Can't say that there is really anything wrong with brown rice. Its very starchy so it should help provide you with carbs for the day and it also is pretty rich in minerals and B-Vitamins. A lot of people in the paleo community avoid it because... (more)

No. People as little as a hundred years ago lost their teeth early. People of my Grandparents' generation looked forward to having all dentures. Old dental practices were bloody and painful. Go to the dentist.

Rice bran oil is popping up everywhere - is it a thumbs down from the Paleosphere? It is stable at high heat, but I suspect it has the same problems as 'seedy' oils. Avoid at all costs? I submit to the wisdom of the Jedi Masters.

Fats are on a continuum. Rice bran oil is about 33% PUFA, so it's better than something like soybean oil or corn oil but worse than beef tallow or coconut oil.

Coconut oil contains butyric acid and that component can oxidize and stink as does rancid butter. Exposure to water or water vapour can hasten this degradation.
