I have joined my school's publication. I'll post it here even though it is not that correct.

Fake Rice: Contains Plastic Softener


     The alleged fake rice bought by a family in Davao City was found to be contaminated with a chemical used to soften plastic last Monday.

     The Food and Development Center discovered a chemical known as Dibutyl Phthalate present in the synthetic rice. Dibutyl Phthalate was used as a synthesizer to bind the starch made from ground powder to make the synthetic rice.

     Dibutyl Phthalate has no effect when eaten, but it is fatal when consumed in high levels.
The Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD) is conducting further research on the components of the synthetic rice.

     "Mag-ingat nalang tayo sa pagbili ng bigas. Kung alanganin kayo sa binili ninyo, huwag nalang kainin. Sa National Food Authority na kayo bumili," a representative of BFAD said.
