Rice and heavy metals

This article is worrisome: rice, especially brown rice, concentrates heavy metals such as arsenic (a problem in parts of India) and cadmium (a toxic byproduct of heavy industry in China).

But I worry about mercury
We are downstream from our city dump site, and no one properly disposes of the newfangled light bulbs, which contain high levels of mercury.
