Arsenic in rice: II. Arsenic speciation in USA grain and implications for human health

Arsenic in rice: II. Arsenic speciation in USA grain and implications for human health

Environmental Science & Technology 42(10): 3861-3866

Rice is a potentially important route of human exposure to arsenic, especially in populations with rice-based diets. However, arsenic toxicity varies greatly with species. The initial purpose of the present study was to evaluate arsenic speciation in U.S. rice. Twenty-four samples containing high levels of arsenic and produced in different regions of the U.S were selected from a previous market-basket survey. Arsenite and dimethyl arsinic acid (DMA) were the major species detected.
