no........ nothing bad about it nor it is any significant disease.
Only problem comes with digestion of such uncooked rice to be processed by the stomach. If you eat more such raw rice, you may have pain or discomfort in upper abdomen (stomach region). Moreover, uncleaned and uncooked rice may may not be free from source of contamination. Cooking the same in a pressure cooker removes such possibilities. After all its a habit. THATS IT!!!!!!
