Arsenic Found in Some Organic Foods

A study by researchers at Dartmouth College has found high levels of arsenic in organic foods containing brown rice syrup.

Brown rice syrup is a sweetener often used as a substitute for high fructose corn syrup. Some food products the researchers tested were organic baby formula, cereal bars, and energy shot drinks. In some brands, they found levels of arsenic above the EPA limit for drinking water.

Arsenic is a carcinogen that can cause cancer and heart disease. Infants who consume arsenic could have lower intellectual functions and lower IQs. Researchers believe that eating some foods with brown rice syrup would be relatively harmless if consumed in moderation.
