eating more tofu has these hazards!
first, promote gout attack.
tofu contains more purines. Gout patients with abnormal purine metabolism and patients with increased serum uric acid concentration, eating tofu more easily leads to gout attack.
second, promote arteriosclerosis.
soybean products are rich in methionine, which can be converted into cysteine by enzyme. It can damage the endothelial cells of arterial wall, make cholesterol and triglyceride deposit on the arterial wall, leading to the formation of atherosclerosis.
third, increase renal burden.
under normal circumstances, most of the plant protein that people eat into the body is metabolized and finally becomes nitrogen-containing waste, which is discharged from the body by the kidney. In old age, the ability of excreting waste by the kidney is reduced. At this time, if we do not pay attention to diet, eat a lot of tofu, and eat too much plant protein, it will increase the nitrogen-containing waste generated in the body, increase the burden on the kidney, and is not conducive to health.
fourth, leading to iodine deficiency.
soybeans used to make tofu contain saponins, which can accelerate the excretion of iodine in the body. Long term excessive consumption of tofu is easy to cause iodine deficiency, leading to iodine deficiency disorders.
