Doctor In The House: Eating Rice to Fight Obesity?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Many of us cut down our rice intake when we want to lose weight. Because rice is a carbohydrate, it is often seen to contribute to weight gain. However, a recent study suggests that eating more rice could help us fight obesity. Joining consultant urologist, Dr George Lee, are Dr Masni Mohd, consultant endocrinologist, and Prof Dr Winnie Chee, president of the Malaysian Dietitians’ Association to discuss the findings and what it means for our diet.
