Initially consumption of water was considered to be the only source of arsenic ingestion. However, recent studies have pointed out that arsenic intake is not limited to water consumption. In fact, it has infested the entire food chain. Therefore, arsenic consumption is now happening in multiple forms and through diverse avenues. However, the far reaching implications of these additional impact routes are yet to be ascertained. Through literature reviews and in-depth interviews and case studies, we bring forth these additional threats to the already menacing arsenic contamination of groundwater crisis.
