Does drinking cold water trigger bacterial/viral action

Asked by somyap 23rd April 2010, 3:35 PM
Answered by Expert

Doctors over the world agree that sore throat and colds are due to germs, viruses and bacteria, not because of eating cold foods. So though many people believe that drinking cold water causes throat infection, there is no scientific evidence to prove this. However, it is better to avoid cold water when you are suffering from cold.
