Posted June 10th, 2014 @ 7:57am
While some people believe you can’t have too much of a good thing, reasonable people know that moderation is key for almost everything in the world – especially certain foods.
Here’s a rundown of some foods to watch out for because you can actually "overdose" on them:
- Raw tuna – Eating just six pieces of raw tuna a week would result in dangerously high mercury levels.
- Soda – Excessive soda drinkers put themselves at risk of irregular heart function and erratic heartbeats.
- Carrots – Too much of this vegetable can actually make your skin orange.
- Water – Drinking too much water dilutes the concentration of sodium in your blood. So, use common sense and drink it throughout the day to keep things at normal levels. (MSN)
