I just read that people are advised not to eat hijiki because it contains arsenic and can lead to cancer. It is
a food I enjoy on occasion, but now I worry.

I've never heard of this, however, I use Sea Veggies in my stir fry's, salads and soups, and now I am wondering. Where did you hear of this warning?

Hijiki does contain non organic arsenic. I eat it in moderate amounts, and not daily, and am not worried. Check out (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijiki) the wiki article on Hijiki. It states that eating 4.7g of hijiki per day puts you at risk. The average Japanese is estimated to eat only .9g per day. Hijiki is so versatile and delicious, I really enjoy using it.
