Taking cold drinks with food is dangerous to our bodies. The doctors and nutrients say it is dangerous because it can have adverse effects on your digestive system.
If you have to drink water, let it be at room temperature. This is because drinking cold water after meals creates excess mucus in the body which can lower the functioning of the immune system, making it easier to catch cold and illness.
The doctors in Mulago hospital told our health news writers this week that it is good to instead take worm tea at mealtime in place of cold water.
