brown rice vs. white rice

I found this in Frances Moore Lappe's book "Diet for a Small Planet"

                          brown       white
protein                  7.5 g     6.7 g
calcium               32 mg     24 mg
phosphorous     221 mg     94 mg
iron                    1.6 mg     0.8 mg
potassium         214 mg     92 mg
sodium                  9 mg     5 mg
thiamin             0.34 mg     0.07 mg
riboflavin          0.05 mg     0.03 mg
niacin                 4.7 mg     1.6 mg

if you use enriched white rice, the numbers for iron, niacin, and
thiamin go up, but that's it.
