That means most chemotherapy is completely metabolized to inactive products with in hrs to days after administration.

Veges: Any food stuffs that contain large amounts of fiber. Fiber is plant sourced undigestable cellulosic solids, that adsorb water from the gut, thereby giving more "bulk" to stool.

Hello I washed a bed sheet in bleach and it didn't fully dry in the center. I woke up I found myself covered in wet residue from bleach is this bad?
No: Standard laundry bleach is sodium hypochlorite in water. And when you washed it in the washing machine it was diluted down even more with more water. That will not harm your skin but if you do not dry yourself off thoroughly you might bleach the colors of any clothes that you put on this AM and the towels that you use. Take a quick shower before you get dressed. ...Read more

No residue on the tissue after you've wiped & "pooped." Is this normal if this has lasted about 1 month? Should I be concerned?
Dont be: Having the perfect bowel movement was described by amy surgeon friend as only having to wipe once. Now if you don't have to wipe at all are you sure you are having a movement. If you did and miraculously didn't have to wipe or did wipe with no residue that is interesting. Im not too concerned but would like to see this in real life. ...Read more

Recently read online that we need to wash dry spaghetti like veggies before cooking it as there will be some chemical residue in packing,is it true??
No: I was able to find the source of this urban legend. The outer surface of each strand of pasta has a little bit of starch on it that's not combined into the strand. This rubs off -- try it. People have seen this and thought it was a "dangerous chemical". Relax and enjoy your pasta. ...Read more

You may have white rice and white bread. Only exceptions to fruit/veggies is mashed potatoes and non chunky apple sauce.

I shower daily and the next morning I have a white residue under the foreskin is that from dry skin?
It is smegma: It is normal to shed a cell layer of skin on a daily basis, this is doubled under the foreskin because two skin surfaces are in contact. Think of it as dandruff of the penis, similar to dried skin between the toes, which stays there because the penile glans is not exposed and thus does not rub off. Don't fret it's normal. ...Read more

Is the black residue on new stainless steel pots dangerous for baby? i washed and boiled water in it and when i wipe with towel, residue still there
No: While stainless steel is named stainless it's more stain resistant. Chemicals in water and/or food can stain the insides of stainless steel pots. And prolonged high heat can stain the outside of the pots. I wouldn't worry and you can try to remove the stains with some vinegar or lemon juice. Best of luck. ...Read more
