The Way you Drink Water can Cause Deadly Disease-Mostly Unproven!

Summary of the eRumor:
Several claims:  1.  A regimen of drinking water in the morning on an empty stomach can cure several diseases including cancer, arthritis, and diabetes.  2.  Drinking cold water with meals can cause sludge in the intestines and lead to cancer.  3.  Women should be aware of heart attack symptoms.
 
The Truth:  
Let's take the topics one at a time:

1.  Drink water in the morning on an empty stomach and cure diseases-
Unproven!
So called "Water Therapy" is a popular recommendation among practioners of alternative medicine but we have not found any credible evidence of the value of the method suggested in this email or that it would cure serious diseases such as cancer.  Such claims are not backed up with valid research.

2.  Drinking cold water with meals can cause sludge in the intestines and lead to cancer-
Unproven!
We have not found "Japanese Medical Society" referred to in the email. Although there are doctors and nutritionists who sometimes recommend not drinking water with meals, we have not found any documentation that drinking ice water clogs up the intestines.  One nutritionist we asked said it doesn't make much of a difference because all food and drink, whether hot or cold, eventually gets to the same internal temperatures and long before getting to the intestine.

3.  Women should be aware of heart attack symptoms-
Truth!
Physicians have long recommended that women be as sensitive to heart attack symptoms as men.  We found no documentation that 60% of people who have a heart attack while asleep do not wake up but the symptoms of heart attack that are described are generally true.

 
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

Subject: DRINK WATER ON EMPTY STOMACH

 FOR HEALTH REASONS....PLEASE READ!!!

 DRINK WATER ON EMPTY STOMACH

 It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every     
 Morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value. We list below a
 Description of use of water for our readers. For old and serious diseases as well 
 As modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese   
 Medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:

 Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess   
 Fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting,  
 Gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer
 And menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.

 

 METHOD OF TREATMENT

 1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of  water,

2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minutes,
3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal,

 4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything  for 2 hours,

 5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning 
 May commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.

 6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can    
 Enjoy a healthy life.

 

 The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to

 Cure/control/reduce main diseases:

 1. High Blood Pressure - 30 days

 2. Gastric - 10 days

 3. Diabetes - 30 days

 4. Constipation - 10 days

 5. Cancer - 180 days

 6. TB - 90 days

 7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st
 Week, and from 2nd week onwards - daily.

 This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of         
 Treatment you may have to urinate a few times. It is better if we continue this   
 And make this procedure as a routine work in our life.

 

 Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

 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 cup of 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 lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot
Soup or warm water after a meal.

 A serious note about heart attacks: Women should know that not every heart attack 
 Symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw  
 Line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.
 Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a    
 Heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you   
 From a sound sleep.

 Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better we survive.

If everyone who gets this mail sends it to everyone they know,  you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.
