This is an area of significant concern

As the mother of a teenager with Celiac, this is an issue of major concern.  So much of the gluten free diet centers around rice and rice based products.  I also just read here about the increased levels of arsenic in fruit juice (especially grape and apple, my son's favorites).  Despite trying to utilyse a variety of flours when baking, rice is always the prefered option in my family.  It most closely resembles wheat flour.  Is there a difference in white vs. brown rice?
