Dear friends, for years I have felt run down and out of energy; and the food I eat just tastes bland. I tried everything but nothing seemed to work, until recently.
A friend suggested that I go on an arsenic free diet – and after 30 days without arsenic, I feel great! My energy is back and I can taste food again.
There is, however, one way to tell if a food product has higher than normal levels of arsenic. Much of the foods labeled “Gluten-Free” contain a wheat substitute that, even when produced organically, contains potentially dangerous levels of arsenic.
This wheat substitute is rice. In a recent NBC News broadcast, it was reported that “Consumer Reports tested more than 200 samples of the most popular brands of rice and discovered elevated levels of arsenic.”
So please excuse me if, when I visit, I turn down your gluten free food. It’s not because it tastes horrible, it’s just because I am gluten-free intolerant.
