Drinking of groundwater elevated in arsenic today remains the main source of exposure to arsenic for all villagers of India
and similarly affected countries draining the Himalayas. With time, the concern for arsenic and other contaminates in
soil and groundwater and its transfer to human through agriculture and other means has gained much concern. It has been
learnt that the concentration and the uptake rate of toxic elements and components are increasing day by day in crops. As the
?green revolution? in India was achieved by ?Boro? or winter season rice cultivation with the intensive use of irrigation and
pesticides, lead to massive arsenic poisoning in Indo-gangetic plains and pesticide contamination in soil, water and food in
all over India. The dangers of acute pesticide poisoning are also well known to Indian farmers, but the need is to highlight the
chronic exposure that can cause many diseases. High frequency of occurrence of the pesticides was noted and is a matter of
concern since pesticides are known to accumulate in living organisms and so even low levels of intakes may reach toxic levels.
Our present research involves, source, effect and management of arsenic and pesticides in environment.
