I've had a bunch of questions from a member of the public referred to me regarding arsenic exposure from chromated copper arsenic-treated wood. A brief literature search showed me that there=E2=80™s quite a bit of data and zillions of papers out there, but much of it is not quite what I'm looking for. 

Is anyone aware of a good reference, preferably a review, that discusses CCA wood exposure hazards, particularly routes of exposure and toxicokinetics in both occupational use and in children? It would help short-circuit my lit search considerably.

Thanks in advance.
