1. For people with poor intestinal immunity, eating seafood is potentially fatal. When eating "drunk crab," "raw sea urchin," "soy sauce marinated seafood," and other seafood not heated, cooking must be careful when eating salmon to ensure that the fish fresh and hygienic.

2. Eat a certain amount of seafood at each meal, slowly increase the amount, an allergic reaction, immediately curb eating. So after several times trying to find their appropriate amount, they will not be allergic every time eating.

3. You'd better not drink beer with seafood. Shrimp, crab, and other aquatic products are metabolized by the body to form uric acid, and excessive uric acid can lead to gout and renal tuberculosis. If a great deal of edible seafood while, drinkable beer again, can accelerate the formation of uric acid inside the body, produce an allergic effect to the body.

4. The principle of drinking tea after eating seafood is similar to that of eating fruit. Because tea also contains tannic acid, it can also form insoluble calcium with the calcium in seafood; before or after eating seafood, drinking tea will increase the timing of calcium and tannic acid-binding. Therefore, it is best not to drink tea when eating seafood. For the same reason, the best interval is more than 2 hours.

5. Any seafood can only be cooked in a state of high freshness, such as steamed or blanched dishes. So, seafood must be fresh.

6. To eat seafood, it is best to freeze it first and then pour some light saltwater. When eating, dip more vinegar, chew slowly, and swallow slowly so that the enzymes in the saliva can slow down the reception of allergens in the gastrointestinal tract.
