A new study says that too much to eat rice was very dangerous. Scientists estimate that rice exposed to dangerous toxins after making a study of 229 pregnant women who participated in the research conducted at the birth center in New Hampshire.
Researchers then compared the samples of urine among women who consume rice and who do not eat rice. According to researchers, each gram of rice consumed is associated with increased one percent of total arsenic in urine.
The study found that pregnant women who consume more than one and a half bowl of rice equivalent to 34 ounces (one liter) of water containing arsenic. The findings also revealed that some cultural groups have a risk of high levels of arsenic through rice, such as Asian society. While American average consumes only about one-half cup rice per day, compared to Asian people who ate up more than two bowls per day.
In addition, researchers also found high levels of inorganic arsenic in women who just eat rice, compared with women who do not eat rice. According to the Environmental Protection Agency America reveals inorganic arsenic is associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer, lung and skin, as well as type two diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
But do not then you do not want to eat rice because this research. In the study, researchers did not measure the levels of arsenic from rice itself, but on other factors. Rice is very effective in absorbing arsenic from the environment around them. This is caused by the physiology of rice plants and area affected by flooding, which led to the emergence of a compound of arsenic in rice which eventually became the rice consumed.
