Arsenic is a toxic metalloid, naturally occurring in a variety of forms on Earth. Dose-dependent arsenic exposure, through contaminated drinking water and from anthropogenic sources, has been directly linked to oncogenesis, carcinogenesis, contribution to various disease states, and neurotoxicity. Curiously, it has also become one of the most successful therapeutic treatments for acute promyleocytic leukemia.
