"Arsenic is naturally occurring in soil" is a lie. Arsenic is in soil because it is in pesticides and arsenic in pesticides stays in the soil for up to 50 years PER APPLICATION.

That is not the same thing as naturally occurring. We have poisoned the soil sooooo much that it will be many generations before there is ANY clean arsenic-free soil.
Yet, farmers and food manufacturers keep upping arsenic levels doubling down on the amount of arsenic in our food supply to the point that there are millions of people having serious medical problems such as miscarriages, deaths, Cancer patients, Autism, mental illnesses, Fibromyalgia, (swiss cheese bones) Osteoporosis, Arthritis, and degenerative spine disease, Asthma (prolonged, repeating Anaphalaxis from eating poison) and a myriad of other medical diagnoses that would never have existed in the people suffering with them if not for ARSENIC IN OUR FOOD SUPPLY.

The FDA does not care. Food making millionaires do not care. This crisis is getting worse with every arsenic application.

Soon, people will not be ABLE to live normal lives or have kids at all because our bodies are being destroyed quicker and quicker with the higher and higher levels of arsenic ingested DAILY.

In the 1960's, the FDA reported that rates higher than 10 ppb = 7 people per million guaranteed to get Cancer from 1 cup of food with 10 parts per billion of Arsenic were FORBIDDEN. That report and many others about this are on their website and I have collected tons of data from multiple sources, including the FDA, on my website since they have been backpedaling and upping the arsenic allowed every year because they CAN'T go down when they keep adding MORE arsenic every year.

So, now,
100-600 ppb of Arsenic
PER 1 CUP of food.

Do the math.
There are 3.5 million people living in America right now.
Let's use 300 ppb because that is VERY COMMON in any porous food, so you get this over and over and over all day every day with everything you eat....
7 per million is 24.5 people for 3.5 million
300 ppb is 30x 10 ppb so 735 people per cup of food WILL get Cancer or lung issues (such as Anaphalaxis that gets misdiagosed as Asthma). How many cups of food does 1 person eat per day?

A healthy balance of foods each day:
1 1/2 - 2 1/2 cups of fruit and
2 1/2 - 3 1/2 cups of vegetables.
6-10 ounces of grain,
1/2 from whole grains.
3 cups of nonfat or low-fat dairy foods.
(UHT milk is also wreaking havoc on intestines, but not putting that in with these arsenic numbers)
2 + 3 + 1/2 + 1/2 = 6 cups of food per day

So, 6 cups per person per day means we have to take 3.5 million x 6 = 21 million cups per day
x 735
= 1,543,500,000

In 10 years, at the rate we are going, adding more and more Arsenic every year into our soil and food supply, the current generation of great grandkids may be the last generation of people healthy enough to live long enough to be barren or unable to carry children because their bones are swiss cheese.

We have to stop this.
We have to choose not to eat poisons.
We have to reverse the toxicity of arsenic, then bleaching to get some of the arsenic out, then lying to the public pretending it is ok to force-feed mass murdering ignorance, which is DEADLY, not bliss.

What can we do about it?

The use of plants to clean up contaminated soil and water is called phytoremediation. Phytoremediation offers an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective method to remove arsenic from contaminated soil. In addition to brake fern, other plants have been found to be useful in phytoremediation.

Arsenic IS in our food supply in the U.S. in MASSIVE amounts of 250 ppb - 560 ppb, just in 1 cup of rice. The FDA knows and still allows arsenic poisoning to keep happening and no one is doing anything about it. I have been studying this and collecting reports on it for years. The wheat and rice are the worst causes of Cancer and lung problems in the people eating these foods, in the United States, because of the pesticides in the soil. Plus, the wheat fields get sprayed with pesticides the day before plowing to make the wheat more pliable for harvesting. Wheat and rice are extremely pourous and they do not "lose" arsenic just because it is harvested. Organic brown rice baby food by Gerber was the worst offender with 568 ppb a few years ago. Arsenic IS causing Cancer in 7 people per 1 cup of rice with only 10 ppb of inorganic arsenic in it. The FDA has known this and has bee publishing worldwide studies on their website about this since the 1960's! IT IS A VERY WELL KNOWN FACT THAT THERE IS AN INSANELY HIGH AMOUNT OF ARSENIC IN OUR FOOD SUPPLY. In the 1980's, the FDA said they were banning more than 10 ppb of arsenic in our foods. The FDA recently published new rules and now they are saying they are ok with 100 ppb. This is due to LOBBYING BY FOOD AND PESTICIDE MANUFACTURERS and the ignorance and helplessness of the American public to help ourselves NOT die horrible deaths from being poisoned by people we SHOULD be able to trust.

