Organic brown rice syrup may contain arsenic

Posted on February 16th, 2012 No Comments

A new study conducted by researchers at Dartmouth College have discovered that food products made with organic brown rice syrup contain high levels of arsenic.

Arsenic is a carcinogen that can cause heart disease and cancer if one is exposed to high levels of it. Researchers found arsenic in some organic baby formulas. Infants are more vulnerable to arsenic’s negative side effects due to their small size. Children exposed to too much arsenic can develop poorer intellectual functions and lower IQs.

Other food products found to contain arsenic included cereal bars and energy shot drinks. The researchers believe that occasionally eating food with organic brown syrup won’t cause any harm, but the frequency should be monitored.
