High Cholesterol and High Purines.
According to the USDA, 100 grams of shrimp contains 187 milligrams of cholesterol. Excessive cholesterol can lead to the accumulation of plaque in the arteries, causing various cardiovascular and cerebrovascular problems.
The purine content of 100g of shrimp is about 270 mg. Excessive consumption of high-purine foods can significantly increase the uric acid index in the body’s blood, which raises the risk of gout.
Therefore, it is recommended to consume no more than 100 grams of shrimp per day.
