The Doctor Named an Unexpected and Insidious Danger of Oranges

If consumed in large quantities, oranges can even cause anaphylactic shock. Oranges are healthy and loved by many people, but in certain cases, this popular fruit can have a negative impact on human health.

“Oranges are very healthy, containing a large amount of micro and macro elements. One orange contains the daily value of vitamin C. Oranges contain flavonoids, which are substances that regulate the growth of the body and have an antioxidant effect,” says nutritionist Yulia Polovynska.

Benefits of oranges

Oranges lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, strengthen the walls of blood vessels, have an antipyretic effect, are used in the treatment of ulcers and wounds, lower cholesterol, and help to preserve youth and beauty longer.

The danger of the orange

However, the expert added that oranges, like any citrus fruit, are a strong allergen. If consumed in large quantities, they can cause allergic reactions and even anaphylactic shock. In addition, in case of gastrointestinal diseases, you should be careful about eating oranges on an empty stomach.

Orange is highly acidic, which can have a bad effect on tooth enamel. The risk of its destruction increases, so it is better to rinse your mouth after eating an orange or drink orange juice through a straw.
