Can rice actually kill birds?

07-19-2018


Today’s Video of the Day from the American Chemical Society explores the question of whether rice is actually deadly to birds.

The researchers found no evidence whatsoever that rice can harm birds. Even instant rice – although it was not a popular choice among birds – did not have any negative influence on the animals.

The results of the study suggest that there is no reason to ban rice from being thrown at weddings.
