No matter where you look, a new food trends pop up everywhere online. Plenty of people are quite intrigued with these new ways of devouring their favorite foods, and fads can quickly draw you in. Unfortunately, not every trend out there is a home run. Here are five that can actually do more harm than good.
My Cinnamon Girl
Cinnamon is normally founded in breakfast dishes and desserts. Recently, people started putting this spice on nearly everything around them. While cinnamon is completely healthy, too much of it can do damage to your liver. Only use around one teaspoon a day in order to prevent a trip to the hospital.
A Burning Sensation
Liquid nitrogen has been mainly used to keep ice cream frozen over time. However, this clear liquid, which is normally at negative 320 degrees, poses big problems when it’s used in desserts. In 2017, one 14-year-old burned her hand while holding a snack called Dragon’s Breath at the Pensacola Interstate Fair. The snack was promoted as having “Fruit Loops dipped in liquid nitrogen” on the banner.
It Does A Body Good
People have been replacing plain milk with variants such as coconut milk and almond milk. While they’re a great alternative, these kinds of milk have no iodine. This specific nutrient aids the thyroid gland in preventing hair loss and creating necessary hormones. Giving your child milk without iodine can lead to them having lower test scores.
lease Don’t Eat The Daisies
Edible flowers can lead to some confusion for fans of desserts and cocktails. Some of these flowers seen on a dish aren’t supposed to be consumed. Since edible flowers and normal flowers look identical, many people will grab the wrong kind. Devouring a normal flower can lead to complications such as nausea, blindness, and tremors.
Drinking Your Disease
Water is one of the most important things we need to survive. There’s plenty of different styles to choose from at the store. Unfortunately, some people would rather drink water straight from the river on hikes. Raw water, which is completely filled with diseases, has led to the deaths of over 500,000 people yearly. Recently, companies have been selling raw water for $60 a jug.
