Practice What You Preach for Arsenic, Chocolate, and Sugary Drinks. It May Not Make You Eat Less But You Will Read Food Scrounge News

Not too much on the bizarro front but plenty of discussion on arsenic in rice.  Just one more thing to worry about.  Or not – click on Food Scrounge News tab.

Don’t worry. Eat pizza and drink beer!


Injury update – xrays show ankle and fibia healing and in alignment. I’m getting (hopping) around better. Wrist is now in a soft brace, which is more tolerable than the semi-cast I was in previously.


  1. Arsenic in rice? Seriously? Still i dont eat rice at the moment – pearl barley for me – much lower in calories…

    • Yes, there’s been a back and forth from the health community whether arsenic exists in rice, and if it does, are the levels toxic? To me it’s another inconsequential thing to worry about. You are correct we should eat more barley. It just takes so darn long to cook.

I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
