Eat WHITE Rice
 
I posted in this forum many months ago that you are better off eating white rice than brown because pesticides (which may be carcinogens and, as they're mostly neurotoxins, are speculated to contribute to the development of Parkinson's Disease, more common in agricultural areas) found mostly on the hull of the rice are stripped off when rice is milled from being brown rice into white rice. Now, more reason to eat white rice. Consumer Reports writes about arsenic toxicity being a problem with rice, the arsenic coming from both natural (it's indiginous to much soil) and man made sources. Here as well, the arsenic is mostly concentrated in the hull that's milled off when the rice is turned into white rice.

In addition, brown rice tastes like crap.

Brown rice is a bit nutty and goes very well in salads but not much else.

What about organic brown rice ?

Sure, I've had brown rice before.

What about organic brown rice? Not necessarily better. Arsenic is found naturally in many soils and is thought to concentrate in the hull of the rice because of the way rice is cultivated, in flooded fields that create prolonged exposure of the hull to minerals found in the soil that leech into the water. And it tastes like crap.

She may be nutty, but I bet you'd eat condolezza rice.

Me, I'd eat vanna white.

I hate brown rice. When I was doing my brown rice thing I had to make it fresh every day for me to even attempt eating it.

Now I just eat non-whole gran carbs and I just eat green vegetables, whole almonds and mix insoluble fiber into my gatoraid when im at home. I would not suggest doing the gatoraid thing during a match obviously lol.

Brown rice taste okay. And yes eating organic produce solves the pesticide problem.

ollinger 09-23-2012 08:55 AM

^^ but not the arsenic problem. It's intrinsic to many soils.

Power Player 09-23-2012 09:03 AM

I just dont eat rice at all.

El Diablo 09-23-2012 09:25 AM

^ You play with a Yonex and don't eat rice? It makes no sense.

mikeler 09-23-2012 10:17 AM

I'm a closet brown rice lover.

Yes this is new to me. I would like to see some documentation and further information on this.

Pay attention Povl!! I already told you the topic is reviewed in Consumer Reports, a source of unimpeachable integrity.
