Drinking cold water after meals causes cancer is a myth!

The article claiming that “drinking cold water after a meal causes cancer” has no evidence as back up and such a connection has not been documented in any reliable cancer health resources.

An e-mail has been circulating around with the article containing the false information, containing no external references to back up its claims. The article says that, 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.
