A World Bank – FAO study claims 8% to 26% of rice is lost in developing nations, on average, every year, because of post-harvest problems and poor infrastructure. The rice accumulates more arsenic than most other food corp where soil or water sources are contaminated with arsenic. Production and consumption of rice is estimated to have been responsible for 4% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
