How Might this Impact the Consumer?

The FDA has not recommended that consumers change their diets based on information about arsenic in rice as reported by Consumer Reports. Rice is the most-consumed calorie around the world. It is a nutritious food and an important part of a healthy diet for our families because it contains more than 15 vitamins and minerals that help protect against disease. In fact, populations with high rice consumption are associated with less overall disease rates and with better health, and scientific studies show that people who eat rice have healthier diets.
