Paragraph: Arsenic Problem

Water is an important element of the environment. Man cannot live without it. So, its another name is life. But polluted water is very dangerous for life. At present arsenic contamination in drinking water is one of the severe problems of Bangladesh. Arsenic is a very poisonous white compound of frail element. This element is found out largely in the tube well water of 59 districts of our country. This polluted water causes many serious diseases in the human body such as arsenicosis, sores, stomach troubles, gangrain, etc. B-arsenic is most poisonous. About 24 millions people of Bangladesh are endangered for it. People should be conscious of it. We can get rid of it through dinking arsenic-free water. In this regard, deep tube wells should be set up in large number. Immediate steps must be taken by the government in order to check this pollution such as research and analysis of source of water, investigation of the possibility of an alternative source of safe water, marking of dangerous tube wells, arrangements of proper treatment of arsenic patients etc. Above all, people should be made aware of the dangerous effects of using aresenic contaminated water. Vitamin A, B, C and E are effective for arsenicosis. So, people must eat the foods containing these elements. It has been seen that those who eat a balanced diet containing fish and vegetables, are less affected with arsenicosis. The initial treatment of arsenicosis is to drink aresenic-free water and eat balanced and nutritious food. And the patients with arsenicosis must consult to skilled doctors for proper treatment. And people must find out a source of water which is arsenic free
