Peripheral Arterial Disease and Its Association With Arsenic Exposure and Metabolism in the Strong Heart Study.

Abstract

At high levels, inorganic arsenic exposure is linked to peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and cardiovascular disease. To our knowledge, no prior study has evaluated the association between low-to-moderate arsenic exposure and incident PAD by ankle brachial index (ABI). We evaluated this relationship in the Strong Heart Study, a large population-based cohort… (More)
