I love, love, love durian; I can live on them! But here there's a lot of myths/ beliefs about them.Old people say that if you eat too much or too often your body will get "heaty". If you give them to small kids,they'll get sick or even die.I really like to eat a lot of them when it's in season, but this thoughts really spoil the fun of it.I try to talk my husband out of it by saying that if God created this wonderful, tasty fruit then that means it's good for us. But then again, why the thorny skin; is it God telling us to stay away from it? MH, is durian a human food?
