Refreshing Salad of Corn and Cucumber

In the season when the temperature rises, the human body also builds up excess heat. Corn and cucumber, which are in season now, have the effect of removing the extra heat. They also have a diuretic effect, which rid your body of excess water. Therefore, they might help to reduce swelling. Tomatoes have the same effect, so eating them together is even better!
