Don’t eat an egg because it’s bad for your heart
Eggs do contain a fair bit of cholesterol but that doesn’t mean you have to skip them entirely. Remember, eggs are a rich source of proteins and contain Vitamins A, D & E. Indulge in them sparingly (like twice a week) and you’re good.
Eating mangoes can cause pimples and rash
Unless you happen to be allergic to mangoes, there’s no reason to fear. In any case, pimples and acne are usually caused by a bacterial infection and have no connection with any food group. And mangoes are actually good for your skin as they are rich in Vitamins A & E.
Avoid banana, grapes & chikoo if you’re diabetic
People with diabetes need to watch their carbohydrates intake, irrespective of where this comes from. The only disadvantage of a high-carbohydrate fruit is that you get to eat a smaller portion. So while you may be able to consume a cup or two of watermelon or orange, you can eat only half a cup of chikoo or grapes.
