Curd is an excellent source of beneficial or “good” bacteria. It helps in digestion and is an excellent source of calcium for strong bones and teeth. The myth that eating curd in the evening causes cold is often heard from people. The truth is that cold is caused on exposure to a virus when one’s immunity is low. So, curd cannot be assumed to be causing the cold as it is the virus causing it.
A fish lover has often heard about not having milk with fish. It is believed that it could lead to rashes or skin irritation, or even worse, it can lead to formation of white patches or skin pigmentation. However, there is no scientific basis to this claim. In fact, there are many Indian fish recipes which include curd, a milk product in the recipe itself. No untoward effects have been seen. In fact, vitiligo or white spots is an autoimmune disease resulting in white spots and is not a result of eating fish and milk or milk products together.
