Drinking Cold Water After a Meal

My Mom and my husband has been telling me and the kids not to drink too much cold water but I always answer that I feel incomplete whenever I eat and then drink room temperature water. I'm talking about lunch and dinner as cold water is really a no-no in the morning. I remember my Mom's cough stopped when she starts drinking slightly warm water. Now I just browse upon an email from a friend sharing me information that drinking cold water after a meal can cause cancer! Really! Can you believe this?

Here’s what I learned from the emailed information. I know how it’s nice to drink a glass or two of cold water after a meal but you have to read the process in order to believe this one. The cold water will solidify the oily foods that we consumed and it will slow down the digestion. Then once this reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will definitely line the intestine and soon this will turn into fats and lead to the deadly disease cancer.

So it’s best to drink warm water or maybe hot soup after the meal to help digestion of the food. So now it will also help my constipation problem and my weight loss goal.
