And while many foods we eat contain some arsenic (from apple juice and beer to chicken), the concentration of arsenic tends to be higher in rice because rice absorbs it more readily than other plants do. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/health_blog/should_i_be_worried_about_arsenic_in_rice#comments Health Blog Brierley Wright, M.S., R.D.
