Fish is considered very beneficial for health, but milk and fish should never be consumed together. Due to this, you may be troubled by digestive problems like food poisoning, stomach pain etc. Apart from this, skin related problems can also occur. Apart from this, consumption of coconut and milk together is also considered harmful for health.

Spices can stimulate acid production in the stomach, which, when combined with milk, might lead to digestive issues for some individuals. Spicy foods like hot curries, peppers, and heavy spices might increase the risk of acid reflux or indigestion when consumed along with milk.


07/8Salted snacks

Salty snacks like chips and pretzels can make you thirsty, and when you quench that thirst with milk, the high salt content in these snacks can disrupt the electrolyte balance in the body. This combination might lead to bloating and discomfort.

While milk is already a good source of protein, consuming it with other high-protein foods like eggs, meat, or beans might overload your digestive system. The combination of multiple protein sources can be hard to digest and might lead to digestive distress.
