A recent story shared via Facebook warns of the dangers of allowing children to eat rice cakes.
Warning To All Parents: Don’t Let Your Children Eat Rice Cakes.
Popular rice products found in grocery stores all over the world can be harmful to young children. A new study has found excessive levels of a carcinogenic substance in some well-known favorites and is issuing a warning to parents everywhere.
The story goes on to say
After examining 102 commercial rice products, the National Food Agency in Sweden found levels of the carcinogen arsenic in some cases too high
However, there is no link to the actual study (the link behind "this study" actually links to an English red-top news story).
Is there any truth to this story whatsoever? Do rice products routinely have high levels of arsenic? That's a bit subjective so by "high" are they in any way dangerous to children if eaten routinely/daily?
