New study finds connection between arsenic and organic food

Posted on February 21, 2012 11:51 am under Defective Food Product

A new study released by researchers at Dartmouth University reveals a connection between prominent levels of arsenic and organic food.

Researchers studied several organic food products, including baby food and cereal bars, in the study. They determined that the brands of food that contained organic brown rice syrup as one of their top ingredients had much larger amounts of arsenic than those brands that did not contain the syrup.

The brown rice syrup is used in organic food products in order to eliminate the use of high fructose corn syrup. The arsenic that has been found in the syrup is inorganic instead of organic. This type of arsenic is more lethal, and can lead to increased risks of cancer and diabetes.
