HEALTHY eaters using rice as an alternative to roast potatoes or chips could be in danger of eating arsenic if they don’t cook it properly, experts have warned.

The chemical has been linked to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and developmental problems, reports The Sun.

Rice tends to absorb arsenic more than other cereal crops and also takes it up from pesticides in soil and industrial toxins.

The latest advice comes after health officials warned burning potatoes, chips and toast could be linked to cancer.

Here’s all you need to know:

Is there arsenic in rice?

Arsenic occurs naturally in the environment, but rice tends to absorb it more than other cereal crops and also takes it up from pesticides in soil and industrial toxins.

New limits on safe levels of arsenic in food were set by the EU in 2016, although boffins have different views on what level is safe to eat.

How can you cook rice safely?

Experiments suggest the amount of arsenic in rice can be slashed by using different cooking methods.

Scientists claim rice should be steeped in water overnight to flush out the poison, and then it can be rinsed and cooked the next day.

Professor Andy Meharg, of Queens University Belfast, tested three different ways of preparing the dish and analysed the rice afterwards.

The first method involved two parts water to one part rice, but the second method — five parts water to one part rice with the excess water being drained and the rice rinsed — cut the arsenic level almost in half.

A third method — where the rice was soaked all night — found the arsenic levels were cut by 80 per cent.

The experiments were conducted for the TV show Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, which aired in Australia on Monday on the ABC.

Everything is Born out of Darkness Tags: Darkness Winter Solstice Womb Matriarchate Female Christmas Yule Wheel Midwinter Parsifal

Everything is Born out of Darkness

The Festivals and Rituals at the Winter Solstice often had the alignment to summon the Sun and to give her the strength to move on Her daily train from the East to the West, to illuminate and to warm us.

The Night of the Mothers
Our Anglo-Saxon ancestors, celebrated 'Modraniht' in this time of the Wheel of the Year - the 'Night of the Mothers'.
Because in this Night the Goddess gives in the most silent of all hours deep in the Dark Earth Birth to the New Sun Child.
Depending on the design, this Night of the Mothers is the Night on the 21th to the 22nd and respectively on December 25th.

There are a number of examples from pre-patriarchal traditions, which have as their center the worship of the Goddess as Mother of the Divine child.
The focus was always on the mother and not the child.
The 'mothers' were mostly those 'virgin' Goddesses, who, without any male intervention - in the course of the Seasons - with the aid of the cyclical force transformed Death into Life, Darkness into Light, Night into Day, Winter into Spring.

So Rhiannon gives birth to Her Son (... Sun) Pryderi, from Isis is born the Sun God Horus, Demeter gets her Holy Daughter Persephone, Selene gives Dionysus to life, who was regarded in ancient Greece as a Savior and a God of Fertility and Growth, the Celtic Goddess Rigani goes to the underworld to look for her son Esus, to bring him to a new earthly Life.
So, we are slowly approaching Christianity, in which, of course, also a Virgin Mother Goddess brings a radiant young child into the World.
Parsifalrain, December 25, 2016

The Dark force is all along understood as Feminine, Maternal.
Whoever rejects the Darkness, also rejects this Female primordial energy which provides a sense of security and protection, out of which everything arises.


The celebration of the Winter Solstice, but just in spiritual and religious circles has often a strange touch - 'finally, finally, the Sun gains power to light again'.
Hooray, the young God of the Sun Son is born.
Yes ... what from ?
From the velvety-soft Dark Womb of his Mother, but Her, we forget very quickly, because now 'the Sonny' is there, the new Light of the World, that soon will outshine everything.
What do we care there about the soft, dark, quiet, motherly energy of the Earth and Creation Goddesses ?


The Celebration of the Dark primal force
With all the joy of the newborn, regained Light, we should but the Winter Solstice not exclusively let wither the triumphant victory of the Light versus the Darkness, as is often done in Patriarchal traditions.
Here, the Night follows the Day, after the Summer comes the Winter, on the work follows the game.
In Matriarchal societies it is usually the opposite: the Night is emotionally prior to the Day, the Winter before the Summer, periods of rest ahead of activity.

