Foods causing disturbing or embarrassing side effects


Can freshly harvested or just cooked food cause side effects? Yes. Food may cause side effects.

However, it doesn't mean that you should avoid the food represented on this list. Most side effects do not occur in everyone and they occur not every time you eat such food. And besides that, the significance of most foods (especially fruits, vegetables and even chocolate) outweighs the possible side effects they may cause.

Here is a list of disturbing or embarrassing side effects that may be caused by food.

These foods have odors which are picked up by the blood system and are exhaled through the lungs up for several days after a meal. These foods are:

  • Onions / Garlic / Cabbage / Curry / Alcohol / Dairy foods (in lactose intolerant persons) / Sugars


Body Odor

  • Fructose containing foods - onions, artichokes, pears, wheat
