Think Twice Before Scarfing Down That Glass of Ice Water

On a hot summer’s day chugging down a frosty glass of ice water may seem like the move. Studies showed that people who routinely experience migraines were the most likely to be harmed by drinking ice water. In a 2019 review of inquiries published in Current Neurology and Neuroscience Reports, researchers learned that ice water triggered more painful effects than ice cubes. (For the study, scientists recruited 669 women and gave them a five-ounce glass of ice water to sip through a straw.) Don’t sip ice water through a straw, especially if it’s touching your palate, and don’t drink freezing cold water.
