The brown rice I was eating still had the husk/she'll on the outside of some of the rice grains is this ok to eat?
No.: Meats have some transfats, but most are manmade. Transfats are made by hydrogenating oils, which turns them into solids (shortening).

How many servings brown rice a week safe 4 arsenic. Researched & says 1/2 cup/ week is recommended but i eat 2 cups but going to cut back to 1 cup.
I'd stop worrying: I'm familiar with these concerns and I think they're silly. Arsenic is all over the environment. Rice grows in flooded fields and this may be why it takes up more arsenic. The claims that arsenic in rice may be causing 4 extra deaths out of 100,000 people are based on dubious linear-risk claims ("I have a 1% chance of drowning in an inch of water").
