Drinking cold Water With Meals

Medical news today-“Consuming enough water every day is essential for supporting all bodily functions, including digestion and metabolism, getting rid of waste, maintaining a normal body temperature, and keeping organs and tissues healthy”

Warnings in the video
1. Avoid cold water after a meal
2. Never go to bed after a meal
3. Drinking tea with a meal
4. Eating fruits after a meal
5. Smoking after a meal
6. Never rush to shower after a meal
