High Consumption of Rice Linked to Lower Level of Obesity, Globally
A new study from Japan finds that in countries where people eat significant amounts of rice have lower levels of obesity.
For the study, the researchers examined data from 136 countries. They found that those countries where people ate on average at least 150 g of rice per day had significantly lower rates of obesity compared with countries where people ate less than the global average amount of rice which was around 14 g daily.
Lead researcher Prof. Tomoko Imai comments: “The observed associations suggest that the obesity rate is low in countries that eat rice as a staple food. Therefore, a Japanese food or an Asian-food-style diet based on rice may help prevent obesity.”
