Does Swallowing The Seeds Of Guava Fruit Cause Appendicitis? Read To Find Out

As I was growing up, I had to encounter a lot of things; one of which was having to watch my best friend suffer from appendicitis and also see him walk around healthily after the surgery. Then I had this phobia for anything related to surgery but after the incidence, I decided to study further about appendicitis and in this article, we are going to go through some of the things I came up with.

There is this age long belief that swallowing the seeds of a guava fruit can actually accumulate in the appendix; a worm like makeup of the human body that is usually 3.5inches long at the top of the large intestine. It plays an important role in the body of adults and boosts immunity in babies. That been said, swallowing guava seeds according to the popular belief by people might not be entirely safe considering the fact that seeds need to be chewed for them to assimilated by the body.

Not chewing the seeds of fruits can actually cause little problems for you but it has not been proven scientifically to have any link with appendicitis. Appendicitis is the inflammation of the appendix due to bacteria buildup, food buildup, faeces and other particles. It has no cause and can always suffice at anytime coupled with the fact that it has no prevention. All you have to do is be careful while eating fruits, so you don’t swallow the seeds wholly. Chew the ones you can chew and then go on.

Swallowing seeds of guava doesn’t cause appendicitis as many believe. This is a mere myth and It’s important we all get this information because educated people shouldn’t portray ignorance in anyway.
