The powers-that-be worldwide decided that a certain level of arsenic is acceptable in drinking water. All water has some arsenic, some places more than others. They don’t want the public to really know, or they pooh pooh the amount as meaningless.

The threshold for how much arsenic is allowed is something they fight about, they won’t/can’t make the limit more strict because there would be a shortage of drinking water to most of the planet. They won’t set one level as safe for the US and a higher level OK for Africa because dats raciss. Instead they set the allowable arsenic level quite high so everybody’s water passes.

If you happen to live in a pocket of the US with naturally high arsenic levels, you = fucked. They won’t/can’t inform you and suggest you get an arsenic filter, because not everyone can afford.

The high arsenic level allowed is for the good of the world (everybody has drinking water) and the bad side effects are collateral damage.

So if you get your water from a city or town, you can ask to see their yearly water analysis (it’s public info). If you have a well, you have to do your own water test to see arsenic & fluoride levels. Yes well water out in the sticks has fluoride and arsenic too.
