Stop Boiling Your Meat With These 2 Ingredients, They Can Damage Your Liver.

We need to be careful with what we eat these days since there are many things out there that might harm important organs in our bodies if we are not careful. While searching the internet, I came across this health advice concerning two substances that people continue to use in their cuisine despite several warnings from health officials to stop using them.

I recently discovered that some people still use potash and paracetamol to cook, and many of them are unaware of the dangers of what they're cooking with. Those that use this Ingredient report that the potash and paracetamol tablet tenderizes meat and beans more quickly, cutting cooking time and conserving fuel. If you use this substance or know someone who does, please advise them to stop using it because it can destroy their kidneys and liver if they continue to use it.

1. Potassium

2. acetaminophen

Despite the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control's warning that the two could induce renal and liver failure, some Nigerians continue to use potash and paracetamol in their cooking.

Health specialists, dieticians, and medical laboratory professionals have cautioned about the dangers of such food enhancers to people's health, claiming that the chemicals in those items, as well as other unusual enhancers, cause massive damage to human organs over time.

Meanwhile, excessive ingestion of these chemicals may result in accumulation, causing serious and irreversible kidney damage and disrupting normal body functioning, potentially leading to death.

The use of paracetamol to tenderize meat and beans during cooking may be considered a cost-cutting measure, but it has grave and unprecedented health consequences, including liver and kidney failure. When the medicine is used in cooking, it is hydrolyzed or broken down into components, one of which being 4-aminophenol, a highly poisonous compound to the kidneys and liver.