A couple years ago a man argued here on my blog saying that people can't be allergic to proteins. He is one of those nutrition physical trainer types of people. He is wrong. Pretty sure we aren't connected on FB anymore, but here is some proof I just read that I am posting so that others can be edified by this information and the prejudices people get thinking they know everything based on either a feeling that something is right or wrong or based on something they were told by someone who is supposed to be well-informed.

I already knew form medical tests that I am allergic to proteins and my body has severe reactions to them, but today I learned even more...

I am allergic to milk proteins, wheat proteins, and latex. I never knew a latex allergy is a protein allergy until a few minutes ago.

I started to get very very ill from wheat and rice eating "healthy" whole grains and staying away from bleached whites. I get sick because of the high arsenic content in our foods. This is also why I became deathly allergic to cigarettes losing my voice with even a second of exposure to second hand smoke because my airways close up immediately when exposed to the arsenic in cigarettes. This food allergy has been getting worse with even the tiniest exposure to cross-contamination of arsenic containing foods. These are two problems with messing with our foods so that they are not all natural, unaltered by man.

When the milk is messed with under ultra-pasteurization, burning it for 2 minutes, to make it have a longer shelf life, this separates out the proteins in the milk. It is then called whey. I am severely allergic to this. Many other people are told they are lactose intolerant when it started in 1995-ish as a direct result of messing with the milk this way. They further mess with the milk to make it taste not burnt, so then the do more man-altered things to the milk to make it taste better than it does after burning it. These is also the reasons that milk tastes different now than it did when we were kids.

Wheat fields are sprayed with pesticides the day before plowing to make the wheat more pliable for plowing. If it is not scrubbed and bleached, the arsenic is in the wheat and then it is inside us.


Rice has the highest content of arsenic of all foods we eat.

The FDA said in their reports (which I have posted many times on this blog so search my name + arsenic for those blogs) that 10 ppb parts per billion per serving gives 8 people cancer and a serving is 1 cup of rice.

The FDA researched it as did other countries, and the reports on the FDA website said this in the 1960's.

In 2019, the ratio of arsenic in 1 cup of rice is between 250 ppb and 570 ppb for almost every rice you can buy.

There are 3 I have read about that are concerned and try to minimize arsenic in their rice.

Other than that, every cup of rice that you eat in your life can add to your potential to get Cancer by a rate of 50 times on median average, meaning that 4,000 people WILL get Cancer off 1 serving of rice that has 500 ppb arsenic in it. This is not a possibility, it is a SCIENTIFIC, EXTENSIVELY STUDIED, AND PROVEN FACT.

View Consumer Report on Arsenic

In late 2012 we released our original report on arsenic in rice, in which we found measurable levels in almost all of the 60 rice varieties and rice products we tested.

Our most recent testing and analysis gave us some new information on the risk of arsenic exposure in infants and children through rice cereal and other rice products. We looked at data released by the Food and Drug Administration in 2013 on the inorganic arsenic content of 656 processed rice-containing products. We found that rice cereal and rice pasta can have much more inorganic arsenic, a carcinogen, than our 2012 data showed. According to the results of our new tests, one serving of either could put kids over the maximum amount of rice we recommend they should have in a week. Rice cakes supply close to a child's weekly limit in one serving. Rice drinks can also be high in arsenic, and children younger than 5 shouldn‘t drink them instead of milk. (Learn the new rice rules about weekly servings.)

In 2012, we recommended that babies eat no more than one serving of infant rice cereal per day, on average, and that their diets should include cereals made from other grains. We did not find any reason to change our advice based on our new analysis. When we shared our results with the FDA and asked for comment, the agency reiterated its recommendation that everyone, including pregnant women, infants, and toddlers, should eat a variety of grains. And they pointed out that parents should “consider options other than rice cereal for a child‘s first solid food.”

