Warm water after a meal ...

The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals...not cold water...  maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain...
For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.  It is nice to have a 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 can lead to cancer. It is best to  drink hot soup or warm tea/water after a meal.
