I started looking at Google to find something on pressure treated wood.  I know the EPA has decided that we shouldn't use CCA and has mandated that it be taken off of the shelf but all the info I have heard was second hand from other folks.  So, I typed CCA in Google and was amazed to find that I would have to wade through so many uses of the acronym looking for my target.

Canadian Construction Association, Centre Canadien d'Architecture
Coastal Conservation Association, Career College Association
Certified Crop Adviser, Car Club of America
Common Component Architecture, Canadian Cat Association
Canadian Curling Association, Canadian Council of Archives
Computer Corporation of America, Community College of Aurora
Christianson Capital Advisors, Cyber Cat Association
Canadian Center for Architecture, computability and Complexity in Analysis
Colon Cancer Alliance, Canadian Communication Association
Corrections Corporation of America

Then, about five pages down I found the first occurance of CCA as I know it, chromated copper arsenate.

After all the talk I've heard about leaching of Arsenic into the ground, I find it interesting that the EPA, according to this report, is withdrawing CCA "just because" (if I may paraphrase).  

It is an interesting report, but, if you don't want to read it, the gist of my "just because" comment comes from this quote from the article.
"Although the Agency has not concluded that there is unreasonable risk to the public from these products, we do believe that any reduction in exposure to arsenic is desirable.
