Now we find that our own government regulators are allowing farmers to use arsenic in our food…I would have assumed it was coming from China but wait until you read where in the US this is coming from below.
“Toxic, cancer-causing arsenic found in rice products — even organic rice milk
(NaturalNews) As a follow-up to an investigation it conducted earlier in the year on arsenic levels in popular fruit juices (http://www.consumerreports.
After conducting tests on more than 200 samples of rice products, which included dry rice, infant cereals, hot cereals, ready-to-eat cereals, rice cakes and crackers, rice flour, rice drinks, rice syrup, and rice vinegar, Consumer Reports investigators found that every single sample had detectable levels of both organic and inorganic arsenic, the latter of which has been shown to cause cancer. In most cases, the worst offenders were rice products made from rice grown in Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, and Texas.
“In virtually every product tested, we found measurable amounts of total arsenic in its two forms,” says Consumer Reports. “We found significant levels of inorganic arsenic, which is a carcinogen, in almost every product category, along with organic arsenic, which is less toxic but still of concern.”
