Gastroenterologist Neronov: eating a lot of vegetables can be harmful

Gastroenterologist Vladimir Neronov: actively consuming vegetables is not beneficial for everyone.

Vegetables are considered an indispensable element of a healthy diet, but even these healthy foods can lead to problems with the body. Doctor Neronov recalled in an interview with RIAMO that for many people certain vegetables can be allergenic, causing unwanted symptoms when consumed.

Also, the specialist should pay attention to the fact that even the healthiest foods in the world should be consumed in moderation. This principle is also true for vegetables. Gastroenterologist Neronov said that eating a lot of vegetables can be harmful.

“Excessive consumption of large amounts of vegetables, especially raw, provokes an exacerbation of existing problems and leads to dyspepsia, most often – bloating, colic and unformed stools,” – the doctor shared.
Neronov added that people with chronic gastrointestinal disorders should be especially careful when consuming vegetables. Often, problems with the stomach or other organ of the tract interfere with the complete digestion and absorption of vegetables, consumed even in acceptable quantities. The specialist advised that in cases where digestion “rebels” after eating vegetables, consult a doctor to understand how to shape your diet. Refusal of vegetables deprives the body of vitamins, microelements and other substances valuable for health, as well as fiber, which forms a healthy intestinal microbiome.
