Increased risk of birth defects, cancer and cardiovascular disease are not typically associated with the consumption of “wholesome” foods such as fruit juice and rice. After all, these menu options are 100% natural and frequently recommended as part of a healthy, low fat meal plan for adults and children alike. However, even if you set aside the high glycemic (ie blood sugar elevating) nature of these foods, you should still consider the possibility that they may be contaminated with the heavy metal arsenic.

Traveling presents a unique set of challenges in terms of maintaining dietary standards. I was reminded of this during the past few weeks while I was away on a business trip in Europe. Even though I made the best possible food choices, I must admit that the quality of my diet wasn’t on par with what I’m accustomed to eating at home.
