Arriaza B (2005) Arseniasis
as an Environmental Hypothetical Explanation for the Origin of the Oldest Artificial Mummification Practice in the World.
Previously the condition was described as arseniasis
, arsenism, arsenicism, etc.
They also suffered from arseniasis and occupational diseases like external auditory exostosis, and osteoarthrosis (Allison 1989; Arriaza 1995a; Arriaza, Allison and Standen 1984; Aufderheide 2003; Aufderheide and Rodriguez-Martin 1998; Boston and Arriaza 2009; Byrne et al.
Moreover, food and water poisoning through arseniasis, a natural condition still present in the zone, affected population throughout the whole history of the Chinchorro, thus it may have also contributed to the apparent Chinchorro process of cultural transformation.
Alternatively, environmental factors including inadequate nutrition and arseniasis
(Arriaza 2005) or other locally prevalent infections (Aufderheide et al.
is a plausible environmental hypothesis to explain the origin of the Chinchorro's unique mortuary practice and infant mummification.
