Want to make some quick cash? Buy yourself an RV (they're are really cheap now due to the gas crisis) and paint on the side "(Your Name Here) Arsenic Removal Systems Will Cure Your Diabetes". Then travel around the world like the old-fashioned snake oil salesman and cash in. Think I'm crazy? Well, you should read the newest article about a ridiculous study showing data that links low-level arsenic exposure, possibly from drinking water, with Type 2 diabetes. My favorite part about this AP report is that the second line published (at least in the Boston Globe version) states "the study's limitations make more research necessary". You think? Later on comes a very telling and precautionary statement "the findings raise a chicken-and-egg problem since it's unknown whether diabetes changes the way people metabolize arsenic. It's possible that people with diabetes excrete more arsenic." I got a feeling it is both the chicken and the egg and the Wendys, McDonalds, Twinkies, Doritos and the other 4000 calories a day that truly lead to the Type 2 diabetes. I will stick with that and let the press have a field day trying to put the word out about poor old arsenic. And by the way, when the research is finally done right and it shows that arsenic was a red herring, which it is, there will be very little press telling us all about it.
