Researcher Brian Jackson in NYT on Arsenic in Rice Crackers
Researcher Tracy Punshon Publishes Paper on Measuring Babies' and Pregnant Women's Exposure to Arsenic
The paper in the Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology reports on a Dartmouth study that shows a pregnant woman's placenta can indicate level of arsenic exposure in babies and pregnant women. Coverage in US News & World Report Health and Dartmouth Now.
Technology Transfer Paper Published by Researcher Brian Jackson

Two Papers Published by Dartmouth Researchers in Environmental Health Perspectives
- Blood Pressure Changes in Relation to Arsenic Exposure in a U.S. Pregnancy Cohort reports on a study that is among the first to examine the impact of consumption of inorganic arsenic during pregnancy.
- Findings discussed in the paper Estimated Exposure to Arsenic in Breastfed and Formula-Fed Infants in a United States Cohort "...suggest that breastfed infants have lower arsenic exposure than formula-fed infants, and that both formula powder and drinking water can be sources of exposure for U.S. infants."
