Arsenic in Rice: What can you do?

From Consumers Union policy & action from consumer reports

Consumer Reports latest investigation has found troubling levels of arsenic in many of the 200 rice products we tested, everything from brown rice to infant cereal – even some popular name-brand cereals.

Since the arsenic we found in these products could lead to increased cancer risks, it’s time health officials hear your concerns – and get serious about dealing with arsenic in our food!

The FDA must set limits on arsenic in our food and drink, much like EPA does for our drinking water.
