A new study by Dartmouth finds high-level arsenic in rice, particularly brown rice syrup -- a sugar substitute used in formula, cereal bars and other kids' foods.

Levels in organic formula were 20 times higher than in non-organic varieties.

What can we tell patients or our families about arsenic in the food supply? Previous IATP study found arsenic in chicken meat as well. In addition, an estimated 53 million Americans drink water from systems legally contaminated with arsenic at levels thought to confer a lifetime risk of dying from cancer caused by arsenic of between 1-in-500 and 1-in-5,000.

Where does all this arsenic come from? What can we do about it?

Join IATP's Healthy Food Action and the Collaborative on Health and the Environment for a webinar to discuss the study and its findings on arsenic in food products, with study author Dr. Brian Jackson, IATP's David Wallinga, M.D., and Dr. Keeve Nachman from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
