THE nutritious and mineral-rich brown rice should be the staple food of the younger generation in efforts to realise the Government’s aim to produce world-class athletes. 

Datuk Seri Syed Razlan Syed Putra Jamalulaill (BN-Arau) said the Government should study implementing the food programme of consuming such rice to produce a generation with high mental resilience, which is tough and healthy. 

The Government should emulate Japan which had succeeded in producing a younger generation which was strong and resilient through its dietary control programme. 

“At one time, Malaysia was on par with Japan and South Korea in sports, especially in football, but now Malaysia is left far behind.  

“Malaysia’s name is no longer mentioned by its opponents in the international sports arena,” he said when debating the 2005 Budget.
