what is the harm of excessive consumption of tofu?
bean curd is recognized as a good health care product. Proper consumption of bean curd is good for human health. However, tofu is not more good, excessive consumption of tofu will also harm health, mainly in the following aspects:
lead to iodine deficiency. Soybean contains saponin, which can prevent atherosclerosis and promote the excretion of iodine in human body. Long term excessive consumption of tofu is easy to cause iodine deficiency, resulting in iodine deficiency and dyspepsia.
tofu contains protein. Eating too much at one time will hinder the absorption of iron, easily lead to protein indigestion, abdominal distension, diarrhea and other symptoms.
promotes arteriosclerosis. Methionine in soybean products is converted to cysteine under the action of enzyme. Cysteine can damage the endothelial cells of the arterial wall, easily make cholesterol and triglyceride deposition on the arterial wall, and promote the formation of atherosclerosis.
promotes the decline of renal function. In the old age, the ability of excreting waste by the kidney will decrease. If a large amount of tofu is consumed, it will increase the nitrogen-containing waste generated in the body, increase the burden on the kidney, and further decline the renal function, which is not conducive to health.
