Default 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.
