White rice could raise risk of type 2 Diabetes16th March 2012
A study published in the British Medical Journal has claimed that regularly eating white rice could increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

But Catherine Collins, principal dietitian at St George's Hospital in London, said while the study – by Harvard academics – identified a link between higher white risk consumption and more diabetes in Asian populations, this was “absolutely not” the case in Western countries, because white rice was a relatively unimportant part of the diet.
