Eat Brown Not White Rice!

I found this inside my brown rice box:

5 Reasons to Love Brown Rice:
-The fiber in brown rice helps promote regularity and lower the risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.
-People who eat whole grains like brown rice tend to be leaner and have a lower risk of heart disease than those who don't.
-Brown rice contains antioxidants, phytoestrogens and phytosterols that help protect against coronary disease.
-It provides a healthy boost of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants and phytonutrients.
-Grains are rich in carbohydrates--the body's main fuel supply--so we need a fair amount daily.

White rice has been processed, stripped of fiber, B vitamins and minerals, and sometimes bleached.  I think this one's a no-brainer.
