Periyalvar, in complete awe, immediately rushed to his house and brought the garland that Andal had worn. Andal thence ld her father about her beautiful dreams in which the Lord came on an elephant to wed her. Marriage happened exactly as stated in vaaranam aayiram Her dreams were completeprediction, prophecy,forethinking and reality. Basically the bride, Andal, was thence taken to the Srirangam temple where she entered the sanctum sanctorum and was ushered into the Lord’s presence. Poems describe how Andal and Lord Sri Vishnu got married as pointed out by customs and rituals. As indicated by the American Medical Association, a fact sheet published on the state health department’s website said urine and hair arsenic tests are difficult to interpret and, are unreliable.
Conforming to the publication, another good way to investigate arsenic exposure is to test drinking water.
Arsenic contamination ain’t confined to Weston’s borders.
Stamford’s health department detected arsenic in 24 of 227 well water tests performed since The state DPH has also found the heavy metal in drinking wells across Connecticut, most recently in Pomfret and Somers, said state epidemiologist Brian Toal. Penna and Wilson live in really similar wooded neighborhood of rural Weston, where a lot of the town’s 10000 residents use private well water. Besides, the Weston Field Club, about four miles away, recently tested positive for elevated arsenic levels, said General Manager Jeff Champion.
Despite the fact that the heavy metal was linked to serious health problems, the state has not investigated the scope or severity of arsenic contamination. It’s not known how prevalent arsenic is in residential well water, for the most part there’re an estimated 400000 private wells in Connecticut serving approximately 526700 people. Another raw water test performed a month later by Stratfordbased Complete Environmental Testing Inc. Furthermore, the water sampled from Penna’s kitchen sink and analyzed by Aqua Environmental contained arsenic in amounts equal to 022 milligrams per liter, more than twice the acceptable health limit. Fact, wanted to know if the metal was present in her body after years of drinking her well water, penna installed a water filtration system.
She consulted a few doctors and xicologists but had a hard time finding someone who could test her for arsenic poisoning.
She decided to test her well water after other Weston mothers reported similar hair loss.
Penna, a mother of three young children whose home was built in the 1960s, moved to Weston eight years ago. Her oncethick hair has since fallen out in clumps she did actually fill a plastic sandwich bag with light brown strands collected from the drain after one shower.

Needless to say, state Geologist Margaret Thomas said naturallyoccurring arsenic is found in rocks that contain iron sulfites, that are prevalent in New England.
Health officials believe arsenic enters private well water from the surrounding bedrock.
Earlier this year the public health department updated its fact sheet, Arsenic in Private Drinking Water Wells, that it sent to local health officials and posted online.
State health officials are looking to boost the public’s awareness of arsenic contamination, Toal said. Did you know that the state public health department recommends homeowners with high levels of arsenic in their well water stop drinking from the tap until they’ve installed remediation systems on their homes. Homeowners should consult a water service professional to determine which method should work best for their house, Toal said, metal oxide filters or reverse osmosis procedures are typically used to treat arsenic contamination. DeFalco, president of the North Stamford Concerned Citizens for the Environment nonprofit, was an early advocate for municipal and state intervention in 2009 after the carcinogenic pesticides chlordane and dieldrin were discovered in North Stamford drinking wells. I’m sure you heard about this. Stamford’s public testing program, that has tested more than 1000 of the city’s estimated 5000 private drinking wells over the last year, has helped local and state officials learn more about pesticide contamination and inspired other testing across Connecticut.
Did you know that the Weston mothers suffered similar symptoms. After shelling out thousands of dollars on blood tests. Homeowners won’t know to test their wells for arsenic if public health officials don’t alert them, Penna and Wilson said. When it issued a news release recommending all homeowners test their well water every five years for arsenic and uranium, the department didn’t even recommend statewide arsenic testing until last week. So state DPH does not require private well owners to test their water for arsenic and identical known toxins, like pesticides, copper and radon. Anyways, there’s a whole list of other contaminants Penna has yet to check her well for. In the meantime, Penna said she plans to test her water quarterly. Her sister, who lives in Newtown, has already tested her home’s water and discovered her radon levels are 18000 picocuries per liter more than three times the ‘staterecommended’ limit of 5000 picocuries per liter.
State requires tests of private drinking water only once when the well is installed and arsenic isn’t on the list of contaminants laboratories are mandated to test for under the state Public Health Code. Basically the code requires new wells to be tested for tal coliform, nitrate, nitrite, sodium, chloride, iron, manganese, hardness, turbidity, pH, sulfate, apparent color and odor. Weston residents rushed to test their own well water after hearing of Penna and Wilson’s findings, and 104 homeowners have reported their results to the Westport Weston Health Department, Director Mark Cooper said. About 30 the wells percent tested positive for arsenic in levels above the acceptable health limit. Of course with her hair sample testing positive for 16 micrograms per gram well above the recommended limit of 15 micrograms per gram, the results revealed high arsenic levels. She eventually visited a Westport natural pathologist, who sent a sample of her hair to a Georgia laboratory for analysis. It turned out arsenic, in levels more than twice the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended health limit of 01 milligrams per liter, had been flowing from the two women’s taps and they’re not alone.
State has done little research on the source or location of well water contaminants like arsenic, and requires the testing of private drinking water only once when a brand new well is installed. Actually the Connecticut Department of Public Health has received numerous reports in recent years of pesticide and heavy metal contamination in residential drinking water across the state. Arsenic was also historically used as a pesticide, mainly in apple orchards. Even though it must be possible to do a geographic analysis depending on geologic mapping, the state has not studied the location or extent of arseniccontaining bedrock, Thomas said. Essentially, assuaging property value fears and changing the way local and state health officials approach water contamination would not happen in one day, said Stamford resident Karen DeFalco. For example, ed Meyer, D Guilford, said he would support expanding the list of contaminants that laboratories are required to test for when new wells are installed. State Sen. General Assembly’s Environmental Committee chairman said he is open to exploring the significant problem. Mandating more frequent testing of private drinking water will be an ugher bill to pass.
