We all enjoy eating tomatoes but little that we know that their excessive intake can cause dyspepsia (agnimandya) which can cause piles. It can also pollute the Seven Dhatus and cause semen disorders.
Tomatoes disagree with starch and should not be eaten with starchy foods like Rice, Rotis and Potatoes.
Tomato salad should be consumed 15 -20 minutes before the main meal. If one does not have the fast metabolism, this can cause indigestion. The acidic nature of tomatoes can cause the duodenum to shrink which can lead to increased Pitta in the body.
