Hmmm, not exactly a citation, but I did the Google thing.
Some search parameters I used (in several combinations):
cold water heart health arteriosclerosis atherosclerosis
muchmorethanmuscle saidThe article went to go into detail about how people with arteriosclerosis or cholesterol buildup in their veins and arteries can aggravate these blockages by drinking cold beverages.
...raised some questions for me. Was "arteriosclerosis or cholesterol buildup" an either/or list, or was cholesterol buildup a clarifier for arteriosclerosis?
Since several pages of search results brought no such article in to view (hardly "all over the internet"), you present me with a challenge: do I take your word that your memory is sufficient to cite an article you read, and that your naturally skeptical nature would have sourced the medical study that the article cites?
Because, in all honesty, your claim makes sense
, but such a fallacious trap (that an idea seems
reasonable) can as likely produce a dangerous (at the worst) or pointless (at the best) medical result.
The one article that I did find regards a congenital condition that presents itself when immersing in ice water (but no mention is made of drinking it): http://www.everydayhealth.com/heart-health-specialist/chest-pains-ice.aspx
. And no mention is made that this is a problem for people with other heart health issues, much less healthy guys like me.
Now, I enjoy your posts, in that they provide me with great entertainment with your unqualified medical claims, but--my condescending overlord--you are no doctor, and must do a better job here on this website when dispensing unsubstantiated medical advice.
