Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Depending on what fruit is consumed, your history of illness, as well as what your general health condition is, consuming several types of fruit simultaneously can be dangerous or not.
In fact, consuming several types of fruit simultaneously, as long as it is not excessive, and also does not cause you to experience complaints, for example, heartburn, nausea, shortness of breath, vomiting, diarrhea, and so on is not dangerous. Consumption of a variety of fruits is actually good for meeting the needs of vitamins and minerals in your body which can make you fresher, fitter, and increase your immune system. Fruits are also known to contain rich in fiber which can help improve digestion, rich in antioxidants that can help prevent the growth of cancer cells, and various other health benefits.
However, several types of fruit are known to increase acid production in the stomach, for example citrus fruits, tomatoes, lime, pomegranates, apples, apricots, strawberries, pineapples, blueberries, and so on. Consumption of several types of fruit at the same time, especially in people who have a history of dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), should be avoided because it can trigger a recurrence. The symptoms of dyspepsia that need to be watched out are in the form of discomfort which predominantly appears in the solar plexus area, namely in the form of pain, nausea, stinging, heat, tightness, prop, and so on. Avoid excessive consumption of these fruits, either alone or simultaneously, especially on an empty stomach, or when symptoms of acute dyspepsia appear.
Another example is in people who are experiencing diarrhea. Consumption of several types of fruit, such as papaya, watermelon, and other fruits that contain lots of water often causes diarrhea to get worse. Not only that, sufferers of diarrhea can also feel nausea, stomach cramps, vomiting, and various other discomfort. Therefore, fruit consumption should be limited in this condition.
It can be concluded, consumption of any fruit in general is not bad for health. As for the recommendation whether or not to consume several types of fruit at once can vary depending on your general health condition. However, if you do not experience any complaints after consuming some types of fruit, then it is probably not dangerous for you. For more details, you should consult directly with a nutritionist.
I hope this helps.