The Trouble With Arsenic Arsenic has two chemical forms, inorganic and organic (the latter of which can be less toxic), and is naturally part of the minerals in the earth‘s crust. (Note, here organic is a chemistry term and should not be confused with food sold as “organic.”) Arsenic also has been released into the environment through the use of pesticides and poultry fertilizer. (Chickens can be fed arsenic.) Therefore, it‘s in soil and water. Rice tends to absorb arsenic more readily than many other plants.

Regular exposure to small amounts of arsenic can increase the risk of bladder, lung, and skin cancer, as well as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Recent studies also suggest that arsenic exposure in utero may have effects on the baby‘s immune system.

The USA Rice Federation says, “Studies show that including white or brown rice in the diet provides measureable health benefits that outweigh the potential risks associated with exposure to trace levels of arsenic.” Consumer Reports food safety experts believe those levels do carry a risk.

There is no federal limit for arsenic in rice and rice products. (The FDA has proposed a “action level” for arsenic in juice.) Since 2012, Consumer Reports has been calling on the FDA to set one. The agency told us: “The FDAs ongoing assessment of arsenic in rice remains a priority for the agency. Last year, the FDA released what we believe to be the largest set of test results to date on the presence of arsenic in rice and rice products, and we are planning to release a draft assessment of the potential health risks associated with the consumption of arsenic in these same foods.”

Brown rice has 80 percent more inorganic arsenic on average than white rice of the same type. Arsenic accumulates in the grain‘s outer layers, which are removed to make white rice. Brown has more nutrients, though, so you shouldn‘t switch entirely to white. Brown basmati from California, India, or Pakistan is the best choice; it has about a third less inorganic arsenic than other brown rices.

Food Safety: U.S. Rice Serves Up Arsenic - NCBI

Organic growing conditions, however, do not guarantee low arsenic levels, since any rice growing in arsenic-laden soil soaks up arsenic, says Meharg... The U.S. EPA, which classifies inorganic arsenic as a group A human carcinogen, sets a daily limit at 10 ?g/L from drinking water (the most frequent route of exposure).

Grains Lower in Arsenic
The gluten-free grains amaranth, buckwheat, millet, and polenta or grits had negligible levels of inorganic arsenic. Bulgur, barley, and farro, which contain gluten, also have very little arsenic. Quinoa (also gluten-free), had average inorganic arsenic levels comparable to those of other alternative grains. But some samples had quite a bit more. Though they were still much lower than any of the rices, those spikes illustrate the importance of varying the types of grains you eat.

Cooking to Lower Arsenic Levels
You may be able to cut your exposure to inorganic arsenic in any type of rice by rinsing raw rice thoroughly before cooking, using a ratio of 6 cups water to 1 cup rice, and draining the excess water afterward. That is a traditional method of cooking rice in Asia. The modern technique of cooking rice in water that is entirely absorbed by the grains has been promoted because it allows rice to retain more of its vitamins and other nutrients. But even though you may sacrifice some of rice's nutritional value, research has shown that rinsing and using more water removes about 30 percent of the rice's inorganic arsenic content.

The New Rice Rules: 7 Points per Week
We used our new data and analysis to assign a point value to types of rice foods. On average, we recommend getting no more than 7 points per week. Risk analysis is based on weight, so a serving of any food will give children more points than adults.


Infant Rice Cereal  1/4 cup, uncooked  1-1/4  Points Data Not Available
(However, just a few years ago, Gerber Organic Brown Rice Baby Food had 568 ppb of Arsenic in it!!!!!!)

Rice Cereal, Hot  1/4 cup, uncooked  8-1/4 points  3-1/2 points
Rice Cereal, Ready to Eat  1 cup  4-1/2 points  2-1/4 points

Rice Drinks  1 cup  4 points  2 points

White Basmati 2 or Sushi Rice  1/4 cup, uncooked  2-1/2 points  1-1/2 points

All Other Rice  1/4 cup, uncooked  5-1/2 points  3-1/2 points
Notice that what this is saying is that 1/4 cup of rice has already reached almost the MAX for an entire week. When you realize that almost all gluten-free stuff is made with brown rice, the worst Arsenic culprit, and that what this means is that 7 single servings per every million servings already got Cancer from that one serving of rice, it is a living nightmare that this is actually happening in America, INTENTIONALLY.

