Dangerous arsenic in brown rice: Not just apple juice, says researchers


First it was apple juice, now organic brown rice has been found to be contaminated with arsenic.

The Environmental News network reports that Professor Brian Jackson, director of the Trace Element Analysis Core Facility at Dartmouth College published an article which states that high levels of arsenic are present in organic brown rice and brown rice syrup.

Brown rice syrup is seen by many as a healthy alternative to high fructose corn syrup and can be found in many foods, including baby formula, organic health bars, and high-energy foods usually consumed by athletes.
