I have never heard of this. Coming from a country where rice is the staple food, this comes as a shock.
Then hubby jokingly tell me something he read on the internet:
Why do the Chinese have slanted eyes?
One of the responses: Because they are constipated due to all the rice they eat.
Ok, so the rice causes constipation and constipation gives slanted eyes.
I don't know what to think about this. I'm not sure if this is scientifically proven. Saw these on internet with totally opposite views:
Eating plenty of rice will help you get more fiber into your diet. It is a fibrous grain that can promote bowel regularity and a healthy colon. A cup serving of brown or wild rice serves up to a 3.5 g of fiber, which is much more than you can get from white rice, which has 0.6 g of fiber for the same serving.
