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.

Firstly I don't eat white rice at all at any time because it has no nutritional value. I have been using Lundberg Country Wild out of California which is very good but I'm going to fire off an e-mail to see what their position is. I doubt very much that we will find foods that don't contain some percentage of trace due to our industrialized society. Perhaps I will just buy wild rice from the local health food stores from now on. I don't know where the wild rice is from but rest assured I will ask.
