Is rice going to poison us?

One of my clients asked me the other day about…

‘Arsenic in rice’

She had seen a story in the news that had stated high levels of arsenic can be found in rice!

Sounds pretty scary right???

I hadn’t heard the story (shame on me as a health and fitness professional)

So I decided to do a little digging.

It seems to the increase in arsenic levels in rice is definitely a thing.

This is due to the increase in pollution all over the world.

Now the million dollar question is how does this effect you.

It seems from the research that has been conducted that if you consume rice ALL THE TIME…

Then you may have issues further down the line.

However if you eat it in moderation then you will more than likely be fine.

You can’t really know what types of rice have been effected without testing it.

Sadly neither you or I know how to do that…

As with everything ‘The Devil is in the Dosage’

If you eat too much trans fat it’s bad for you, if you drink too much alcohol it’s bad for you…

So lets just focus on eating single ingredients foods consistently.

I know I say that all the time but I say it all the time because thats what works.

Right, short one for today.

I am off…

Curry with Rice for tea tonight 🙂
