Hi on occasion for the past year I have had orange feels sandy, residue in toilet after urination, gritty Like crystals, Drinking water it goes away. Happens usually when I'm nice t drinking a lot. I'm 32 scared it's cancer. Don't see blood?
Urate crystals: That's my bet. It's fairly common. I'm going to assume you're taking no other medications. Keep drinking plenty of water, ask whether a urinalysis to confirm this is in order, ask your physician whether it's worth checking your blood uric acid levels, or whether it's worth taking medication to alkalinize your urine (I wouldn't) which would dissolve the stuff. ...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

Does rinsing your mouth with water immediately after drinking soda pop clean all its sugar residue off the teeth?
Yes, except: If your teeth have unremoved bacterial plaque (for example, not flossing to remove bacteria between teeth) the sugars in the soda can "feed" the bacteria, causing the sugars to be converted into acids. So you can't skip cleaning steps and expect simply rinsing with water to be a cure-all. ...Read more

Not likely.: If you mean a few drops of water from the toilet flushing then the answer is not likely. Any open wounds or sores are always predisposed to infection.

If you have just not moved your bowels and have no related pain /discomfort, then try high fiber foods or can try Miralax (polyethylene glycol). Take care! ...Read more

They do require extra plumbing & are initially quite expensive, especially the ones with all the bells & whistles, but people who have used these toilets tell me they will never go back to anything else. ...Read more
