What eating items should not be taken together?

There are many foods and drinks that could cause medical problems if taken together. This article contains information about those foods and drinks that should not be taken together, so that we may retain the health, as health is wealth.

Guava, watermelon and water

Watermelon contains 90% - 95% water and to have more water on top of this is not good for the stomach. Likewise, you should not have water straight away after eating guava, as there is a chance of getting an upset stomach and cholera.

Possibility of being paralysed

Having bird meat with yoghurt, having Khichri[1] with rice pudding, having honey with butter, having egg with fish and having a bath straight after eating food to the stomach full can all lead to the possibility of being paralysed.

Pain in the large intestine

Having radish, yoghurt and cheese together, having dry, roasted salted meat with vinegar, having Sattu[2] after milk and rice and having goat meat with bird meat can all lead to the possibility of having Colic (a disease that causes pain in the large intestine).

Upset stomach

Having melon, garlic and honey together, having milk with sour items, having rice with vinegar, having meat with honey or milk, having melon and radish with yoghurt, having pigeon’s meat with onions & garlic and having partridge meat with cheese causes disorder of stomach and abdomen.

Fish and milk

Having fish with milk or cheese can lead to leucoderma (white spots on the skin).

Tea, yoghurt and fruit

Tea and yoghurt contain large amounts of acidity. When both of these meet in the stomach together, it weakens the digestive system. Similarly, having yoghurt and sour fruits together is harmful to physical development.

Cold and warm items

Drinking cold drinks straight after having warm tea or warm food is harmful to the teeth.

Possibility of a cough

Drinking water straight after drinking warm milk can lead to the possibility of a cough, whereas drinking water straight after Mithai[3] or mango or pickle can lead to the strong possibilities of flu, influenza and cough.

The continuous use of onions

Eating a lot of onions continuously can lead to spots appearing on the face.

May Allah Almighty grant us the ability to safeguard our health with good intentions!
