Arsenic in Rice Alarms

Bad news for rice lovers. Consumer Reports is set to release a study revealing that about 60 rice products tested positive for inorganic arsenic. The tests were done on everything from bulk rice to baby food. Inorganic arsenic has been linked to bladder, lung, and skin cancer. The FDA will also announce a plan to rid rice of the dangerous toxin. It’s recommended that people avoid rice from Texas, Louisiana, and Missouri, but rice from Asia is fine.
