Brown Rice Syrup and Arsenic - Should you be concerned?

Arsenic is a toxic chemical that is often found in trace amounts in some foods... including rice and rice syrups.
One study looked at the "arsenic content" of organic brown rice syrup. They tested isolated syrups, as well as
products sweetened with rice syrup, including infant formulas.
They found significant levels of arsenic in the products, The formulas had 20 times the total arsenic concentrations
of the ones that weren't sweetened with rice syrup.
However, the FDA claims that the amounts are too low to be harmful. But keep in mind that the FDA also says
high fructose corn syrup and soybean oil is safe, so I would take their endorsement with a big grain of salt.
