Everything grown on the ground has traces of arcenic because arcenic is a naturally occurring element. If you are very concerned.. Rinse your rice thoroughly before cooking and then cook it like pasta in a pot full of water and drain it. White rice cooks on a full boil for 8 minutes drain, return to the pan, and then rests with a top on the pan to steam for a few minutes in the pan heat. Buying rice not from China also helps. Their rice has a higher concentration.

Found this in my newsletter from Prevention.

I might go to a used restaurant supply house to see how much their coffee pots are so I can rest easier about the rice grown here.
