5 Side Effects Of Cold Water



Generally, water is good for the health.  Cold water can be soothing on a very hot day but there are also potential negative effects, especially when exposure to cold water is excessive or prolonged.

Cold water immersion can place stress on the cardiovascular system. Sudden exposure to cold water can cause a temporary increase in blood pressure and heart rate.
