FDA Studying Arsenic Levels in Rice
Could the rice we eat be dangerous? The Food & Drug Administration is looking into new standards of allowable levels of arsenic in the foods we consume.
FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports:
Arsenic is thought to be found in rice in higher levels than most other foods because it’s grown in water on the ground. And while the FDA says they’ve found no evidence that suggests rice is unsafe to eat, they’ve released a partial study of short and long-grain rice, cereals, drinks even rice cakes, showing some levels of cancer-causing arsenic. Consumer Reports released a similar study.
The FDA encourages a diverse diet, and says it won’t draw any conclusions on arsenic levels in rice, or standards the agency should implement until its study is complete by the end of the year.
