Gari And Mango, Is It Dangerous? by seuen: 12:58pm On Apr 03, 2008
I've been warned on several occassions never to soak Garium Sulphate after eating Mango and I'm yet to find out what consequences there are in doing so. Has anybody done this before? If so, what were the side effects?

I heard the same too when i was younger, I guess they just don't go well with the digestive system. shocked

I've heard this myth too when I was younger. But now that I am older, I think there is nothing wrong eating such at the same time. cool But rather it sounds unusual to eat such.

I tried it before and I m still alive as you can read.

I've heard alot about this myth but can anyone provide proof( a person who actually died from eating Gari and Mango in one sitting).

Do you think any combination of any sort of food or fruit is dangerous. , Who or which doctors or dietician decides which combination is good or bad?
, until i see or hear someone die of eating something which is edible and proved by autopsy, no way would i believe any food is poisonous.

yea yea,everybody has heard about dis myth,but there is a kinda misunderstanding somehow,drinking garri after eating mango is not dangerous,wat is dangerous is putting SUGAR in that garri and drinking it,after eating mango

Re: Gari And Mango, Is It Dangerous? by iniguy(m): 7:34am On Jun 30, 2009
First time i hearing this! I know of Coke + mango = deadly combination grin
Re: Gari And Mango, Is It Dangerous? by afix(m): 12:55pm On Jun 30, 2009
Well it is just a myth and indeed the one i take as the real story is that story that stated clearly that after those school children take the mango,the gari which they take next was in short containing poison.HOW CAN ONE FORM OF SUGAR(RIPE MANGO) + carbohydrate(gari)=dead OR TATARIC ACID(UNRIPE MANGO)+cabohydrate(gari)=INSTANT DEAD
THIS IS INDEED A MYTH
Re: Gari And Mango, Is It Dangerous? by dominique(f): 3:15pm On Jun 30, 2009
it might be a myth but that doesnt mean it doesnt have some devastating effects.i've unknowingly tried it before; ate eba then mango shortly after. i had a terrible indigestion all night. . .thought i was actually going to die embarassed sad

Re: Gari And Mango, Is It Dangerous? by Gekko(m): 2:59pm On Jul 01, 2009
Wow! listen to grown men and women still believing in concocted myths.  In America ive seen people eat the most absurd combination of foods and people don't die from it, for instance Pineapple+ HAM+ Mozzarella cheese-tomato sauce+ bread consumed all in one sitting.
Re: Gari And Mango, Is It Dangerous? by Gabry(f): 3:31pm On Jul 01, 2009

Than the following day I just read the news about it. The outdated news that is
Re: Gari And Mango, Is It Dangerous? by olaleye101: 2:13am On Jul 03, 2009

Re: Gari And Mango, Is It Dangerous? by Naturez(m): 3:10am On Jul 03, 2009
Na wa oooo! Why we naija too dey fear death or sickness? Meanwhile, we dey among the disease carrying country in Africa. That thing no dey shake anybody,if anyone takes it and fell sick its coincident. I have done it several times when still kid,in fact i went to the extent of using mango juice (mango water) drink garri sef but, man pikin never die.

Its not good though hygienically,but black man no dey shake with such little mixture. What about people wey dey take over dose concussion of agbo,jedi etc?

You wey dey find scape goat,no try am o at your age now, because that compartment wey dey prevent young black man getting affected from such things go don weak for una body oo (I sure say you go don dis-virgin almost 100x) grin

Enjoy!!!
