However, what most people don't know is the danger surrounding improperly cooked rice. This is because improperly cooked rice contains arsenic which interferes with the human productive system. Arsenic is toxic harmful to human health and has led to higher incidences of fibroids today.

Arsenic lowers progesterone levels and impairs ovulation. When ovulation stops it would cause a lot of problems. Eventually, continuous consumption could lead to death.

Improperly cooked rice also causes appendices. This has been a major health challenge in recent times causing many deaths.
