Mutual destruction of Food:

1. Shrimp meat: Shrimp should not be eaten with some fruits. Shrimp is high in calcium, protein and other nutrients. Eating shrimps together with fruits containing tannic acid, such as grapes, pomegranates, hawthorn fruit and persimmon, will reduce the nutritional value of shrimp protein. Calcium and tannic acid when combined easily form an insoluble substance, which can cause upset stomach leading to nausea, dizziness, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and other symptoms. Following a seafood meal, diners should wait at least 2 hours before eating the aforementioned fruits.

2. Egg white: Egg white should not be eaten with saccharin, soy milk or rabbit meat.

3, Litchi:  Litchi is legendary among Ugur and Chinese cultures for the amount of nutrients  that it gives to newborn babies, pregnant woman, old  and weak people. It contains on average a total 72 mg of Vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit. A cup of Lychee fruit provides, among other minerals, for a 2000 Calorie diet, 14%DV of copper, 9%DV of phosphorus, and 6%DV of potassium. Lychees are low in saturated fat and sodium and are cholesterol free! However, It’s not good if one eats too much at a time. On average nine Litchi would meet an adult’s daily recommended Vitamin C requirement. We suggest that you eat no more than 0·25 Kilogram or ten Litchi a day.
