Hey! can a 17yr old(18 running) consume green coffee bean extract?

Maybe...but no proof: Green coffee bean extract is considered "possibly safe" in adults and is sometimes used for weight loss, hypertension and other conditions. It has not been studied in children or teens. There is no conclusive proof that it works for these or other conditions.

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger.His balls became red after poop & painful on touch.What should I do?

Possible irritation: Poop can often be very irritating to the skin. If the redness is limited to his scrotum following his poop, that is probably the cause. I would wash him with mild soap and water and use a moisture barrier such as vaseline or desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) on the red areas. If the irritation persists, plan on seeing his pediatrician in the morning. ...Read more

Eat 5 banana, 1orange , 1 apple. 2cup green tea and 2 cup of nescafe(coffee). Is it healthy?

No: Where is your protein? This is mostly an all sugar albeit natural sugar diet. You need a more balanced diet with protien and whole grains. This is not a healthy breakfast or diet. And tea AND coffee? I'd stick with just the green tea myself. ...Read more

Usually not : Most molds are harmless, but some are dangerous. Some contain mycotoxins. The USDA has a nice chart about how to deal with various foods that are moldy.
