For a few years now, our knowing of the somatotrophic and reproduc­ tive axes has developed basically independently, either fields of analysis attaining a hugely complicated, even supposing faraway from whole, point of lower than­ status. alongside the way in which, despite the fact that, it grew to become obvious that during a few situations the reproductive and somatotrophic axes might be inter­ based.

However, the research should be comprehensive drawing samples from all types of tube-well sources without bias. More operational research is needed to recommend appropriate arsenic removal techniques at the small community and household levels. Research may be focused on those techniques, which are already approved by other countries. However, research to develop innovative and locally appropriate technologies should also be considered. As non-symptomatic cases as well as non-exposed cohorts using non-contaminated tube-wells sharing the same aquifer showed high concentrations of arsenic in hair, nails or both, a carefully designed cohort study should be conducted to determine the relative risk of chronic arsenic exposure.

4. District-wide arsenic contamination level In total, about 14,932 samples were tested (Fig. 1 and Table 1) by different agencies in 20 Terai districts as of May 2002 (Shrestha and Maskey, 2002, Tandukar, 2001, Personal communication with DWSS, RWSSSP and NEWAH, 2002). More than 90% of the samples were tested in the ENPHO laboratory, Kathmandu. The samples were analyzed through Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer by using the Continuous Hydride Figure 1.
