Drinks Cold Flu Triggers Not Proven

Cold drinks are often blamed as the trigger of a cold or the flu in children.
According to dr. Herbowo Soetomenggolo, SpA, a pediatrician at Women and Children’s Hospital Hermina (2/7), until now there has been no evidence that cold drinks can cause colds.
Research actually shows if the sweets and oils can actually cause pain.
“Sweet food is a food virus, whereas a mediator for germ oil,” said dr. Bowo.
According to the book “Diets for Healthy Living: Dr. Linda Page’s Natural Solutions to America’s 10 Biggest Health Problems”, sugar prevents the body fight bacteria that can cause flu-like symptoms.
Eating foods that contain a lot of sugar, such as cake, candy and cakes can prevent the body deal with nasal congestion which is a common complaint when cold.
Sugar makes the mucus in the respiratory tract last a long time and because of the warm and moist mucus, making it a convenient medium for the virus.
