A study using juvenile swine as test animals was performed to measure the gastrointestinal absorption of arsenic from an ASARCO and a Hawaii soil sample. The ASARCO material was collected from a stockpile of soil from a former smelter site near Tacoma, Washington. The Hawaii material was collected from a school garden located near Keaau town, Hawaii that had been impacted by arsenic associated with herbicide use in former sugar mill plantation land.
