We purchase about 25 lb. of rice a month and it is contained in what is known as a "rice box". In order to maintain the rice and to keep pest's away, a large bulb of garlic is used, it is wrapped in a single piece of cheese cloth and it is tied to a string and placed in the container. It has to be changed every month or so. Once I forgot and when there was about 4 lb. left in the container (it holds 55 lb.) I noticed that it was infested with bugs, little black ones with legs and little white worm like bugs. In sight of this I decided to try an experiment involving food. I removed the rice from the container and bagged it up. Proceeded to clean the container completely and let it dry.
As some of you may have guessed, I consumed the rice pest's and all over a period of 5 days. Having spent 10 years in the Army and being in as many counties I have consumed worse. I have tried it boiled, fried and steamed. I would suggest having plenty of garlic powder pepper and any thing else spice wise you like, because it seems like (mental attitude) it taste better even though I could not tell the difference in taste. And someone said that there are bug parts in everything we consume. I feel fine and have not noticed any change in my health. The first time was a bit hard to take but I managed to keep it down and everything was fine. I think it all boils down to knowing what you are eating. I figure I know I can do it now if and when it comes down to it.
