Sierra Leoneans, Stop Cooking With Rotten Tomatoes, it Causes Liver Cancer

If you are a Sierra Leonean that fancy cooking with rotten tomatoes to get that delicious stew, well this post is meant for you.

What we consume is expected to serve as nutrients and medicine to the body as good health, they say, is wealth but one’s health can become a devourer through frequent medical treatment if not well-cared for.

Health, not well-taken care of might bring diseases and sickness if what we eat is not properly checked to ascertain its consumption worthiness.

Besides, what we eat defines our health status it is either medicine or poison to the body; it does no more or less.

We, therefore, owe our body that non-negotiable duty of taking adequate care of it by what we feed it.

Tomato, whether classified as a fruit (according to botanists) or as a vegetable (according to nutritionists), indisputably serves immeasurable nutritional value to man no matter what purpose it is used for.

One hardly can do without consuming tomatoes whether as fruit or vegetable in one’s daily meal.

Experts say tomatoes are the major dietary source of an antioxidant, a substance that protects against cell damage.

Tomatoes also contain Lycopene, which helps reduce the risk of heart diseases and cancer.

However, as important and nutritious as fresh tomatoes are to the body, they can be deadly to the body if the rotten tomatoes are consumed.

These ‘fallen’ tomatoes are visibly soft, leaking their liquid content as they decay.

Most rotten tomatoes also grow mold on their bodies and serve as an abode for worms and maggots too.

These worms are maggots or larvae of common houseflies which deposit their eggs when they perch on the tomatoes.

Maggot-infested tomatoes cause bacterial poisoning when consumed.

Mycotoxin is a toxic substance produced by fungi and it is capable of causing disease and death in both humans and other animals.

They are said to be naturally occurring toxins from molds that cause a variety of adverse health effects.

The body organs involved in the role of detoxification begin to fail in articulation and function when these toxic substances overwhelmingly become too much for the body to detoxify.

Some tomatoes sellers may argue that not all soft and wrinkled tomatoes are rotten and spoilt because some of these fresh tomatoes burst and get punctured as they are being packaged and arranged in baskets from the farm to the point of sale.

This argument is validly true. It is common knowledge that when fresh tomatoes are exposed to heat or high temperature, they become soft and subsequently burst.

However, it is important to state clearly that it is at this point that these fresh tomatoes are prone to infestation by houseflies which leave maggot and larvae deposits in their wake.

Special attention should be paid to the tomatoes we buy before slicing, grinding, or consuming them. It must also be noted that fresh tomato left for days may have become rotten without growing mold on it.

Some people think that rotten tomatoes which are cheap can be consumed after washing and heating. This is not true as toxins cannot be washed or killed by heating because mycotoxins are heat-resistant.
