A report released by the American Chemical Society reveals that rice imported into the United States from China and other countries contains very high levels of lead.
The FDA has established a “provisional total tolerable intake” (PTTI) level for lead, but some of the rice samples tested for this research exceeded the PTTI by 12,000%.
Imported rice was reportedly sampled from “Bhutan, Italy, China, Taiwan, India, Israel, the Czech Republic and Thailand,” reports the BBC.
Lead is extremely damaging to developing brains and contributes to organ failure. It was removed from gasoline (“unleaded”), paint and other industrial products in the United States for precisely these reasons.
