Carrots contain the beta-carotene pigment, which our bodies turn into vitamin A. An excess amount of the vitamin may lead to carotenemia, a condition that gives a yellowish color to our skin.

2. Kombucha

There are a lot of discussions regarding the health benefits of chia seeds. However, it should be mentioned that the omega-3 in chia seeds is more difficult to be absorbed by our organism than the one found in salmon fish, for example.

So… What do you think? Is it OK to overconsume these foods in our daily life, or should we be aware of the risks?
