Inside the mind of researcher Sarah Rothenberg

“My goal is to mitigate methylmercury exposure. Methylmercury intake through rice ingestion differs from fish consumption because fish contains beneficial nutrients.

It’s important that we continue this research because half the global population subsists on rice as a staple food.”
