Go to Yahoo, read the article, and weep.
Update: I have been thinking about this post and wanted to include a follow-up. The article speaks specifically of brown rice syrup, not brown rice having high arsenic content. I am sure it is because of the concentrated nature of the syrup. Here are a couple of pertinent paragraphs. The brown rice syrup is a big concern for those of us who try to use healthier processed gluten-free foods.
"According to the study, which was published Thursday in the journal "Environmental Health Perspectives," the researchers also found high arsenic levels in some organic foods sweetened with brown rice syrup, including cereal bars, energy bars, and gel energy "shots" that athletes slurp down after working out.
"'The baby formula findings are concerning,' Jackson said. The risk of arsenic poisoning from eating a cereal bar or and energy shot once in a while are low, he pointed out, but for babies and for people who are on gluten-free diets, arsenic poisoning should be a concern."
