You will certainly get sick if you eat nothing other than plain boiled rice. In olden days sailors used to get scurvy, that is their gums started to bleed their teeth fell out and people could not figure out what was wrong. The problem was they had no food on board that contained vitamin C. Then the ships started to carry onion, lemons, limes and other vegetables. This stopped the scurvy. There are other illnesses caused by the lack of vitamins and proteins. Even if people don't eat meat they should combine rice and beans for a balanced protein. As far as salt is concerned I don't know. You could do an internet search to find out.
