Abstract
The carcinogenic effects of arsenic are reviewed. Included are the history of observations since the 1820's among exposed workers, attempts at producing experimental arsenic (7440382) cancer, recent epidemiological data implicating arsenic as the cause of respiratory cancer. More arsenic carcinogenesis studies are recommended, possibly with primates, to clarify doubtful and uncertain findings as to its role in the etiology of cancer.
