об опасности, которую таит чрезмерное употребление мандаринов на новый год

An 11-year-old boy turned a yellowish colour after eating too many oranges in Chongqing Municipality recently.

The boy's mother took him to several local hospitals, but none were able to get to the bottom of his change in skin colour.

He was later diagnosed with carotenemia when his mother divulged that he had eaten two to three kilograms of oranges every day last week.

The boy was told his skin colour should return to normal once he cut down his intake of oranges.
