It is amazing how a deliciously sweet fruit just poke us with its prickly surface but can ruin our health. Pineapples has been the best fruits to most people in the world for many decades. Unfortunately, scientist have proven a major side effect in it.

Despite it's Sweetness, scientists have discovered that pineapple is the only fruit in the whole world which contains the enzyme called Bromelain.

Bromelain is an enzyme whb bich breaks down protein! Considering that 16% of the human body is made up of protein, mostly in our flesh, it means that Bromelain in pineapples can actually break down protein in our flesh, hence eating us from the inside!

Surprisingly, this is often used as a reason to explain why pineapple farmers have no fingerprints; constant physical interaction with pineapples has worn them off though, this is not scientifically proven yet, just a hypothesis!

However, as creepy as this sounds, the enzymes are thankfully destroyed by the acid in our stomach, so don’t worry, pineapples won’t actually pose much threat to your life!

However, pineapple's bromelain may help reduce mucus in the throat and nose, according to the University of Maryland . So if your cold has you coughing, try some pineapple chunks. Those with allergies may want to consider incorporating pineapple into their diets more regularly to reduce sinus mucus long term
