Lundberg Family Farms grows only non-gmo, environmentally sound rices in the northern CA central valley (north of Sacramento). The Costcos around here (and Reno) sell their organic short grain brown rice in 13 lb bags for about $12.
I trust the Lundberg name, and try to avoid rices if I don't know where they are grown.

I always go to the indian store and buy my rice and beans. They have a much larger selection to choose from. I love to shop at Whole Foods Market, I could spend hours in that store :)

Here's an article from The Atlantic:

/so-theres-arsenic-in-our-rice-now-wha
t/262972/

You don't have to stop eating brown rice, but it's good to be aware of how much you eat, and of where it comes from. The article says that the highest arsenic levels are found in rice grown in the Cotton Belt, probably due to past use of arsenic-containing pesticides. So, buy California-, Thailand-, or India-grown rice if you can.

A co-worker told me that brown rice is getting negative press because it's high in arsenic. Has anyone else heard this?
