I have a professor who does a lot of work on naturally occurring arsenic levels in soil and drinking water. One of the highest areas in the country is in New Hampshire, where he wanted to go and do studies on blood levels in residents to see how much they are absorbing from the water but decided on Maine. Why? Because
"have you ever seen a NH license plate? It says "live free or die" and they live by that! when you ask them to participate, they say no!"
See! I'm NOT the only person who noticed!!
