Do You Know What’s in Your Chicken and Rice?


I heard about this earlier this summer, and now it’s been verified by Consumer Reports, who tested 200 rice products: there’s arsenic at alarming levels in our rice, even some organic rice, and farmers feed it to chickens – on purpose!!!

You gotta read it to believe it:

Current recommendations are to limit rice intake to 2 servings per week for adults, 1.25 servings per week for children.

I think what was even more surprising to me was that this is primarily an issue caused by U.S. farming practices.
