Stomach and Abdominal Pain

What causes a stomach ache after eating watermelon?

Sorbitol/Fructose Intolerance could be the cause of your pain after eating watermelon. It could be that you have trouble tolerating sorbitol or fructose. Try eliminating watermelon from your diet or try eating much smaller amounts. You can ask your doctor to be tested for sorbitol malabsorption, which is a simple test that is similar to the test done to diagnose lactose intolerance. If you are intolerant to sorbitol, watermelon may not be the only food causing you an upset stomach. You may also react to peaches, apples, pears, nectarines, cherries, and avocados.

Does watermelon cause red bowel movement?

Yes. If you eat enough watermelon your feces can turn red, just like with eating beets. Also, if you eat it fast, your body may not digest all of the pulp and you might see some in your stool. As early as 1911 there were doctor studies published showing that even doctors thought it looked like blood until checked under a microscope. If you are worried that what you are seeing is blood stop eating the watermelon for a few days. If you still see red, then you should contact your doctor. And do not listen to people who say that watermelon is pure water, that is not true at all. It can affect the color of your stool.

Care of Rabbits

Is watermelon rind healthy for rabbits?

No, watermelon (rind and fruit) isn't healthy for rabbits. It's too high in sugar (even the rind), and not high enough in healthy nutrients.

Sometimes watermelon is good, sometimes it is okay. Watermelon is a treat. Treats (like fresh fruits, carrot) should be limited to a bite every couple of days (assuming your rabbit can handle them and doesn't get diarrhea; and otherwise is eating a healthy diet). Watermelon is an especially sugary treat so it should be especially limited.

Rabbits eat a diet mostly of hay. They also eat some high quality pellets, and should have access to fresh water. Fresh greens can become a part of your rabbit's diet slowly (too much too quickly can result in digestive problems). See the related question about the rabbit diet below.

What nutrients are found in watermelon?

Watermelons are low in calories and very nutritious. Watermelon is also high in lycopene, second only to tomatoes. Recent research suggests that lyeopene, a powerful antioxidant, helps prevent some forms of cancer and cardiovascular disease. According to research conducted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, men who consumed a lycopene-rich diet were half as likely to suffer a heart attack as those who had little or no lycopene in their diets. Watermelon is also high in vitamin C and vitamin A, in the form of disease-fighting beta carotene. Lycopene and beta carotene work in conjunction with other plant chemicals not found in vitamin or mineral supplements. Watermelon also contains potassium, which is believed to help control blood pressure and possibly prevent strokes. A wedge of watermelon, or about 1 2/3 cups: 92 cal. 1.77 g pro., 20.54 g carb., 1.43 g dietary fiber, 332 mg potassium, 27.46 mg. vitamin C, 1046.76 IU vitamin A.

What foods make your penis hard?

Watermelon is known to help with erectile dysfunction somewhat.

"The more we study watermelons, the more we realize just how amazing a fruit it is in providing natural enhancers to the human body," said Dr. Bhimu Patil, director of Texas A&M's Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center in College Station.

"We've always known that watermelon is good for you, but the list of its very important healthful benefits grows longer with each study."

Beneficial ingredients in watermelon and other fruits and vegetables are known as phyto-nutrients, naturally occurring compounds that are bioactive, or able to react with the human body to trigger healthy reactions, Patil said.

In watermelons, these include lycopene, beta carotene and the rising star among its phyto-nutrients - citrulline - whose beneficial functions are now being unraveled. Among them is the ability to relax blood vessels, much like Viagra does."
