Okay I have a question. This morning I come downstairs and enter the kitchen and my sister tells me that my mom has noticed that I eat rice on a daily basis (1-2 cups). She tells me that white rice causes rickets...WHAT!? Anyway, I look it up online to see if it does. Found nothing, well except a study of Asian women who are getting rickets for becoming Muslim and lack of vitamin D. I kept thinking, surely people who eat rice daily wouldn't get rickets as long as they get enough vitamins and minerals throughout the day. On this lifestyle, it shouldn't be possible unless you're not getting enough calcium, vit D, and phosphates. White rice alone shouldn't cause rickets.
Anyone know anything about this?
Talking about other grains I particularly like buckwheat (apparently a pseudocereal). Raw buckwheat groats take about as long to cook as white rice.
Hmmm I'll have to get some when I go to Walmart and give it a try :) thanks Peter.
