The Surprising Dangers of Eating Cold Food

3. Improper Immune Response

 

The immune system is also impacted by frequent exposure to cold food. This is dangerous because when our immune response is weak, we are less able to fight off the germs that float our way. Another concern is that the immune system may be overtaxed by the effort to deal with digestive issues like bloating, gas, bacterial infections, or overgrowth of bad bacteria in the gut.

Even though a strong immune system is critical to overall health, there are aspects of its function that actually cause more problems than they solve. Chronic inflammation, meant to seal off damaged parts of the body from healthy parts, contributes to the development of disease over the long term.

Reducing the amount of cold food that you eat is just one way to keep your immune system on track and less likely to over or under react to stimuli.
