A cardiologist says if everyone who reads the below article and can sent it to 10 people, you can be sure that at least one life can be saved. Read this...It could save your life!
For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.
It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
While this sounds logical, I wouldn't believe everything you read. If you drink cold water after you eat the water will be warmed by your body heat by the time it gets to your stomach. Even if it isn't as warm as the "oils", the oils are already warmed and the water won't effect the food to that extent. Besides, by the time the "oils" get to your intestines they have been broken down by the stomach acids.
But I could be wrong.
I think you get more cancer by eating junk food
In fact, the stomach acids break down the proteins. Fats are broken down in the small intestine by bile acids and lipase produced by pancreas.
The theory at the very top is rubbish, too.
Phew. I rarely drink anything other than steaming hot coffee post meals
*knows caffeine ain't great neither*
Well I do not think that cold water will cause cancer. What I do believe is that drinking tea at temperatures of 70C or higher increased the risk of esophageal cancer( according to the British Medical Journal). It makes sense to me since, one of the things you learn in pathology courses is that cells can adapt to insults without pathological changes. But when that insult goes over the physiologically limits a cell can withstand, a pathological change will occur. --->for example cancer!
This is complete unscientific nonsense.
1. The only fats that would solidify in the presence of cold water are saturated fats and/or hydrogenated ones (which are bad for you no matter what their phase).
2. By the time anything cold reaches your stomach it is body-temperature again, having warmed up going down your esophagus.
3. The phase of oil has absolutely nothing to do with its reaction to acids. Acids have very little activity on oils to begin with.
4. There is no "sludge" that will be created and magically line your bowels.
People who fail junior high school science should not pretend to be cardiologists and make up health-scare spam.
That's not true. If you eat ice cream or drink "ice cold" drinks they are not body temperature by the time they reach the stomach. They take a short while to reach body temperature. That's why you can get chills on a hot day from consuming them very quickly. It drops your core temperature just a bit which startles the body.
Could you provide the source? It looks like some kind of chain email post to me.. (send on to 10 friends)
Always check out claims like this. Some reasons why it is false here:
and yes the "pass it on to ten friends " is often a signal to check the sources.
Well if you believe drinking cold water will cause cancer then send me 10,000 dollars and I promise it will cure cancer I'll even give you a guarantee.
This is just one of those silly chain e-mails, where it says "pass this on to ten people or you'll go to hell!"
I just delete them if they crop up in my in-box. My brother sends them to me because he thinks they're funny. They're really just annoying and a waste of time.
This article makes perfect sense to me. I have always had a soda with my meals and now drink mostly water because I have gained 40 pounds when I quit smoking. Perhaps I had better change my ways and go to hot drinks with my meals since I recently had carotid artery surgery due to plaque build up.
If we all did everything "just right", we would all live forever!
Bit like cars. If you install every fuel saving device, and use every fuel additive,and drive a certain way, your gas tank would never go dry.
well you could "eat fiber" and neutralize that effect?
either way I have sensitive teeth
and I hate the taste of cold water
I don't believe it
so much "science" just to make money with magic pills and elixirs
Can't really argue with any given "this will kill you" theory. After all, what won't?
Don't believe all that you see and only half of what you hear. That is simply a theory there isn't any long-term scientific evidence that it is actually one of the main causes of Cancer.
nope don't believe a word that one says. lol another theory on cancer...hello studied cancer back in college and no way cancer can be created by drinking cold water after eating a meal sorry
You are supposed to rince your mouth out with warm,tepid
water after brushibg your teeth.That is why you are getting pain or else you have become long in the tooth.
Drinking iced water every day promotes long life.
The oldest women in china is 113 years old and swears by it.
Whenever I receive an email that starts with "pass this onto 10 friends" I hit the "delete" button automatically.
Yeah, let's give us some reliable source.. i always do it, drink cold water cause i like it
*knows caffeine ain't great neither*"
