For those of you just getting up to speed, I started a petition over at Change.org because the whole arsenic in organic brown rice syrup just pissed me off. Especially, when I found out that a 2007 study by Dr.Meharg showed that rice was sucking up man-made arsenic. Now we have the Consumer Report study saying the same thing. Arsenic in rice.
If you do the math, that is five years that the rice arsenic connection has been hiding under the rug. Or should I say in the rice patties.
Here are my two articles about the controversy:
- Arsenic in Organic Brown Rice Syrup–Who’s to Blame?
- Arsenic in Organic Brown Rice Syrup and Rice. How to Eat Safely.
Here is the update on the petition.
