Soda

Soft drinks, especially those containing soda is very popular and sold in the market because many people like soda. But drink it too often and even almost any time will be able to kill you sooner or later. Chemical preservatives, calories and added sugars contained in them should not be underestimated because all of that is the source of all diseases that will come into your body, such as diabetes, stroke and heart attack.

The combination of Watermelon and Meat

In the food, you will often hear that watermelon is a fruit of “cool,” while the flesh (take the example of mutton) is included food “hot.” After eating meat, naturally you will look for a dessert that is fresh and can usually be obtained from watermelon, unfortunately, when taking both simultaneously, nutrition of meat can be drastically decreased and more serious again, stomach and spleen damage may occur in patients with spleen asthenia; even the patient’s energy will also be threatened.

Spinach and Tomato

Spinach and tomatoes together cause stones in kidneys. Both spinach and tomatoes are rich in oxalate that forms calcium oxalate stones with calcium. These stones are unlikely common in patients without kidney problems. But they can increase the chances of occurrence of stones in kidney patients.

Uncooked eggs and raw meat

Raw food can be exciting and delicious. But sometimes it’s just not worth the risk. Eating uncooked eggs and raw meat can put you at risk of salmonella. The bacteria likely to cause illness can even appear in normal-looking eggs, a really runny boiled egg for example.

Shots of alcohol

You may have played the drinking game centurion with beer where you have to down a 100 shots in a short space of time. Well, you definitely shouldn’t be doing it with anything harder, because it doesn’t take a hundred shots of strong alcohol to kill you – it only takes 13. Taking 13 45ml shots of alcohol at 40 per cent can be lethal according to research by Chemical Compound (though that’s 23 shots in the 25ml shot glasses we’re used to). That includes popular drinks such as Jack Daniels and Jim Bean. Though this number is very variable depending on weight, whether you’ve eaten and usual drinking habits.

Peanuts with beer or aerated drinks

Consuming beer or cold drink with peanuts is very common. But none of us knows that this combination causes dehydration in the body by lowering the Sodium levels. Dehydration can further cause dizziness, food poisoning or other stomach ailments.

Hot Dogs

The ballpark favorite is the leading cause of choking fatalities among children, so watch your little ones when they scarf them down.

Bananas and Milk

This combo is a heavy and a toxic blend. It is heavy for our belly and can slow down our mind. If you love it, make sure that banana is overripe and add cardamom or nutmeg to stimulate digestion.

Peanuts

One of the most common allergies is to peanuts. The most severe response is anaphylaxis, which can lead to severe constriction of the airways, shock, and even loss of consciousness. It is dangerous enough to cause death if left untreated, so know your allergies before stepping anywhere near these babies or their addictive friend, peanut butter.

These are some common food combinations in our daily life. Other than these, many combinations like starch and protein, veggies and meat etc. are bad too. It can lead to many issues like skin problems, fever and may even cause death. Most people feel energetic and they lose weight after following these simple food combining rules. So do follow this in your daily food routine for a healthy life.
