"Getting through trials doesn't reveal our strength. (No, the trials do a pretty good job of that.) Getting through trials reveals God's grace and produces our character. So yes, get up. If God allows, get up to fight the good fight. But as you wipe the dust off your back, don't pat."

Natural occuring arsenic is found in many foods including Apples, brown rice among others..I limit but don't eleminate these foods from my diet. Seems its always something! Aspertame increases bone loss, high frutose corn syrup can trigger allergies , and something about soymilk that I can't remember.

Its not exercise, its going outside to play!

I recently read that brown rice contains naturally occuring arsenic. I eat brown rice almost every day. Should I be concerned?

In the article it made it sound like brown rice sugar, often used in protein bars, has more concentrated arsenic. I can substitute homemade trail mix (cereal, unsalted nuts, raisins) for protein bars. Would that be nutritionally better? Probably depends on the cereal. I usually use regular Cheerios, corn flakes, or Special K. Would be open to other kinds of cereals. Or other recipes.
