Hauling lumber more than 15 years ago was a source as the lumber may have been treated with arsenic. Chickens are dusted with arsenic at some large farms, and trees are sprayed with it at some orchards. Vehicle emissions, smog, coal combustion, mining, prescription drugs, paints, wallpaper, ceramics and contaminated water and foods are usually sources for low-dose chronic poisoning.
