Cancer, diabetes and many other diseases can be controlled by using local rice varieties whose medicinal value has been scientifically proven, Director General of Industrial Technology Institute (CISIR) Dr.Sirimal Premakumara said.

Based on the results of research conducted for more than 10 years using 25 varieties of local rice, a scientific research paper has also been published on the medicinal value of Sudu Heenati, Goda Heenati, Dik Vee and Masuran rice varieties.

Dr. Premakumara has told the BBC Sinhala Service that it does not seem that Sri Lanka as a country is taking proper advantage of these research results that have scientifically proven the traditional knowledge.
