How to Remove Arsenic when Cooking Rice

Using excess water when cooking rice removes up to 60% of arsenic. Use 12 cups of water for every 1 cup of rice. Simmer until rice is cooked. Then strain out the excess water to decrease the arsenic content and store.

Another way to decrease up to 85% of arsenic from rice is using a coffee percolator. As the cooking water continuously drips over the rice, it maximizes arsenic removal. Researchers at Queen's University Institute (Belfast) for Global Food Security have applied for a patent for a percolating rice cooker.

The U.S. ans European Union have no legal restrictions for amounts of inorganic arsenic in food. The World Health Organization recommends .2mg/km rice daily. An average serving (45g) contains between .002 to .16mg of arsenic per Kilogram of rice. Unpolished brown rice has higher levels of arsenic than WHO recommends.

Inorganic arsenic is more than twice the organic arsenic. It exists in the soil, groundwater, and drinking water. Children especially, are at risk of cancers, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes. Chronic exposure for adults and children may also cause skin, bladder, and lung cancer, respiratory disease, and fetal immune disruption.

Antoxidant benefit of Aromatic Tumerones of Curcumin

The antioxidant benefits of Aromatic Tumerones from curcumin include reducing inflammation cancer and metastasis , high serum lipids,gastric ulcers,hemorrhaging, and necrosis of tissues, diabetes, Alzheimer's allergies, the effects of environmental toxins, depession and anxiety. Aromatic tumerones also protect the liver, reduce  allergies, clear the complexion and speed wound healing. Aromatic tumerones are 7x more easily absorbed than curcumin and turmeric. It is safe to use 400-800 milligrams daily.

Over 800 studies with cancer patients show tumerones reduce the incidence growth and metastasis of all cancers It reduces the adverse effects of chemotherapy and radiation. I do not recommend   taking it 3 days before surgery, as recommended by the surgeons .

For arthritis, aromatic tumerones are more effective than Nsaids. Studies showed noticeable improvement with osteoarthritis  within 4 weeks.  This includes pain and on site inflammation. All arthritics studied had noticeable reduction of joint stiffness.

Aromatic tumerones lowered cholesterol by 17% and triglycerides by 47% .Studies show improvement within a week. HDL, the protective cholesterol, improved by 29%.

Type 2 diabetics improved blood sugar levels and enhanced immunity due to tumorones ability to reduce oxidative stress on a cellular level. Specifically, beta cells and islet cells improved efficiency. 

Studies at UCLA about Alzheimer's showed aromatic tumerones clear amyloid plaque and metal toxicity  involved in progression of the disease. Aromatic tumerones reduce nerve inflammation in the temporal and frontal cortex of the brain most affected by Alzheimer's.
