How many is too many? Side-effects of overeating tomatoes

Apr 15, 2021 18:29 IST | By Editorji News Desk

They often say that excess of everything is always bad and for good reason. Whether it's our yummy gravies, soups or salads, we use tomatoes in just about everything. Tomatoes for the most part are extremely healthy and a rich dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene. They are loaded with vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K.  

However, there are also several side effects of overeating this fruit, which is often confused as a vegetable. 

ACID REFLUX  

Tomatoes are acidic and when over-consumed, they increase the acid amount in your stomach causing digestive issues. Overeating can also cause burning sensation in the bladder. If you have the problem of urinary tract infection, then tomatoes may aggravate your discomfort.  

KIDNEY STONES  

Tomatoes are rich in potassium. People who have kidney disease are advised to reduce their potassium intake as tomatoes can oxalate and turn into kidney stones. 

ALLERGIES  

People who are allergic to histamine compound may have an allergic reaction to tomatoes. This can cause eczema, rashes, itching, sore throat and swelling on the face. 

MUSCLE PAIN 

Tomato's histamine compound may cause joint pain and swelling. Some people also suffer from inflammation due to the solanine found in tomatoes. Too many tomatoes can also increase the chances of arthritis and muscle pain.

While there is little research on the maximum number of tomatoes you can eat in a day. Scientists say ideally one serving of tomatoes comprises either one whole regular tomato or six cherry tomatoes. So enjoy your tomatoes but spread out your intake throughout the week!
