OK: Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) happens when there is impaired reabsorption of bicarbonate and/or impaired acidification by the kidneys. One way to treat RTA is to give alkaline substances (sodium bicarbonate). Cucumbers are considered high alkaline forming foods and should be ok to consume if you have rta.

You decide: Like all living things, cucumber seeds contain a huge number of substances some of which do things to cells in tissue cultures and so forth. And like everything else it has some vitamins and minerals in it. I would caution you against using this or any other supplement for a specific purpose, especially if you are actually sick.

My husband took a bite of cucumber and then gave the same piece to our 1 year old son. I worry how ok is that?

My husband took a bite of cucumber and then gave the same piece to our 1 year old son. I worry how ok is that?

That's fine: You don't hesitate to mouth-kiss your husband, I hope. Families share common bacteria and Junior has nothing to worry about. I trust he does not have an active fever blister. I'd actually be surprised if even oral gonorrhea could be transmitted in this way, and I trust this is not an issue here. There's no reason for "condom consciousness" in the ordinary, wonderful intimacies of being a family.

Is lemon and cucumber water cause anxiety?

Is lemon and cucumber water cause anxiety?

No, it is fine: Depending on the health of your gastrointestinal organs, it might give you a bit of heartburn or acid reflux - but if you've a healthy strong stomach, it sounds fine - even refreshing! Anxiety would not be caused by either ingredient. But, if you don't like the after effects - don't drink it. Find other Vitamin C sources. Don't worry - you did not do any harm to yourself.

Of course it is: Possible to get obese if you eat enough of anything. In this case the oil and vinaigrette would be the calories... Though it is not likely to happen. You could definitely have high cholesterol without being overweight though.
