Rice isn’t Nice

Rice with a side of rat poison?

The FDA found that the average levels of inorganic arsenic (RAT POISON) ranged from 2.6 to 7.2 micrograms of inorganic arsenic per serving of rice. So if you serve your family rice on a regular basis, you are slowly poisoning them over a long period of time.

Yes, I said rat poison. FDA recently issued what was portrayed by some as a reassuring update on the levels of arsenic in rice and rice products. The FDA’s takeaway message is basically that we should vary our diet, and refrain from daily rice consumption.

I don’t know about you, but I didn’t find that reassuring at all! The FDA only addresses the short term effects, saying it won’t kill you right away. I’m certain the U.S. rice industry was very pleased that they did not address the long term results of daily inorganic arsenic consumption.

The rice product with the highest level of inorganic arsenic per serving was a hot/ready-to-eat rice bran cereal, which was found to have 30 micrograms per serving of inorganic arsenic. America is the biggest consumer of hot/ready-to-eat rice bran cereal. The way the U.S. rice industry treats or processes grains is much worse than other countries.
