natural deposits. You very well could have arsenic veggies (even well water) on your land. The good news in nearly all cases low concentrations of arsenic present no health risk. Furthemore, the human body easily develops immunity to this element......plenty of documented cases of spouse poisoning other with too low dose of arsenic and upping it over 8x the lethal dose without killing. If you are truly worried about high concentrations of arsenic never ever breath in ciggerate smoke.
