VKM_NO 03/05/16 Dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic in the Norwegian population. Norwegian adults do not have specific eating patterns leading to a different dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic than other European adult population.

VKM_NO 03/05/16 Dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic in the Norwegian population

That is the outcome of an assessment from the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM). The Norwegian Food Safety Authority (NFSA) requested a statement from the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM) on the dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic in the Norwegian population. VKM was asked to comment on the following: FOOD_DTU_DK 12/04/16 Facts about inorganic arsenic in food. Inorganic arsenic is carcinogenic according to the World Health Organization, WHO.

FOOD_DTU_DK 12/04/16 Facts about inorganic arsenic in food

Rice and rice products are a significant source of inorganic arsenic in Denmark and the intake is so high that the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, assesses that the intake should be lowered. Consumers can reduce their risk by eating a varied diet. The National Food Institute has gathered existing knowledge about the risks of inorganic arsenic in food. FOOD_DTU_DK 12/04/16 New method to determine the content of inorganic arsenic in foodstuffs. A new European standard method to determine the content of inorganic arsenic in foodstuffs has been developed at the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark.

FOOD_DTU_DK 12/04/16 New method to determine the content of inorganic arsenic in foodstuffs

Inorganic arsenic is carcinogenic according to the World Health Organization, WHO. Being able to accurately measure the substance in different foods is necessary to ensure that the content is below the maximum levels recently set by the European Commission to protect consumers. TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF DENMARK - 2013 - Thèse en ligne : Stabilization of arsenic and chromium polluted soils using water treatment residues. EFSA 06/03/14 EFSA lowers dietary exposure estimates for inorganic arsenic.

The latest analysis gives lower estimates of dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic than those reported by EFSA in 2009.

EFSA 06/03/14 EFSA lowers dietary exposure estimates for inorganic arsenic

The accuracy of the estimates has been improved by using consumption and occurrence data that were not available in 2009 and a more detailed classification of foods.

IJERPH, Vol. 10, 2013: Case-Control Study of Arsenic in Drinking Water and Lung Cancer in California and Nevada

At lower concentrations, the risks are unknown. We enrolled 196 lung cancer cases and 359 controls matched on age and gender from western Nevada and Kings County, California in 2002–2005. After adjusting for age, sex, education, smoking and occupational exposures, odds ratios for arsenic concentrations ≥85 µg/L (median = 110 µg/L, mean = 173 µg/L, maximum = 1,460 µg/L) more than 40 years before enrollment were 1.39 (95% CI = 0.55–3.53) in all subjects and 1.61 (95% CI = 0.59–4.38) in smokers. Although odds ratios were greater than 1.0, these increases may have been due to chance given the small number of subjects exposed more than 40 years before enrollment.
