Kidney Beans of Side Effects 
 
Red kidney beans, a common addition to bean chili and other dishes, is a nutritious vegetable, full of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Despite this, there are health risks associated with eating them. Understanding those risks can help you incorporate kidney beans into your diet appropriately without harming your health.

1.Digestive and Bowel Problems
You need 25 g to 38 g of fiber each day for the best health, although your needs decrease as you get older. A 1-cup serving of red kidney beans contains 13.1 g of fiber. If you eat a large amount of red kidney beans or eat a normal serving in a diet already high in fiber, this may cause problems with your digestion and bowel health. These problems include gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea and blocked intestines.

2.High Cholesterol 
certain facts backing up the claim that bean pods extracts actually do lower cholesterol levels in the blood of the people suffering from obesity, are acknowledged

3.Cancer Risk
The folate in red kidney beans -- each 1-cup serving provides 230 mcg of this vitamin -- is generally thought of as beneficial; it may help decrease some birth defects. Getting too much folate may cause health problems, though. You need 400 mcg of folate each day. A study published in a 2009 issue of "The Journal of American Medical Association" indicates that study participants with heart disease who took 0.8 mg of folate each day along with other vitamins demonstrated a higher risk for cancer.

4.Obesity 
One case is especially familiar to experts circles and that is the case of two studies whose results, unfortunately, did not match. That is to say one of those studies discovered that by consuming a particular extract produced from a bean pod has the potential to increase and boost loss of the excessive weight in people who were only moderately overweight – 6 pounds, unlike those who did not include bean pod in their daily diet. On the other hand, i.e. in the second study persons who were already obese did not ward off any excessive weight after eating bean pods during eight weeks of testing.

5.Organ Damage
Including red kidney beans in your diet provides you with iron -- 5.2 mg per cup, which helps meet your daily needs of 8 to 18 mg each day. However, too much iron can be dangerous, so carefully monitor your diet to make sure the kidney beans you consume do not introduce an excess of iron into your diet. Iron overload may trigger heart and brain damage that may result in strokes or heart attacks.

6.Surgery
Bean pod might affect blood sugar levels. There is some concern that it might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop taking bean pod at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
