Columbia SRP paper selected for "NIEHS Papers of the Year" award.

The paper, "Arsenic exposure from drinking water, and all-cause chronic-disease mortalities in Bangladesh (HEALS): a prospective cohort study" appeared in The Lancet, 24-30 July. Its authors include Columbia SRP scientists: Marie Argos, Yu Chen, Faruque Parvez, Vesna Slavkovich, Alexander van Geen, Joseph Graziano, and Habibul Ahsan.

The paper is based on the SRP funded study of whether chronic and recent changes in arsenic exposure through drinking water are associated with all-cause and chronic disease mortalities in a Bangladesh population. The authors note significant associations between mortality rates and arsenic exposure through drinking water. A total of twenty-one papers were selected from across all of NIEHS for this honor.
