This is what Dr Oz says: Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can you believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this applies to you. It's nice to have a cold drink after a meal, however, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you've just consumed, which slows 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.
Do you all think there is any merit in this? I love cold water.....but with the fat I am eating....do I have to worry?
Anything you consume ends up the same temperature.
yep drinkin' cold water will kill you, thats why I drink red wine at breakfast, lunch and dinner ;)
As much as I'm not a fan of Dr. Oz, I think this has been incorrectly attributed to him.
This one has been doing the rounds on email for years:
Dr. Oz also promotes distance healing, speaking to the dead through mediums, and homeopathy.
Now, he may accidentally say something that is correct, but were not talking about someone you should ever pay attention to for advice.
You know what scares me about DR OZ. Everything. HE is credible so people with believe everything hesays and think they have "IT"....my mom and friends quote him so much that i wonder how long before they are afraid to get out of bed....kind of like if you watch the news daily....it may be true but i cant let watch it all the time or i would be builing a bomb shelter/doomsday shelter right now instead of learning how to make my life better.. :)
This seems pretty unreal to me. I would think your body would warm the water faster than the water would solidify the fat - I mean think how long it takes the warm fats to solidify in a pan or on your plate. I wouldn't worry
