    Most of my family members from the two previous generations died of heart disease or lung cancer by age 60 but I believe that was because most of them were serious smokers. My generation has broken that cycle. Hopefully none of us get stomach cancer. If we are ever told we can’t eat white rice we won’t know what to do

    If you happen to stumble across an apple fritter thread on your way to the bacon thread give me a call. That might be the ultimate adventure

    Perfectly understandable considering the fact that corn/maize came from the New World . Many Europeans don't eat corn because it is animal fodder . Their history doesn't include it as people food .

    Parboiled rice has less starch. I'm Asian. I love rice.

    I've always preferred the taste and texture of brown rice, wholemeal bread and muesli. Bit late for me to start worrying about health consequences, after forty years. My wife doesn't like any of these things and has spent time in Japan, so I eat plenty of white rice and bread products, too. Moderation in all things....

    I believe all the "converted" rice, like Uncle Ben's and "Boil-in-bag", Brown or White, is parboiled.

    My wife insists on putting all different kinds of rice dishes on the table from time to time. I can choke it down but left to my own devices I would never eat another bite of rice ever again. I've already consumed a short line railroad car full of the stuff in my lifetime just at Chinese food joints alone.

    One tablespoon full of white rice should be enough for anyone because no matter how long you chew on it, it just keeps getting bigger. In fact if it weren't for the sanitary concerns, you could have one guy chewing on white rice and spitting out half of the ever growing wad of stuff, have someone gathering it, and feed an entire country of starving masses.

    The real reason they put white rice in those little packages at weddings to throw at the bride and groom is they know if the newly weds will but gather the rice, they will never go hungry again, if you wonder how, see above.

    i think they both taste like rice, unless you add flavouring of some sort to either
