Is it true that if you drink beer and eat watermelon it can have bad side effects? Is that true for all fruit and alcohol?
Not medical advice: No, the myth about mixing watermelon and any kind of alcohol, including beer, is just that, a myth. In reality people make a very enjoyable summertime drink by cutting a hole in a watermelon and pouring vodka into it. As long as it is consumed in moderation, no more than one or two drinks worth (1 or 2 12oz cans of beer, or 1 or 2 ounces of alcohol) there is no risk of serious harm in a healthy person of legal drinking age.
