In our neighborhood sari-sari store, the sot of rice is now P46 per kilo. Never in my life have I seen the price of rice this high. I have heard that the National Food Authority (NFA) is already selling cheaper rice at P36 per kilo according to my neighbor. But why is this rice cheaper?

One of my relatives said that the NFA rice is no good… that eating it gives you stomachache and headache. When did eating cheaper goods the cause of tummy ache, I wonder. My father suggested that the cheaper rice were imported from the US where GMO rice are grown. He surmissed that the rice were “treated” with more chemicals than locally grown rice, perhaps why some people are experiencing some symptoms of headache and stomachache.

Do you think there is any truth in all of this?
