Gluten-Free Diet Linked to HIgh Blood Arsenic Levels

A study of individuals who self-reported following a gluten-free diet found that they have significantly higher concentrations of total urinary arsenic and cadmium and higher total blood mercury than people not following gluten-free diets. The urinary total arsenic was nearly double among those on a gluten-free diet, compared to those not on a gluten freed diet.

Rice is a potential source of both arsenic and mercury exposure. It is possible that people who are avoiding gluten are getting excessive exposure to arsenic and mercury through higher consumption of rice-based products.

If you do not have properly diagnosed celiac disease or gluten intolerance, it is wise to consume a mix of starchy whole foods including gluten-containing grains such as wheat, barley, and rye.

To read the original study, published in the journal Epidemiology, click on the link below.
