Okay, so fruits and vegetables are generally good for you, but that doesn’t mean you should eat them blindly, believing what you’re putting into your body is good. There are many vegetables that have hidden properties that you’re often not aware of and some are even covered in pesticides as a result of modern farming. There is so much you need to know about fruits and vegetables, which is why we’ve drawn up this simple list of the top 11 fruits and vegetables that can be bad for you.
By all means, don’t stop eating these fruits and vegetables, but do be aware that either minimizing your intake of these particular foods, or buying organic, can be beneficial to your body.
The potato is probably the most versatile vegetable around, and while it’s delicious and filling, there’s a lot you need to know about it. For starters, it’s packed full of starch – this isn’t really a bad thing, but in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t really give your body much nutrition. In fact, there’s very little nutrition at all in a potato, given that it’s largely made up of water.
Given that potatoes are farmed on such a huge scale, they’re also often covered in pesticides, which can cause problems to our livers over long periods of time.
