There are many recommendations on food that benefit our health and are perfectly healthy for our body and in our daily life. However, this is not always as real as it sounds, in fact, it is proven that any food, however healthy, if ingested in excess, can cause harm to health, including water. Here we will tell you about some types of food that are believed to be perfectly harmless to our health but that it will be best to eat in moderation not to cause any harm.
- Tomatoes and aubergines: these fruits are characterized by containing alkaloid substances that contain psychotoxic properties that cause intoxications, headaches, vomiting and even hallucinations. For the case of the eggplant it is a little more controllable since, when they are skipped, these properties manage to be destroyed generally.
- Fibre: fibre will always be recommended by any nutritionist or doctor when we suffer problems in the intestinal flora, and it is necessary to consume it to maintain a good digestive system. However, excess fibre can cause blockages in the absorption of calcium from other foods, increasing risks of bone disease.
- Seafood: it is good to consume seafood because of its high levels of Omega 3 and 6 that provide and that are of great help to our health, the problem is that many of these shellfish are scavengers or scavengers, which absorb all types of contaminants which are in their path. And in the end becomes heavy metals that can be very harmful to your health. In addition, shellfish present purines, which are nitrogen-related molecules related to urea, which can form crystals of uric acid, causing gout disease.
- Juices: the fruit itself is much better than juice because the latter provides a large amount of sugar in the form of sucrose which, in the end, is divided into metabolism in the form of fructose and glucose. However, over time, the body may have deficiencies in vitamins B1 and B2 due to excess sugars, which, in turn, cause an insulin blockade, and can cause diabetes.
- Eggs: eggs are very tasty and nutritious, but in several studies it has been shown that the excess of this food can cause increases in cholesterol levels – not always bad, it should be clarified – but, if you lead a sedentary life and with a diet rich in eggs, obesity can occur. A diet of 6 eggs per week is optimal, although it varies for each person.
