The Surprising Dangers of Eating Cold Food

2. Organ Damage

Over time, constant exposure to cold food can lead to deterioration of organs like the spleen, liver, or pancreas. That’s because blood flow is restricted when the body is working to warm up cold food enough to digest it. These organs may also not get as much energy as they need to efficiently play their parts in the digestive process.

Now, this is not something to worry about when you enjoy an occasional fruit smoothie. But you may want to start drinking your water at room temperature and storing fruits and vegetables that you eat raw in the pantry instead of the refrigerator. It’s just one easy way to keep your entire body functioning optimally as you age.
