Side effects of eating Passion Fruits
In as much as passion fruits are very healthy for the body, some people actually can be allergic to them. According to research, if you are allergic to fruits like Avocado, pineapple, tomato, banana, etc, it is important to avoid passion fruit or eat it but very little. This is because passion fruit pulp also contains a toxin called cyanogenic glycoside. This chemical can cause cyanide poisoning in high amounts which are not good for the human body.
