Non-veg lovers start drooling once they hear 'chicken is ready to have.' Aren't they? If you are one of them and have a special place for chicken dishes in your heart, you must know that though this poultry item is considered healthy, there are various side effects associated with its daily consumption. It is fine to have a chicken appetizer or a main scrumptious chicken dish twice or thrice a month as the food item is jam-packed with protein and offers an array of other essential nutrients to our bodies. However, you should do away with its daily consumption. Here is why.

Increases Blood Cholesterol Level

If deep-fried chicken is what always appeals to you and you always succumb to that craving, get ready to blame it for a spike in your blood cholesterol level. Notably, both white and red meat's daily consumption can increase the level of bad cholesterol, says a research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. To keep your cholesterol level in check, opt for boiled, grilled, or stir-fried chicken, but not daily.

Leads To Spike In Body Temperature

Being a high heat food, chicken's daily consumption can lead to an increase in your body's overall temperature. This can further cause nose bleeding especially during summers. 

Causes Weight Gain

Most of the chicken dishes including fried chicken, chicken biryani, or butter chicken are rich in calories and are heavy. Having them daily can take a toll on your overall weight and may eventually lead to obesity. Therefore, eat them once in a while.

May Cause UTIs

As per a report by Science Daily, scientists found E.coli in approximately 80 per cent of meat samples during research. They also found 72 per cent positive urine and blood samples from meat-eating patients. Notably, E.coli can cause urinary tract infection (UTIs) along with a range of other infections, says a study published in the American Society for Microbiology's journal mBio.
