Is tomato the very first thing you should include in your never-to-eat food list? Dr. Pankaj Naram, healthy living expert and master healer, firmly believes that complete lifestyle change is a key to deep healing. He especially emphasizes diet change as a crucial factor for longer and healthier life that will help you ease your pain and improve your body function. Being aware that our environment and the flood of different information about food affect our final choice, Dr. Naram’s team reveals 5 most common myths about tomato consuming that are scientifically proved not to be true.
Myth 1: Lycopene Is What Makes Tomato Healthy
Although lycopene is thought to be responsible for tomato benefits, recent research showed that lycopene supplements might not be so safe during pregnancy. Moreover, according to recent scientific studies lycopene can aggravate the symptoms of prostate cancer and it should be consumed cautiously in patients who suffer from this disease. Lycopene may also increase the risk of bleeding and should be avoided by people with bleeding disorders.
Myth 2: Tomato Is Good for Patients With Heart Disease
Dr. Naram highly recommends you to avoid acidic food like a tomato. Due to their highly acidic nature, tomatoes can make the stomach produce excessive gastric acid (mainly responsible for food breakdown). After increasing the volume of acid, it is forced to flow up the esophagus, causing the symptoms. Even cooked tomatoes are not very helpful.
Myth 3: Tomatoes Do Not Cause Allergies and Infections
According to recent Polish studies, tomatoes contain a compound called histamine that is responsible for certain allergic reactions. It is proved that tomato can be the main reason for various illnesses such as hives, skin rashes, eczema, coughing, sneezing and an itching sensation in the throat.
Myth 4: Tomatoes Help with Kidney Problems
A report made by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states that individuals who suffer from advanced chronic kidney disease ought to limit their intake of potassium, a mineral tomatoes are very rich in. High level of potassium in the blood which is considered to be the leading cause of kidney disease should be reduced by avoiding tomatoes or anything made of tomatoes.
Myth 5: Diarrhea is Not Caused by Tomatoes
As per a report published by Longwood University, tomatoes are greasy, acidic vegetables, and you are strongly advised to avoid them during diarrhea.
The report says tomatoes can also be a source of an organism called Salmonella that is the primary cause of diarrhea.
