You might put on weight by eating too much rice. Some rice is genetically modified but scientists deny that there's any link to illnesses. We'll just have to wait another 20 years and see if they're right.

Yeah it's good for you it has a lot of starch in it just like pasta which will help you go to the bathroom easier and you will feel better and the long term effects are pretty positive!

Rice can be ok depending on your metabolism, but if you are predisposed to or have diabetes, white rice and white rice products are one of the worst things you can eat. It causes a rise in your glucose and it uses more of your insulin to... beat it up. 

As Lolita said, it can cause you to gain weight if your body isn't using the carbs from it appropriately.

I didI read somewhere that, because it has been a staple of Asian/Indian life for so very long, it is in their genes to utilize rice efficiently . I also read that diabetes is on the rise in China just as it is in the west, and with the poor food regulations (sanitation) and the pollution, which works against the body's system,  the rate of increase is actually higher.
Brown rice is much better for you if you can find it.
This being said, I am guessing you are an adult and if you dont want to eat the rice, or think the rice is not healthy for you, SAY NO. Theyll have to get over it.

It makes you FAT.

Dont believe me? Look at the waistlines of Puertorricans and Domincans.... We eat rice and beans at least once a day, usually twice.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
