Benefits of whole grain rice over the other white stuff, lol

Just wondering exactly what the benefits are of whole grain versus the long grain processed stuff out there. I found a brand that won't break the bank (keep in mind we have 9 at home to feed, with one less teenager now, whew) so I have to be conscious of what I am spending. I cooked some up the other night and it seemed more grainy although I did like the texture more. I seemed to fill me up more than a processed rice grain would. Any one else have any ideas about this?

More fiber for one thing. OT a little, but when I brought my puppy home a few years ago, her breeder recommended cooked brown rice for clearing up diarrhea, and it did the trick. I think there are more nutrients of some sort in the whole variety, but my memory isn't that great.
