the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix
with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can u believe this?? 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.
