Yes, and some retracted articles /papers could still have good data, ideas, figures, etc. to cite as long as you put the effort in to vet the thing. I.e. the reason it was retracted doesn't effect the specific thing you want to cite.

That's kind of a separate issue. Chronic acidosis is a big problem in the U.S. (probably due to our diets + stress), so you may say the stomach's self-regulation will always keep the proper pH, that is just not true. Alkaline water doesn't treat the root cause, though. It may help some people with symptoms because it's like taking a weak antacid. You could probably get a better result with tums.
