2. Tomatoes

The ancient science of Ayurveda says that tomatoes are a heating food, which can cause anger. If you're prone to reacting in anger, you're likely at least partially a pitta dosha, the element made of fire. A little fire is good, it leads to better digestion. But too much fire leads to anger and the side effects of anger like stress and the resulting guilt.
