- Hair conditioner
- And More!
Please be sure to read the comments at the bottom of Jillee’s articles. There’s some good advice about how to wash rice in order to get rid of any arsenic that may have contaminated the rice. There’s also a recipe for a diarrhea treatment that uses rice water.
Rice is grown in paddies which are drenched with water. Because it’s grown in water, rice is more exposed to contaminates like arsenic. The arsenic concentrate in the “germ” portion of the rice, which is the reproductive part of the rice grain. the germ is removed during the making of white rice. Consequently, brown rice can have higher concentrations of arsenic, because the germ is not removed from that type of rice. One article I read said that jasmine and basmati rice grown in India or Thailand have lower levels of arsenic than rice grown in the U.S.
