I buy quite a few LEF supplements and many are filled with rice flour. There seems to be news coming out every week that states rice flour, rice, juices contain Arsenic. Here is just one random one that came out this week.

I'm concerned that by taking supplements with rice flour I may be hurting my health in the long run. I like LEF products and wish to continue taking them, but wish there was more assurance that I 'm not poisoning myself.

Life Extension(R) products are analyzed for heavy metals, including arsenic.  A copy of a certificate of analysis for each product that includes heavy metal screening results is available upon request.

There seems to be concern for arsenic in rice bran too even though it's considered a super food high in anti-oxidants.

A lot depends on where the rice is grown and other factors related to soil. In Asia they have a high rice diet but don't seem to have any more incidence of cancer or other diseases than the rest of the world's population so I never gave it much concern for that reason since I eat a ton of rice myself, including a glass of dissolved stabilized rice bran at least three or four times a week for the B vitamins.

There are harmful chemicals in everything due to our lack of care about our environment.  When you pollute all air, water and land there is absolutely NOTHING that can be made without something harmful in it, even with filtration.  Its just another reason why we should be taking care of our planet instead of destroying it at a faster and faster pace due to insanity. 

The real pollution is in our air, water and food, not cigarettes which has been a smoke screen for criminal companies and govt agencies around the world.  :-)

Good day.

I agree with MarkG, who suggests the whole world is thoroughly contaminated. I take occasional baths in bentonite clay and every 2 or 3 days, I take 2 capsules of (calcium) EDTA mixed in a little water as a suppository. Considering high radiation levels throughout the world, thanks to Fukushima, chelation of some sort should be practiced by all. My own experience with MCP (pectin) is that it chelates far too much magnesium. I use topical magnesium referred to as magnesium oil, which seems to work far better than oral magnesium. I avoid MCP.