And frequent exposure to inorganic arsenic, even in low doses, can cause health concerns. Small doses can cause:

Stomach aches
Abdominal pain and diarrhea
And confusion
And larger doses create more serious problems, such as Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Fibromyalgia, ADHD, Autism, Bipolar, behavioral disorders, and a myriad more secondary diagnoses due to Arsenic poisoning as the primary reason.

Inorganic arsenic can even be deadly in high amounts such as is present in our food supply, though the inorfanics are what is creating this epidemic.

In ancient Greece, arsenic was often used as a poison for criminals. A dose the size of a pea was found to be fatal.

Long-term exposure to arsenic has been linked to numerous health issues, including:

Skin pigmentation and lesions
Type 2 diabetes
High blood pressure and heart disease
Neurological problems
And other ailments

India has proof that attributes skin tags to Arsenic poisoning.

What About Organic Rice?

Organically-farmed rice may contain fewer pesticides, but all rice soaks up arsenic from the soil.

So organic rice will have fewer toxins overall. But it won‘t likely have lower levels of arsenic unless the soil it grew in was never exposed to arsenic – not even 50 years ago.

- - - - - - - - -

Which Rice Has The Least Arsenic?
Basmati rice from California, India, or Pakistan is the best choice, according to Consumer Reports data. These types of rice have about one third of the inorganic arsenic compared to brown rice from other regions.

Rice grown in Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, and most other U.S. states had the highest inorganic arsenic levels. So it is best to minimize or avoid rice grown in these areas.

You can also check company websites and contact rice companies to see if they conduct independent testing for arsenic levels in their rice.

One brand in particular, Lundberg Farms, is transparent about the problems of arsenic in rice. Their CEO wrote a letter about the issue and how the company is addressing it.

How Does Arsenic Get In Rice

When arsenic is in the soil, all plants will absorb some of it. But rice is different.

Because it is grown under flooded conditions (where irrigation water is often contaminated with arsenic), rice absorbs more arsenic than other food crops.

Arsenic-based pesticides were heavily used on crops for decades. And inorganic arsenic can persist in the soil indefinitely.

Even if farmland has been growing organic food for decades, if it was ever exposed to arsenic-contaminated pesticides, these toxins may still persist in the soil today.

Inorganic arsenic compounds and most arsenic-based pesticides have now been banned in agriculture in the U.S. But some may still reach Americans by way of other countries.


Can Arsenic Be Removed from Rice?


Can Arsenic Be Removed from Rice?

To some extent, arsenic can be washed off. Arsenic is water soluble.

Published studies indicate that cooking rice in excess water (from six to 10 parts water to one part rice), and draining the excess water, can reduce 40 to 60% of the inorganic arsenic content, depending on the type of rice.

And a 2015 study published in PLOS ONE, found a cooking method that reduced arsenic by 85%. They used a filter coffee maker to pass the hot water through the rice as it cooked.

How to Reduce Arsenic in Rice

If you decide to eat rice, you may want to take these steps:

Choose organic basmati rice from California (or India and Pakistan) if possible.
Rinse rice thoroughly or even better soak it for 48 hours before cooking it, pouring off the water and rinsing it every 8 to 12 hours (like soaking beans).
Cook rice in 6 to 10 parts water to one part rice.
When the rice is done, drain off the extra water after cooking.
Or if you want to try making rice in a coffee maker, Quartz has suggestions here.

Water is often contaminated with arsenic as well, so using filtered water is best. (Learn more about the importance of clean drinking water.)

And think about adding variety to your diet and trying more alternatives to rice.

Rice Recommendations

The FDA issued a statement discouraging parents to not use rice and rice cereals as a primary food due to arsenic contamination.

Instead, the agency advises parents to feed kids a variety grains and other foods.

Further proof that the FDA does not protect us at all. They allow food manufacturers to make millions off killing people and torturing people with Cancer.

BE CAREFUL!!!!!!!!
