Cherries are an amazing fruit that has lots of nutrients but eating too much of it isn’t a good idea either, as proven by this 32-year-old lady in Chongqing, China.
According to Sina, the lady surnamed Wang was preparing to go to Wuhan for the Chinese New Year celebrations when she received two boxes of fresh cherries from her relatives and friends. Since there would be no one home during the holidays, she decided to wash the cherries and put them in two big bags so that she could eat them during her journey to Wuhan.
A few days later, Wang experienced severe stomach discomfort after she got off the plane and rushed to the bathroom in the hotel. She was shocked when she discovered that her poop looked “bloody” and red in colour. Her diarrhoea continued and she had to go to the toilet for more than 20 times in one night. At one point, it got so bad that she even fainted in the bathroom!
Her family was worried about her and sent her to the hospital the next morning where the doctor quickly ran some tests on her stools. However, when the results came back, the doctor was surprised to see that there were no big issues with her stools.
The doctor suspected that the “bloody stools” that raised the alarm could actually be caused by red pigments in the food that Wang had eaten and began to question her. It was then that Wang recalled she had eaten 3kg of fresh cherries for five days straight and before she got off the plane to Wuhan, she had eaten about 50 cherries in one go. That’s a lot!
She was diagnosed with acute gastroenteritis because she had eaten too many cherries that also caused her to poop more than 20 times in one night. The doctor advised the public not to eat more than 20 cherries in one sitting and to drink more water after that. In fact, the recommended daily fruit intake is only 400 grams per day, Healthline reports.
Since Wang had exceeded the recommended amount of fruits, it wasn’t unusual that she would feel unwell. Fitness Republic says that eating too many cherries can cause bloating, flatulence, upset stomach, inflammation or even respiratory problems. Of course, if you don’t overeat, cherries are great for your body so do keep that in mind!
Take note guys, and don’t overconsume fruits as it can be bad for you!
