Eating Arsenic, Cadmium and Lead

Consumer Reports has tested some brands and types of rice and rice products to find out how much inorganic arsenic it contains.
Poisoned fields retain the inorganic arsenic metals which are taken up through the root systems.
As always, just because something is labeled ‘all natural’, ‘organic’ or ‘non-GMO’, doesn’t mean it’s non-toxic.

The chart at the link above shows cadmium, lead, inorganic arsenic and organic arsenic levels.

I’m glad I don’t shop at Whole Foods. It looks like their store brand brown rice is grown in some of the most poisoned fields of all. And if I wanted to ingest larger amounts of cadmium, I would skip eating their brown rice, ignore the artist label warnings and lick a tube of any cadmium color.
