    Carcinogens found in rice

    Rice is a source of arsenic exposure in the U.S., a study of pregnant women showed.

    Both rice consumption and exposure to arsenic through cooking with or drinking tap water were associated with increased arsenic concentrations in the urine (P<0.0001 for both), according to Diane Gilbert-Diamond, PhD, of Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., and colleagues.

    There's also probably ant shit in there too, but nobody seems to be studying that.....

    I can't be bothered to do the actual research but I'm sure I read somewhere quite recently that arsenic is present in the soil so no matter what you eat / drink you're going to come into contact with it - it's unavoidable and inevitably increases the concentration in urine. However, it's in such miniscule amounts that it's pointless even thinking about it.

    I do get tired of this sort of scaremongering.

    Me too dibs. Darkstar's ant shit thing does sort of freak me out though. Ant shit is so small that it is very difficult to detect.

    Awww, poor old Wruff! Don't fret about it, mate - they reckon that whilst you're asleep you swallow hundreds of spiders during the course of your lifetime - so ant shit should be the least of your worries!

    Oops! Sorry to break that to you, Steve - I thought it was common knowledge!

    Just remember, there's only so long you can resist the urge to sleep - it'll just sneak up on you when you least expect it - much like the SPIDERS!!!
