How to Prevent Arsenic Toxicity


To help reduce your chances of getting arsenic toxicity, take the following steps:

  • If you work with arsenic-treated wood at home, wear a dust mask, gloves, and protective clothing. Do not burn any wood that has been treated with arsenic compounds.
  • If you live in an area with high natural levels of arsenic, use cleaner sources of water (eg, bottled or filtered water) and limit contact with soil. If you have well water, have it tested for a variety of contaminants including arsenic.
