Cold water not the best for your health
This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about ladies and their heart attacks.
This makes sense.... 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.

Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to plaque. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
Something to think about.
