Another problem with water in Bangladesh is that groundwater is filled with arsenic, which is poisonous. Arsenic is the largest mass poisoning in history, affecting about 30-35 million people in this country. Being exposed to arsenic can lead up to severly damaged integral systems in the human body and could even cause cancer. Even worse, arsenic can lead to death.

~90 percent of the Bengalis use groundwater as a water resource.
~Only 7 percent of the total land that creates the watersheds for the great rivers is in Bangladesh.
