Ar­senic, a dis­ease

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

HAYAT SHAD

Ar­senic is a poi­sonous chem­i­cal that is es­pe­cially used to kill in­sects and weeds. Fur­ther­more, ar­senic is one of the largest tribu­la­tions of our coun­try, as it is caus­ing deadly threat to hu­man lives. More­over, it is found in drink­ing wa­ter be­ing supplied to the peo­ple. Even tube well wa­ter is not free from this haz­ardous chem­i­cal.

Peo­ple are suf­fer­ing nu­mer­ous health prob­lems due to the poi­sonous wa­ter, pol­luted by ar­senic, thus ending up in var­i­ous wa­ter-borne dis­eases. I re­quest the govern­ment to re­solve the prob­lem, badly af­fect­ing the health of the peo­ple. —Kech, Balochis­tan
