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.

Bad Breath
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
According to research, red meat and processed foods consumption has a negative impact on body odor attractiveness.

Gas, Flatulence, Abdominal Bloating
Most foods that contain carbohydrates can cause gas. By contrast, fats and proteins cause little gas. Foods that commonly cause gas are:

  • Raffinose containing foods - beans, cabbage, broccoli, asparagus, whole grains
  • Lactose containing foods - milk, cheese, ice cream, salad dressing
  • Fructose containing foods - onions, artichokes, pears, wheat
  • Sorbitol containing foods -apples, pears, peaches
  • Starches - potatoes, corn, (Rice is the only starch that does not cause gas)
  • Foods high in fiber - oat bran, wheat bran

  • Water-melon / Melon / Cranberry juice / Cucumbers / Asparagus / Eggplant / Anise / Lemon / Cabbage
