[edit] Information

Rice: How Safe Is Our Food? We're eating more rice than ever before. It's in our ready meals, our breakfast cereals and in the food we feed our children. But some leading scientists and experts are warning that some types of commonly consumed rice contain a worrying level of naturally occurring arsenic. You can find very low levels of arsenic in most food and water but researchers are concerned that arsenic can reach much higher levels in rice. While there are strict limits for the arsenic level permitted in water, there are currently no maximum levels for our food and some scientists are now speaking out as they are concerned about the effects of long-term exposure. As more evidence emerges about the harm high levels of arsenic might cause, particularly to children, new maximum levels are being proposed by the government and the European Union. Morland Sanders investigates these new proposals and reveals the results of tests on some of our most popular rice products.
