Side Effects of eating too many Mandarin oranges?

Anyone know if eating too many mandarin oranges are bad for you? I just finished my 17th one since I came home from work and going strong. They're just so sweet and juicy. And they peel so easily!

If that is your 17th one today, you might be on the toilet for a long time later tonight.

My 13 yr old does it all the time v_tofu. He eats a 4 lb box a day of either clementines or mandarins. You'll be fine if you eat fresh fruit normally, if not you may be hitting the bathroom quite a bit....

(sitting here peeling 3 clementines! :lol: )

I'm not really worried about havnig to go to the can every 1/2 hr (pretty regular) but I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that an overdose of Vitamin C is not healthy for a person. Oh well, I got anoher 2 boxes to go :cheesygri

if you worry about overdosing vitamin c, then don't worry about it.

I read somewhere that large doses of Vit C can act as a natural contraceptive, but I think it'll take a lot more than 17 mandarins.
So be careful, you may get pregnant! :D

Too much citric acid isnt too good.
It might cause you some burning problems when your peeing.

Just a warning.
I have actually asked my aunt whos a nurse cause i love oranges.
A couple years ago i ate 11 oranges in a span of like 2 hours.
I had trouble peeing.

It's been documented that if you eat too many Mandarin oranges, you'll come down with Mandarin Vocalitis. You'll actually start speaking Mandarin.

Yup. But that's actually frmo ascorbic acid poisoning, ala Vitamin C overdosing. It feels like you are peeing needles!
