Is there any danger in eating orange peels, not jest but the peel itself?

Is there any danger in eating orange peels, not jest but the peel itself?

Not really: In fact, the peel (zest) contains flavorful oils and is used in many desserts. Make sure to wash well to remove surface pesticides and dirt. I am not aware of any nutritional benefit of the better white pith, beside maybe some fiber.

What is the difference between orange peel skin and cellulite?

What is the difference between orange peel skin and cellulite?

Cellulite & Orange: Cellulite generally looks like dimpling of the skin. This is caused by normal bands between the skin and deeper tissues that either shorten, or most commonly, the fat between the skin and deep tissues thicken, causing the dimple. Orange peel skin gets it's appearance from edema or swelling in the skin. The normal skin pores appear larger and deeper. Seen in lymphedema patients sometimes.

Please help! What is the difference between orange peel skin and cellulite?

Celllulite is looser: Orange peal skin (peau d'orange) has a tighter skin pattern than cellulite. Just take a good look at an actual orange and you will see the tight punctate contours. It can suggest an underlying tumor. Cellulite creates dimpled irregularities of skin, but the pattern is a looser. It is created by the confined nature of certain fascial attachments to the undersurface of the skin, but with no tumor.

Is orange allergy to the inside or to the peel?

Is orange allergy to the inside or to the peel?

Either or birch tree: Reactions to orange can be either to the peel or the pulp (the fleshy part of the orange). Many people who have only itching in their mouth & throat after eating oranges and other raw fruits and vegetables actually have oral allergy syndrome. Oas is caused by allergy to birch tree pollen and the immune system mistaking fruit proteins for pollen allergens. Which one is your problem?

Is it bad to eat orange peel? Does it contain more pesticides than fruit such as apples?

Is it bad to eat orange peel? Does it contain more pesticides than fruit such as apples?

OK but organic best!: Orange peels are a superb source of beneficial phytonutrients such as bioflavonoids, but will likely have pesticide residues unless organic. In a list of 50 common fruits and veggies apples ranked first in pesticides and oranges 31st- see http://www. Ewg. Org/foodnews/list. Php Try washing before eating by soaking in solution of 10% vinegar/90% water for 20 min, then rinse. Choose organic if available!

Concerned. Does fruit peel contain more pesticides than normal fruit? Would an apple contain more pesticides than orange peel?

Concerned. Does fruit peel contain more pesticides than normal fruit? Would an apple contain more pesticides than orange peel?

Pesticides: All fruits should be well washed because of the use of pesticides often used by the growers. Of course the peel contains the brunt of the pesticide. I don't feel that there is any significant difference between apples and oranges in that regard except you don't eat the peel of the Orange usually.

Is it bad to eat something that has been in contact with orange peel as it tasted like orange peel. I did not wash the peel.

Is it bad to eat something that has been in contact with orange peel as it tasted like orange peel. I did not wash the peel.

Nothing to worry: Food in contact with orange peel may get some of its taste rubbed off on the food but it shd not be harmful at all unless u kept it out & peel were rotting. Even then under clean household conditions it shd not cause any harm. If u r allergic to anything orange it may cause a reactIion. If any symptoms of nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain develop have urself chk'd &do not worry in the meantime.

How do I prevent rashes on my fingers when I peel onions?

How do I prevent rashes on my fingers when I peel onions?

Avoid the contact: Contact dermatitis is caused by the direct contact with the onion. You can wear latex or nitrile gloves when you peel the onions, so that your skin does not actually touch the onion. After you are finished, wash your hands with lots of water.

Can eating an orange peel covered in tooth paste make you get high?

Can eating an orange peel covered in tooth paste make you get high?

Don't think so: Sounds gross to me and I can't think of any reason why this combination would possibly make you high. Besides swallowing to much toothpaste will make you throw up.

I've read that spraying orange mist from the peel int the eyes is good. Is there any medical truth to this?

I've read that spraying orange mist from the peel int the eyes is good. Is there any medical truth to this?

Not true: This is a mildly acidic and irritating solution. It will almost certainly not harm the eyes but I cannot see any benefit from this at all.

Fact or Myth? Most nutritious part of fruit is often the peel, like in oranges and bananas. (are organic peels harmful or toxic or nutritious?)

Infected rashes and peeling skin at the sam time?

If you're asking...: ...Whether you both can occur at the same time, yes. Most rashes peel as they go away, the same way a sunburn does. You shouldn't assume your rash is infected, though, unless a culture has been taken and is positive -- in which case you may need an antibiotic.
