I am new to the group/Forum.  I read the information below regarding the affects of Rice, included in a gluten free diet.  I am very concerned after reading the information regarding Rice having high levels of Arsenic and Mercury.  I use rice product in my every day preparation of meals.  I would like to know more about the affects of eating rice and any diet recommendations.  I would appreciate your review and reply.  Thank you.
