The cousin in Oregon continues on with his spiel!
There is nothing like a long cold drink of water after a meal. 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. Oh yum, I love warm water. And I thought soup WAS the meal.
So, does this mean that when you go out to dinner and the waiter person brings you a glass of water they are giving you a chance to have cancer with your meal? Does this apply to soda? Or anything cold, including alcohol?
I am wondering how this cold glass of water stays cold in our system long enough to make that butter harden.
Is this why my Sweet Thomas is drinking room temperature water? I thought it was the Raynaud's. Raynaud's Syndrome as we all know, is a condition where the hands are cold. Holding cold glasses means purple fingers. At one time, we actually had them warm his milk in the microwave to take the chill off the glass. We still do it at home but since most places use plastic, the cold doesn't transfer as much.
If you know the answer, let me know, okay?
Hugs on this, the 13th day of March.
