We eat whatever we like without knowing their impacts on our health. Do you believe that food like mushrooms can be very dangerous for our health? But if eaten incorrectly, even some of the healthiest foods, like honey, can have a deadly effect on our health.
We want to share some healthy foods that can be hazardous for our health if we’re not extra careful.
Meat, poultry, and seafood
When we grill meat, poultry, or seafood, the high temperature makes the proteins in the meat change and it becomes dangerous for your health.
To avoid any health risks, you should cook your meat at a lower temperature.The low temperature will reduce carcinogen build-up in your food. You can also marinate the meat and flipping it frequently. This can help minimize cancer-promoting compounds.
You will be surprised, but honey contains a lot of toxins. After being collected, honey goes through a pasteurization process to eliminate these toxins. Eating unpasteurized honey can be very dangerous for your health, and it can cause headaches, dizziness, and vomiting.
Elderberry is a flowering plant and it has many health benefits and is pretty commonly used in jams, wines, and teas.
But, do you know that elderberry plant seeds and leaves are known to be poisonous and contain deadly concentrations of glycoside, a compound which produces cyanide.If they’re not strained properly or if they’re unripe when making jam or wine, elderberries can cause nausea, induce a coma, and even cause death.
If you keep potatoes in poor conditions, like damp or bright spaces, or if they sit out for too long, they might turn green and begin to sprout.
If the potatoes turned green and sprout, just throw away these potatoes, even if you cut off the sprouts.These potatoes may contain a poison that can lead to gastrointestinal problems like vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
Eating raw cashews can have a deadly impact on our health, especially to those people who are allergic to poison ivy.
We buy raw cashews at the store, but the truth is, they aren’t actually raw.They’re steamed in order to remove a chemical called urushiol which can also be found in poison ivy. If you found raw cashews out in nature, don’t even think about eating them, as little as a handful of raw cashews can seriously damage your health.
There are 2 different kinds of almonds: sweet and bitter. The bitter almonds contain large amounts of hydrogen cyanide and eating just 5 to 10 raw, can cause problems for adults and could have fatal consequences in children.
However, processed bitter almonds are safe to eat as long as all the hydrogen cyanide is extracted during the refining process. But, if you see an almond tree, don’t take the risk of eating its nuts.
