Q: Is there science behind drinking warm water?

So many have talked about it but is there actually science behind this drink-warm-water myth?

 

According to this article the benefits of drinking warm (notice, not hot) water include halting pre-mature aging and facilitating weight loss. 

 

As to whether the medical or scientific reasoning given is sufficient  I would like to hear your comments, especially if you have a bio-chemistry or medical background. Thanks.

Since the upside far outweighs the downside, ie what harm can drinking a cup of warm water every morning bring, I will test this "warm water myth" out for a week and see how it goes.

Intake right amount of water is good for your health.

 

So is warm water.

 

Hot water may get you burned. Cold water can be stimulating to the belly.

 

Warm water is close to body temperature. So it's the best.

THis is no science but since i was the first time in china when i was 20years i learned this and i kept this lifestyle because it is so good for my body. Even in summer i dont drink cold water. I dont like to drink hot water.  But warm water i think is close to ones own body temperature, so less shocky for the body i guess Smile

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
