As the Publisher of BANCCA.ORG, the premier online health resource for consumers of CCA pressure treated wood, I would like to thank ArchitectureWeek and the article's author for writing such a well written and informative article. It is important that architects and engineers, as well as construction managers, carpenters and homeowners be made aware of the health hazards associated with exposure to the arsenic in CCA wood. This article has done a good job of explaining this topic in an accurate manner.

If you are interested in learning more about this topic, I invite you to visit our Web site, (, re a vast amount of additional information, some of which was obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request, is available. If you are skeptical about the health hazards of this product, take some time to read the victim's personal stories of injuries- it may change your outlook.

We at BANCCA.ORG look forward to the day when CCA treated wood is no longer available on the market, and has been replaced with safer, less toxic, alternative products. Yes, we have a need for treated wood, but not for toxic treated wood.

Thanks again for your excellent article.
