Thanks for query,
Eating raw rice is a habit not seems to be hereditary.
If consumed in small quantity it does not give you any complication but when taken in large quantity it may disturb your intestinal flora or peristalsis.
so control your self for not to consume it.
Take more iron or vitamins in your diet.Take intra venous iron preparation.
Do meditation or yoga.
