Tangerines, the world’s second-most popular citrus fruit, are known for their health benefits, including cancer prevention.
But their toxicity has led to a growing number of cases of liver and kidney damage, kidney failure and even death, according to a new report from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
The new findings, based on data from Israel, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Canada, and the United States, say Tangerina’s juice may be contributing to more than 700 cases of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and more than 900 cases of kidney failure worldwide.
The report, released Tuesday, said the most common cause of liver failure in Israel was alcohol.
More than half of those cases were attributed to drinking Tangerini, and some were even linked to excessive drinking.
The report says the consumption of Tangerinis can lead to a condition known as “toxic tolerance,” which can lead the liver to overproduce toxins, leading to increased disease progression.
The new study was based on the latest data from the WHO.
Tangerino, a Tangerin is the first fruit to be classified by the FAO as a cancer-causing substance, which is what makes it the second most common cancer-fighting fruit after oranges.
Tangerini is one of the most popular fruits in the world, with over 400 varieties available.
Tannin, the main flavoring ingredient, is found in the juice of several varieties, including Tangerinas and Tangerinos.
In its most recent update, the FAOs said it was aware of at least seven cases of cancer, but that it was not aware of any cases that have been linked to consumption of a single Tangerinian fruit, which could explain the increased cases.
“Our research indicates that the consumption in Israel of TANGERINAS and TANGERS may have contributed to the increase of the number of reported cases of carcinoma in Israel,” said the report.
According to the report, Israel had the highest rate of liver cancer cases in the country, with more than 4,000 cases, followed by France at 2,100, and Canada at 1,900.
The data also showed that the countries with the most cases of TAVERS and TANGLINS were in the U.S., where 1,400 were reported.
According the FAOS, it’s also important to note that the data shows the most recent numbers may have been under-counted due to the number that were not collected.
