“Wheat will destroy you!” they shout…..so we switch to rice. “Rice is full of arsenic and will cause cancer!” is the next dire warning. And carrots have arsenic I just read. I EAT CARROTS EVERYDAY!!
Having read this, that and the other, I’ve gotta believe that meat, dairy, refined sugar and oils are more of a threat to good health than fruits and vegetables and grains are.
And if arsenic in rice is such a cancer-causer, why are cancer rates lower in Japan and China where they eat rice much more than people do in the USA?
I think I need a break from all the advice that is meant to help me. If I believed all of the contradictory and dire warnings, there would be no food or drink that would make the cut. Seriously. Every food I believe to be good for us has been bashed by somebody.
ANY ADVICE YOU HAVE TO OFFER THAT CAN HELP ME KEEP THIS IN PERSPECTIVE WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!
