Just In - Bad News for Preppers - FDA Tests Find Arsenic in Rice
After detecting cancer-causing compound, the agency vows to make further studies a priority. Well, when TSHTF, you'll either starve to death or die from cancer.

[link to www.chicagotribune.com]

The FDA's analysis showed average levels of 3.5 to 6.7 micrograms of inorganic arsenic per serving, while Consumer Reports found levels up to 8.7 micrograms. The FDA released 200 samples, while Consumer Reports tested 223.

And for a bonus on arsenic:

US poultry industry has a disturbing habit of feeding arsenic to chickens. Arsenic, it turns out, helps control a common bug that infects chicken meat, and also gives chicken flesh a pink hue, which the industry thinks consumers want.

White rice grown in Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, and Texas generally had higher levels of total arsenic and inorganic arsenic than rice samples from elsewhere (India, Thailand and California combined).

If you take a look at the above report, cadmium & lead are listed too. Cadmium is an extremely toxic metal commonly found in industrial workplaces. You all know what lead can do, I'm sure. Did you take a look at all the baby foods that are part of this???

Re: Just In - Bad News for Preppers - FDA Tests Find Arsenic in Rice
Among the four infant cereals tested, we found varying levels of arsenic, even in the same brand. Gerber SmartNourish Organic Brown Rice cereal had one sample with the highest level of total arsenic in the category at 329 ppb, and another sample had the lowest total level in this category at 97.7 ppb. It had 0.8 to 1.3 micrograms of inorganic arsenic per serving.

Earth’s Best Organic Whole Grain Rice cereal had total arsenic levels ranging from 149 ppb to 274 ppb, but higher levels of inorganic arsenic per serving, from 1.7 to 2.7 micrograms.

Yeah, you'd best be getting to work praying over those smouldering reactors at Fukushima, they're killing all the birds and butterflies in the whole region, it's probably because the Japanese were too dumb to realize they could fix the whole situation just by praying over it.

Who knew the solution to the problem of pollution was so simple! Woohoo we never have to be cautious or cleanly ever again!

You've got two choices when the SHTF. You can either starve to death or take your chances and eat your rice stash. I say keep buying rice for emergency purposes.

This deserves to be repeated:

US poultry industry has a disturbing habit of feeding arsenic to chickens. Arsenic, it turns out, helps control a common bug that infects chicken meat, and also gives chicken flesh a pink hue, which the industry thinks consumers want.

[link to www.motherjones.com]

Don't forget that chicken is also pumped full of hormones so that the birds will grow very quickly. All meats has nasty things in them. This is includes not just meat but almost everything on store shelves. Sad, but true.

Choice #3: Buy your rice from a country that doesn't use "chicken litter" filled with arsenic to fertilize their rice.
