Dear Dr James,
I am a regular listener to your shows and I have a question.
Recently, in one of the health talk shows you spoke about drinking cold vs room temperature water.
It was interesting to hear the suggestion to drink room temperature water and at the same time read in other sources suggestion to drink cold water.
Here is what I read:
In one of last week’s digests I talked about a study which demonstrated that keeping your core temperature low is key to athletic performance in hot/humid conditions. I also talked about how the best way to keep your core temperature down is to cool your body “from the inside out”by drinking ice-cold water prior to and during training / racing. This study shows that there is an even better way: adding menthol to your ice-cold water seems to provide significant performance improvements for brick sessions in hot/humid conditions. Yes, part of the effect seems to be psychological, but even some physiological markers showed improvement. I’m going to give this a try!
Just letting you know for your consideration.. I guess people make their own joudgement and do what they believe in…

BPA may cause us to get fat?
BPA still in canned foods!

Beware of facial fillers!

Signs of a severe allergic reaction.

Botox and an overactive bladder!

Pain killers and liver issues!
