Question What's the effect of eating uncooked rice?

Hi everybody,

I'm just new in here, but I would like to know the effects of eating uncooked rice. I have here my bestfriend who is so addicted in eating uncooked rice, I tried to stop her but she can't help it especially after meal. Will anybody help me understand what the risk of that. If she can't eat uncooked rice she will vomit the food that she ate. What shall I do to help her?

It's mhe,

Sponsors Lightbulb

Well supposibly it expands in your stomache which is why at most weddings they discourage it because various birds eat it and supposibly die from the rice expanding and exploding the stomache.
Honestly, I don't know how true that is.

The uncooked rice will do her no harm. However, it sounds like your friend has a more serious problem. Possibly bulimia. Is she eating the rice to make her stomach feel full? Then if she doesn't eat the rice, she makes herself throw up (purges). Bulimia is a serious disorder requiring the intervention of a psychologist who specializes in eating disorders.
If I have mis-understood your post, please disregard this and accept my apology.

Kissa, it is true that birds die from uncooked rice, it happened near my house be (well, behind the stores, that was 5 minutes away from me) The restaurant there, was throwing out amounts of uncooked rice to get rid of the birds.. how sad
