16. Brown Rice
Brown rice has a very good reputation, and indeed, quite a lot of health-promoting properties (e.g., slows fiber digestion and contains selenium, which speeds up metabolism).
However, it contains one more ingredient that should be used with caution when consuming brown rice. It is arsenic, which is carcinogenic and also causes heart disease.
For this reason, brown rice should be eaten sporadically – in no case it should be the basis of the diet. It is worth replacing it with a white counterpart, preferably with groats.
