    People think that brown rice is healthy because they are operating with the misinformation that higher fiber = healthier, and they don't understand that whole grains contain anti-nutrients that can not only cause digestive system irritation on their own, but can also bind to lots of other nutrients, rendering them unavailable.

    White rice has less nutrition on paper, when compared to brown rice. However, since it doesn't have the outer husk, it is not likely to cause digestive system inflammation. There is a reason that WHITE rice, not brown, is recommended for people with IBS and colitis and other inflammatory disorders.

      Because brown rice tastes like cardboard?

      Nightmare healthfood: tofu and brown rice stir fry. Nightmare on Food Street.
