[Action Alert] Recent investigations conducted by Consumer Reports have revealed dangerous levels of arsenic in many of the 200 rice products tested, from brown rice to cereal. The arsenic found in these products can lead to increased cancer risks.
The FDA must set limits on arsenic in food, the same way EPA does for drinking water. Things that contribute to arsenic contamination, such as pesticides, animal drugs, and fertilizers should be banned.
Consumers need to speak out and put pressure on the government and industry so that they'll deal with this health risk. Click here to sign a petition voicing your concerns.
