The FDA Is Now Advising Parents To Immediately Stop Giving THIS Food To Babies!

Although there have been serious health concerns about inorganic arsenic found in rice as a whole, and in particular in infant rice cereal, the rice industry has continued to deny the potential dangers.  As they have insufficiently lowered the levels of inorganic arsenic in infant rice cereal, which is one of the first solid foods introduced to infants, the Food and Drug Administration have issued serious warnings about severely limiting the amount of this food regularly given to most American babies.

Because infants are so small, they are regularly taking in 3 times the amount of rice most adults consume.  This is despite the fact that inorganic arsenic has long been known to be carcinogenic.  It is not only dangerous to infants, but to children in utero during pregnancy. In 2016 the FDA concluded from a great deal of evidence, that  high exposure to inorganic arsenic during pregnancy, resulted in children having significant developmental and cognitive deficits.

Although traces of inorganic arsenic are found in other foods, such as fruits and vegetables and grains, it seems that  the level of absorption in rice makes it far more of a potential health hazard.  The FDA recommendations for safe levels of inorganic arsenic in rice cereal (a mainstay of most infant’s diets at around 8 months) is being met at less than one half of the rice cereals still on store shelves.

The video you are about to watch from Consumer Reports, stresses the point that this arsenic level, although somewhat improved in infant cereals still remains unregulated in ready-to-eat cereals consumed by children and adults alike. It is their recommendation, that any rice-based food be severely limited or avoided completely until the FDA strictly meets the levels that will no longer pose such disastrous health risks.

The FDA advises that parents choose oat, barley, and multigrain cereals to avoid arsenic exposure.  After watching the video from Consumer Reports

Apparently You Should Never Throw Out Rice Water. The Reason Is Priceless!

The next time you cook rice for dinner, make sure to save the leftover water it was boiled in. Rice water, that milky white liquid you’re left with, is brimming with all sorts of vitamins and minerals that your body craves.

Japanese women have used it for centuries in their health and beauty routines to make their hair shine and skin glow. It’s one of the easiest and all natural ways to effectively moisturize and protect hair and skin, plus it’s super affordable and you get a meal out of it!

To get the most out of rice water, you should aim to use organic rice and distilled water. First rinse the rice off and then simply boil it, drain the excess water into a container, and allow it to cool. Now you can use it right away or pop a lid on and store it in the refrigerator for later use.

Below are some of the most common ways that people use it in their health and beauty routines: Facial cleanser and toner- After washing your face, soak a cotton pad in rice water and gently apply it all over your face and neck area.

This helps to even out skin tone, as well as smooth and tighten it, and your skin will feel soft and moisturized. The antioxidants and B vitamins in it help slow aging and protect skin against the harmful effects of UV radiation by preventing age spots.

Hair treatment- After shampooing and rinsing your hair, drench it in rice water. Massage it gently into your hair and scalp and allow this to soak for about 5 minutes. Rinse well with plain water and do this once or twice a week for best results.

The proteins in the rice water strengthen and fill in cracks in hair shafts, leaving you with silky smooth, shiny hair. Full body soak- Add some rice water to your bath, or place a ½ cup of rice in a muslin bag and drop that in the tub.

Sit back, relax, and soak it all in for at least 15 minutes. Taking a rice water bath is an excellent way to alleviate painful or irritating skin conditions, like eczema and rashes. The moisturizing and healing properties of the rice water helps to reduce inflammation and restore moisture to skin.

There are other ways to harness the powerful benefits of rice water, the three above are the most simple and main ones. Check out the video for more easy and effective ways to work it into your beauty routine.

VIDEO: He Pours Rice Onto This Black Table. But When The Rod Touches The Side MESMERIZING

You are about to watch a demonstration unlike anything you’ve probably ever seen before. A young man exhibits a kind of experiment in the video below, that has gone viral on YouTube, and I can see why.  He has a black metal square table, ( the size of a card table), upon which he randomly spills a cup of raw couscous (a Mediterranean grain somewhat like rice).

I wondered what in the world he was up to, when he takes out what looks like a cello bow, (which is made of horse hair and wood), and rubs the horsehair part of the bow along the edge of the black metal table.  The sound it makes at first has a slightly low tone, as he pulls it down the edge the random mess of couscous forms the most unbelievable geometric pattern!

He then messes up the couscous, so it is once again randomly spread around the black square, and then takes his bow and draws it down another part of the edge of the table.

This time the tone produced is higher pitched, and right before your eyes you will see the couscous move into a completely different pattern!  Known as the “Chladni Phenomenon”, he keeps drawing his bow at different parts of the edge of the table and each tone produces a different geometric pattern!

You will be nothing short of amazed at what you see in this footage, during which he explains how this “magic” occurs.

Man Squirts Food Coloring Into Cup Filled With Rice. When He Adds The Egg It’s Stunning!

Dyeing Easter eggs is a tradition in many households this time of year. Perhaps the most well known method is coloring eggs with a Paas decorating kit. It seems to be sold everywhere and contains color tablets, stickers, egg holders and even a little wire egg-dipper contraption that can barely hold an egg. The whole thing is very convenient but also filled with chemicals. There is an equally easy and convenient way to dye eggs that can be done with things already on hand and, most importantly, naturally.

All you need is hard boiled eggs, dry white rice, food coloring, cups and lids or some other type of covering. Be sure to use cups that are large enough to hold an egg with enough room left over to shake an egg around in. For an easy ‘lid’ you can secure the cup opening tightly with saran wrap. Begin by placing about 3-4 tablespoons of rice into a cup.

Drop in at least a couple of good squirts of food coloring (you can always add more later to get a darker or different color), and mix it up well with the rice. Now you can place an egg into the cup, secure a lid on top, and shake it gently around. You should be able to see the food coloring start to transfer from the rice onto the egg. When you like what you see, take the egg out and set it aside to dry off. That’s it!

Get experimental by using more or less dye and longer or shorter shake times to get different results. Its super simple and affordable to do, not to mention easy to clean up. Best of all, you can eat the eggs afterward since the coloring is only on the outside shell and no heat or chemicals are used in the process.
