In this issue, Moon and colleagues report results from the Strong Heart Study, documenting an association between urinary arsenic levels and cardiovascular disease. The editorialists discuss the study and ask questions about the effect of this common exposure not only from water but from foods, such as grains, and about populations in which arsenic exposure presents the highest risks.
