re: arsenic in rice.  it can be greatly reduced if you soak overnight, cook with extra water so it doesn't all absorb back in, when done cooking rinse with hot water.  https://www.bbc.com/news/health-38910848   

What do you all think: Is this enough to make it safe? 

You can also switch to things like buckwheat groats, oat groats, quinoa...

I personally avoid all grains, including rice.  Of course, to the best of my knowledge, the only grain containing significant inorganic arsenic is rice.

I switched from brown rice a couple years back to buckwheat groats. If you don't overcook the buckwheat it has a similar consistency to brown rice, makes a decent replacement.

I'm a big fan of buckwheat, it is low GI, and has way more magnesium than the average grain (if you want to call it that)... it also is very cheap and easy to cook.

Not true here, pretty expensive! A former fan (now restricted in carbs consumption).
