Editor’s Note: I’ll just note that a) this was under the section of artificial drinks (is it the ice?), and b) I’ve yet to come across a liquid that Dr. Blaisdell says you can drink.
How often do we see people, over-heated and over-tired, drink glass after glass of ice-water! Such a foolish habit often leads to serious results. Ice-water quenches thirst for a moment only. Sooner or later, it weakens the strongest stomach. If you must drink it, sip a little very slowly.
