Alright, after studyin economics, the urge to visit this forum hit again. Once again I found a nice thread to participate in . Enough formalities.
On the hot and cold water thing after a game, look at it this way. After exercise, your body needs to replenish water lost through sweat and when you drink water it gets absorbed via osmosis. But this absorbtion rate is faster after exercising when the water is cooler than your body temperature, something around the mid twenties to the late twenties degrees.
But for those of you guys who take a cold drink from a freezer, now that's wrong. Simple analogy which I hoped will not be flamed by a famous flamer in this forum... is this. Consider a frying wok or a claypot. After heating it due to cooking be it stirfry or boiling claypot dishes the wok and claypot are both hot as in around the hundreds of degrees if you immediately splash it with ice cold water it'll crack. This does not mean your internal organs will crack but I say if you cause it to contract too fast after expanding you might risk injuring it.
My 2 cents on the matter.

Is that example an exact opposite of your analogy?

"Water is the most abundant component of the body (60% + by weight).
Blood, kidney, heart and lungs are made of 80% or more water. Muscle, spleen, brain, intestines, & skin are 72-75% water. Even bones are 22% and fat tissue is 10% water."

Totally correct. Related in chinese medi.
But after all people reviews, according to chinese doctor, our bones do expand and contract when we do something, during hot or cold weather or eat or drink something or play. Its also because of mainly a too high temperature drop or rise in our body to cause injuries not to heal or even get worst.

everything does expand and contract to a certain extend while being subjected to heat and cold.
05-25-2005, 12:01 PM #27
I agree to a certain extend with FEND views on that. But our body is not clay pot

hmmm, but if the organs take a shock from the sudden change in temperature, wouldn't u feel something? when i do take cold drinks during or after a game, i feel pretty good in fact pretty refreshing. maybe the drink gotta be really cold? and not chilled?

Add cold into hot, of course shiok. But your bones won't feel that way . Its kind of "no feeling" slow killing human way.

according to wat u are saying, applying ice on skin lvl should be worst then drinking cold water

When your bone got injured(sprained) you need to contract it, in order to do so, we must apply ice to make it contract, but it is not a good idea. It might cause "feng shi". Drink cold water, it goes down into your body and round everywhere and affect your bodies.

but then again, cold water doesn't stay cold forever, i believe the water warms up pretty fast once it enters ur body

After awhile the pain will come back. Meaning after spraying those chemical thingy or after finishing applying ice on it after sometime, the pain will come again.