How relaxing, to enter in this world of thoughts.
Also the old Mother of the Triads knew the principle:
So accrues Life when Nyx, the Darkness collaborates with Gaia, the Earth and Thethys, the primordial Sea.
Here is the wonderful interplay of the Powers of Creation - the flowing and the earthy Goddess and plenty of rest and Darkness, so that everything can prosper well.
Because the Darkness was long before all others, and from her everything has arisen.

Everywhere in the Universe is Dark, the plants can only grow, because they come from the Darkness of the Earth, the animals and people come out of the Dark safety of the Womb.
Just in some esoteric-psychological-religious approaches, but it is considered Light as good and Dark as evil.

These thoughts we should just check at the Winter Solstice
A Ritual at this time of Year is only going well when the Great Darkness is celebrated, honored and is this original condition, primitive state felt - in which all the Potential is present, available in this pause (hold), the sober-down of Nature, the withdrawal in the inner-most Core.

Is, in contrast, the Winter Solstice primarily designed as a Light Ritual, then it may deform the Ritual's mystery of the Feast easily.

Of course, the beginning of Winter means the astrological Turning Point from Dark into Light.
But to celebrate and cheer only the re-birth of the Light, without wanting to deal with its origin in the Bosom of the Darkness would be the wrong approach.

This mismatch conveys at our pre-Christmas activities, find expression in the Christian Christmas-rites with its focus on the Birth of Jesus.

The often tough, dark, foggy, cold weeks before the Winter Solstice have become a joyfully expectant Advent season, with great activity.
Therewith, more and more the perception of the spiritual peculiarity of the darkness got lost.

Many want this Darkness in November and December to pass as quickly as possible, want to banish just like pain, sadness, loneliness from their life (with a pill).

Who's but utilizes this time around the Winter Solstice in awareness to immerse in this quality can therefore also brace oneself for 'darker and colder states' of his own Soul and, prepare like a Plant, which extracts the power of the Root from this Darkness and Silence.

A small window into infinity opens here.
Everything can rest, all is well !

Infant found in a barn  - the police and youth welfare office to investigate
+Carpenter from Nazareth and mother of minor arrested+

BETHLEHEM, JUDEA, December 24, 2016 dppa-Reutters
In the early hours of this morning, the authorities were alerted by a concerned citizen.

He had discovered a young family who lives in a barn.
On arrival, the officials of the social service, which were supported by police officers found that an infant, wrapped in strips of cloth that had been placed by his 14-year-old mother, a certain Maria H. of Nazareth, in a manger.

In the case of the arrest of the mother and child, a man who was later identified as Joseph H., also of Nazareth, tried to ward the social workers.
Joseph H., supported by present shepherds and three unidentified foreign nationals, wanted to prevent the entrainment of the child, but was restrained by police.

The three detained foreigners who referred themselves to as 'wise men' coming from Eastern countries, were taken into custody.
Both the Interior Ministry and the customs are on the search for cues about the origin of these three men, who are apparently illegally in the country.

A spokesman for the police stated that they carried no identification, but were in possession of gold, as well as some, possibly banned substances.
They resisted the arrest, and claimed that God told them to go home immediately and to avoid any contact with official bodies.
The confiscated chemicals were sent for further investigation in the crime lab.

The whereabouts of the infant will not be announced until further notice.
A quick clarification of the whole case seems very doubtful.
In response to questions, an employee of the social services informed:

'The father is middle-aged and the mother definitely underage. We just check with the authorities in Nazareth, in what relation the two stand to each other'

Maria is in the district hospital in Bethlehem for medical and psychiatric examination.
She is to expect a charge.
Because she claims she was a virgin and the infant born of God, her mental state is taken under closer investigation.
In an official communication to the head of the psychiatry is written:

 

'I am not authorized to tell people what to believe, but if this belief leads to the fact that - as in this case - a newborn is at risk, we must classify these people as dangerous.
The fact that drugs, which were probably distributed by the attending foreigners, were on the spot is not helping to inspire confidence.
I am sure, however, that with all parties involved with the necessary treatment, in a couple of years can become normal members of our society'

 

Lastly, this info reached us:
The present shepherds claimed to conform that they saw a big man in a white nightgown with wings (!) on the back that would have ordered the shepherds to visit and let the newborn be a jolly good fellow on his birthday.

A spokesman for the drug squad (DEA) said:


'This is pretty much the dumbest excuse of besetting grass-smoking junkies I've ever heard'
