I'd like to know what the safe amount of arsenic exposure is during pregnancy. Are women with celiac more at risk of pregnancy complications due to the high amount of gluten free rice products they consume? If yes, how much higher is the risk? Perhaps a prospective study using dietary questionnaires comparing celiac vs non- celiac pregnant women could provide data on the different levels of exposure. Urine or blood samples could also be collected from the two populations to see how much more arsenic celiac women are being exposed to. Outcomes could then be observed and compared.
