Who wants to live to be 120 anyway.

Although I prefer to have no arsenic or other chemicals in my food, I will frankly continue to eat the rice cakes and brown rice that I consume more of lately in lieu of other, more processed, foods. I am certainly in better health for doing so. It could also well be that by being in better health to begin with because of better diet, I am better able to deal with problems far down the road. But if not, at least I will have been much healthier for those many years.
