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.

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.
