That can be really dangerous.
Fruits and vegetables are healthy and good for your body, right? But did you know that if you eat too much of certain fruit and veggie types you can turn the healthy effect into the opposite?
Here are some with which you shouldn’t exaggerate.
Oranges and tomatoes
You have to be careful with oranges and tomatoes as they contain a lot of acidity. Over time, consuming too many of these can damage the mucous membranes of your esophagus. It is advisable to limit the intake of oranges or tomatoes to a maximum of two servings a day.
Tuna fish from cans
Tuna is delicious in sandwiches or salads but you should not eat too much tuna, as this can lead to increased mercury levels. In tuna, the mercury concentration is higher than in other fish.
Excessive intake of mercury can cause vision and speech disorders, deafness, lack of coordination and muscle weakness. You should not consume more than five cans of tuna per week.
Tofu lovers take care! Soy (products) may help to control cholesterol and blood pressure, but only if consumed in moderation. In large quantity it can have a negative effect on your body. Thus, soy can reduce the absorption of iron, so it can lead to iron deficiency.
In addition, soy contains estrogen-like compounds. These can lead to proliferation of the endometrium contributing to uterine cancer.
Spinach is versatile and very healthy when eaten in moderation. It is a good source of protein, rich in fiber and contains many vitamins and minerals. However, spinach also contains many oxalates, similar to rhubarb oxalic acid. This can lead to to kidney problems (stones).
