British scientists have found that eating rice causes 50,000 premature deaths a year.
The dangerous property of the product is explained by the fact that rice groats accumulate inorganic arsenic.
This was told by the staff of the University of Manchester. The results of the study are published on the official website of the educational institution.
Scientists have established a link between rice consumption and the risk of diseases of the cardiovascular system.
So, experts have found that one in four British rice consumers have a high risk of death from cardiovascular diseases. We are talking about people who already have malfunctions in the work of the heart and blood vessels.
The danger of eating rice is associated with the effects of arsenic contained in it on the human body.
However, the researchers recalled that rice is a healthy product. However, to reduce the risk of disease, it is desirable to give preference to varieties such as polished rice and basmati.
It is these types of rice cereals that accumulate the minimum amount of inorganic arsenic.
