White rice versus Brown rice and we’re telling you which Is better for your health?

Brown rice vs white rice

We Indians just can’t get enough of rice. But for a balanced diet, we need to make the right choice between brown and white rice. Read on to find out which one is the healthier alternative.
Who does not like a generous serving of vegetable fried rice, or one-pot meal of Rajma chawal on a Sunday afternoon? Rice is an integral part of Indian households, and it is almost impossible to give up on the grain of our favorites, but we can always choose healthier alternatives – is not it?

To begin with, both white and brown rice is a rich source of carbohydrates and protein in small amounts. This is where the difference lies- brown rice is a whole grain, whereas white rice has the bran and germ removed. How is this, you may ask?

A whole grain contains all parts of the grain that includes fibrous bran, germ, and endosperm-rich nutritious carbohydrates, thus, clearly make nutrient-enriched brown rice. And in the case of white rice, the most nutritious part of the grain – the bran and germ are eliminated, lowering the nutritional value.

And what about nutrition?
Approximately 100 grams of cooked brown rice is packed with 1.8 grams of fiber, while the same amount of white rice accounted for only 0.4 grams of fiber. In addition, brown rice also provides you with more vitamins and minerals compared to white rice.

Enriched with fiber and antioxidants, red rice is not a source of empty calories, and carbohydrates, such as white rice is not.

However …

Brown rice contains higher amounts of phytic acid antinutrient, and arsenic, toxic chemicals. antinutrients These are plant compounds that can reduce the potential for the body to absorb certain nutrients. And in case these antinutrients consumed regularly over a long period of time can cause mineral deficiencies.

On the other hand, arsenic is a heavy metal naturally present in the environment and may increase in some areas due to pollution. It is present in significant quantities in the rice and padi- based products, and toxic heavy.

Prolonged and regular consumption of arsenic is said to increase the risk of chronic diseases including cancer, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes Brown rice contains more of arsenic compared with white rice, which means you should consume in moderation!

The impact on blood sugar and type 2 diabetes risk
Brown rice is rich in magnesium and fiber, both of which contribute to stabilizing blood sugar levels. grains such as brown rice said blood sugar levels, thus reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.

However, white rice consumed in high quantities has been associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, as evidenced by several studies. This is because of a high glycemic index (GI), which measures how quickly a particular food raises blood sugar.

GI brown rice is 50, while white rice is 89, which means the rate of rising in blood sugar that the latter is much faster than the others!

Red rice can also lower cholesterol
Brown rice is also associated with an increase in HDL or “good” cholesterol, and lower total and LDL or ‘bad cholesterol’. Lignans and plant compounds found in red yeast rice lowers the risk of heart disease because it reduces the amount of fat in the blood and reduces inflammation in the arteries.

In addition, eating chocolate instead of white rice helps in weight loss, and lower body mass index (BMI).

So, what’s the verdict? Brown rice takes the lead when it comes to winning the battle of health and fitness. But remember, moderation is key!

How did this work?

With IOS 13.7, if you opt into notifications, the iPhone can determine when you are less than six feet from other people with your phone swapping encrypted token. The system then sends a Bluetooth beacon and listen to them but no longer need an application for this. If anyone you come in contact with a positive test and then, you will be notified.

In case you do not have an official public health authority app installed, the system will prompt you to download it and advise on the next steps that must be taken. You can use the app to report if you are diagnosed yourself and with your consent, your beacons will be added to the positive diagnosis list. Your identity will not be shared with anyone.

Apple’s iOS 14 rollout

Importantly, these notifications are entirely based on whether you opt-in for them or not, you don’t have to do it if you don’t want to. Both your location and identity not shared.

Why India too needs to celebrate Women’s Equality Day

Over the years, Equality Women’s Day has come to be recognized globally as an important milestone to recognize the fact that women are treated differently in all areas of life, including homes and workplaces. women’s issues such as safety are concerned, the same wage, sexism, and health often brushed under the carpet. It is not hyperbole to say that equality for women does not exist even in theory even in the 21st century.

India gave women the right to vote because git Independence but that is where the effort to create an equal society for them seemed to wane. Apart from this right, women do not get a lot of noise in Parliament and subsequently, Rajya sabhas and Lok sabhas have some women who represent a large part of society that is often marginalized by the patriarch.

We need to celebrate Women’s Equality Day in India to recognize that there is an endemic problem when it comes to the equality of women in our country. There are countless incidents in which women are still treated unfairly in the name of ‘tradition’, ‘culture’, and ‘decency’ by a patriarchal society and this needs to change quickly.

If we strive to be a civilized society, then the change must come from all walks of life. The effort needs to be put in our homes, offices, public places and the House if we really give women the basic right of a chance in life – Equality.

Women Equality Day: Poem

Equality and Vision

Self-respecting we stand,
Where once we did hunch over
With guilt, second-prize ribbons and a
Countertop lined with ingredients to cook.

We stand tall in the glow of securing the
Right to vote, as we step toward visions of
Our equality with the muscular forces –
Let’s see the vision soon without wearing glasses,
Even within home walls where cameras do not go.

There is still work to do, as we strive for
Equal pay and we are haunted by the
Memories of physical and emotional abuse,
From past years, last months and this morning.

There are bodies that choose to chain us down.

We speak up louder with each day that passes,
Striving to reach a volume that cracks windows of
Disregard. We do not pass on opportunities to
Honor and represent the women who
Have brought us to the path we travel today.

We thank these women, we step into their footprints, and
We stretch the size of their shoes a little more with
Each day that passes.
I hope that we honor them well.
