|Prawns + Vitamin C=Poison?|
|Jan 11, 2009 21:02|
|Last Sunday, I watched a movie called Deadly Delicious. In that movie, the husband had an extramarital affair with another woman. He thought his wife didn’t know but actually she already knew this. To revenge, she found that woman and taught her to cook delicious food for her husband. Sounds strange, isn’t? The wife taught that women to cook some food that were really good for her husband’s health. Then she cooked some food that could destroy his health after he came back. One of the dishes she cooked for her husband was fried prawns. This dish almost killed his husband. She knew that his husband had Vitamin C so that she cooked prawns for him. |
Why? Prawns +Vitamin=Poison. The arsenic pent oxide in the prawns reacts with vitamin C to produce arsenic trioxide, which is very poisonous.
I searched to confirm if it this was true. The result was not satisfying. Some one said “Yes” while others said “No”. So I am wondering if you guys can give me the answer.

|Vitamin C is a harmless vitamin whilst providing some benefits it is IMPOSSIBLE to overdose on, any surplus amount is simply not absorbed by your body.|

|I did a web search and came up with this post from the Internet debunking site called Snopes. |
It says that prawns + vitamin C does not equal arsenic poisoning.

Yes, you are right. Eating fruits after having seafood is bad for your digestion. It might cause dizziness, vomity, stomache and some other symptoms. To be more precise, you shouldn't eat grape, hawkthorn, persimmon and guava. If you really want to eat fruit, please wait for at leat for one hour.

|Bunch of old wives tales.|
I have eaten seafood and especially prawns all my life and we garnish our seafood with lemon juice and often serve it with fruit and also eat fruit salad and icecream for dessert.
We could list a lot more dangerous chemicals that are consumed everyday but the dangers to our health are continually ignored!!!!!
