Have You Been Cooking Rice Wrong All These Years?
The seemingly innocent way of boiling rice may be a risk to your health.
Did you know there was a right and wrong way to cook rice? If you answered no then odds are you’ve been making a fatal error for all these years. According to scientists, the way the majority of us cook rice may be harmful to our health. Why?
According to research from Channel 4’s Dispatches and the Institute for Global Food Security, around 58 percent of rice-based products in the UK contain high levels of arsenic.
Recent experiments have found that by simply boiling rice in a pan until the water has steamed out can be insufficient in killing traces of the poison arsenic which contaminates rice when it is growing as a result of pesticides and industrial toxins. Arsenic has been linked to a range of health problems including cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
