After breakthroughs in modern cultivation and growing methods, it has been understood that rice with arsenic levels as low as 40PPB are acceptable and safe for consumption. Now work is being done to map out areas where rice cultivation can be drastically improved. With significant time and effort the effects of inorganic products will indeed be reversed but only with a healthy dosage of exposure for the people to take notice in real time. With such efforts we can look forward to a healthier indeed.
