Its a good reminder even though its old news... A very good article which takes 2 minutes to read. Sent by a friend of a friend who had about 25 or 30 years in the field with such emergencies. Its about Heart Attacks And Drinking Hot or Warm Water.
For those who like to drink cold water [I AM one of those people :P...], 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 can lead to hypertension and heart attack. It is best to drink hot or warm drink after a meal. Now I am going to start drinking hot tea again like I used to every single day when I was younger. (Ouch!.. I meant when I was in high skool okie.. I am not that old yet..arrghh). And by the way, tea is a good antioxidant! I will post more on this since I am a tea-addict! :)
Common Symptoms Of Heart Attack
A serious note about heart attacks - You 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 chance we have to survive.
