So That’s What’s On The Bottom Of My Rice Cooker

Forget about China’s contaminated milk, it now seems their friggin rice is full of harmful heavy metals. Yay industrialization! It is feared over 10% of all rice grown in China contains nasty metals like cadmium, arsenic and mercury. The reason rice is so susceptible is that polluted irrigation water from nearby mines absorbs is easily into the plant. Ah never mind, they’ll probably export it all anyways!

Psst Shame it doesn’t include lead I think I need a few fillings!
