Have you seen the animals are going to die by eating tapioca leaves. Do you feel tiredness,giddiness after eating tapioca?
What is the reason for that ? This is due to more carbohydrates in tapioca. If the body is getting more carbohydrates will cause for sugar and thyroid problems. The hydrogen cyanide is the next problematic thing in it. It is very danger if it directly received. It will loose while boiling the tapioca. But small amount will be reached in body. So we can eat protein rich diets. The nitrates in the protein will destroy the cyanide in tapioca. So while having tapioca should eat meat or fish. The vegetarians can eat green gram,peas and pulses can be used.
