U.S. study suggests: "Eating more brown-rice and other whole grains instead of white rice may help reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes"

A new study from researchers at Harvard reports: "Americans who eat two or more servings of brown-rice a week reduce their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by about 10 percent compared to people who eat it less than once a month"

The process that produces brown-rice removes only the outermost layer, the hull, of the rice kernel and is the least damaging to its nutritional value.

Brown-rice is an excellent source of manganese, and minerals, selenium and magnesium

The milling and polishing process converts brown into white rice and destroys:

90% of the vitamin B6,

50% of the manganese, half of the phosphorus,

60% of the iron, and

all of the dietary fiber and essential fatty acids
