Rice has 10-20 times more arsenic compared to other cereal grains.
The 411 on all things fibre -- what it is and what it can do for you. From the AOL Partner Studio
I love a good one-pot meal. The hands-on time is minimal and then you get to kick back and relax, or knock a couple of things off of your to-do list while your dinner simmers away and your house fills with delicious aromas.

When the latest study from Consumer Reports revealed dangerous levels of arsenic in both rice and products containing rice, I was alarmed, especially since my daughter enjoys a nice bowl of organic brown rice. But my first though was "we are consuming organic rice, so we are OK." Not true.
