Read it close, this is all BS in the name of raising your water prices and importing and taxing your rice.



Snip: It is almost impossible to say how dangerous these levels are without a benchmark from the federal government. Consumer Reports uses New Jersey's drinking water standard - a maximum of 5 micrograms in a liter of water - as comparison because it is one of the strictest in the country. But it is unclear how accurate it is to compare arsenic levels in water and arsenic levels in rice - most people consume more water than rice, so drinking water standards may need to be tougher.

This is timely propaganda. We have known for over 30 years that the average grain of rice grown in the U.S. runs at 260 parts per billion. But in China their rice contains less than 150 PPB. They are going to force us to stop growing rice and import it, follow the money on this story.

At the same time they will demand we remove ALL the arsenic form water and that will not be cheap so they can further raise rates and hurt the farmers. Currently water has to have less than 10 PPB or 5 PBB if it is bottled water.

Again they are trying to kill an industry and export it to china.

Next they will demand people close their wells and get municipal drinking water because 20% of wells in the country are over the 10PPB limit.
 Quoting: Chrit


Alternatively, perhaps the scientists' evil plan was to try to convince congress that the process of intentionally putting arsenic-filled chicken feces on your rice fields is a bad idea and should not be done anymore.

Go even further down the rabbit hole and you might find that these scientsts hope that their "propaganda" might even lead to US farmers no longer intentionally feeding their chicken arsenic.

They's evil, pure evil I tells ya!

You need to WASH the rice before cooking, at least 3 or 4 times...that will help according to the article that I read.

Arsenic is a naturally occurring
compound found in all of nature,
mostly originating in soil.
The amount found in rice is minuscule.

One has to wonder what the motives are of the FDA in pointing out the arsenic content in rice but not chicken.

Hysteria over arsenic in rice misleading to US public

Recent media stories based on studies about high levels of arsenic in rice are misleading the public about this issue, and the USA Rice Federation issued a statement addressing concerns about arsenic and rice. Because arsenic is ubiquitous and present in air, soil, water, and foods, dietary exposure to arsenic comes from a variety of different sources, including fruits, fruit juice, vegetables and other grains. There currently are no standards or limits for arsenic in food.

Arsenic in Chicken

The poultry industry feeds their birds millions of pounds of arsenic-containing drugs every year.

Don't wash the heck out of rice, you should look up what happens as a result. not good.

Why worry anyway? Arsenic, malnutrition. After the shtf...it's only a matter of time.

Even if tshtf EVERY prepper will die from accident, death, illness, childbirth. You know the drill.

Unless you have a completely 4year+ self sufficient bunker built into a remote mountain that completely keeps you out of contact from civilization, you're just wasting your time with prepping.

Keeping a good supply of food and guns is cool for a week or two long scenario, but some of these people that are sacrificing everything in their life so they can live in a little cargo container expecting world wide doom, with a house filled with random prepping shit, pssh, gfto. You're gonna get raped and killed by the mercenaries if you're hording all that material, simple as that. A few broke ass hillbilly's with guns ain't stopping shit if a true world collapse scenario takes place.

Re: Just In - Bad News for Preppers - FDA Tests Find Arsenic in Rice
so is it from the rice or the processing machinery?

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.

A prime example why most organic foods are a scam. baby

Re: Just In - Bad News for Preppers - FDA Tests Find Arsenic in Rice
This is propaganda, pure and simple.

Just a few months ago, there were limits on how many pounds of rice one could buy at one time, so tptb KNOW people are "prepping" and stashing rice and other foods that store well.

How to stop? Well, we COULD say it's all POISONED and people will DIE if they feed it to their families. OMG!!!! Who wants to do THAT?!?!?!?!

OMG!!!! STOP buying rice. STARVE rather than stock up on rice............

It's bogus. We've been eating the same "poisoned" rice forever. and some of us have died, and some of us are still here..........

I believe there's even more inorganic arsenic in the rice than in the chicken because the rice is like a sponge and sucks of several chickens' worth per same weight.

Another veggie that grows in marsh conditions and is easily susceptible to environmental contamination is watercress, but most people eat a lot more rice than watercress.

Red meat?

eggs and egg yolks?

Butter?

Rice?

whole milk?


double check what they DO want you to eat....

Soy?

Corn?

Margerine?

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).

Glad we only eat Indian basmati rice. Tastes better than regular white rice anyway.

Wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't some veiled effort to discourage newbie preppers who were thinking of stock-piling rice among other staples.spam

Cook it in a 6 to 1 ratio of water to rice? WTF? That would be nothing but rice floating around in water. You can't cook rice like that, unless you want rice soup. The ratio to make rice, (white) is 1 cup of rice to 1 cup of water.

Blech.


Why all of a sudden now is rice bad? Has it always been this way? Or is this something new that just happened to rice?

OH spread the FEAR!!! There has always been arsenic in rice!!
Its natural and found everywhere in nature...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24087587


Except this is inorganic arsenic and at high doses due to poor farming and industrial practices and it could kill you.

But hey if you think that's natural well yes...dying after eating poison is natural.

I'm sure there's some radioactivity in the rice too, I heard it took about 15 years for it to fall to background levels in most European food after Chernobyl.

But those are separate issues.
