Washington Post, May 16, 1880. You don’t even want to think about the physiological costs of cold water on a gutfull of mince pie.
This brand of snake oil seems to be going around again. We had a fitness and nutrition “counselor” come in to talk to our company a while back, and mixed in with all kinds of babble about which foods “nourish the cell” he recommended drinking room-temperature water.
Food fads are indeed subject to eternal recurrence. This could be a good moment to invest in blackstrap molasses, which hasn’t been heard from since the 1950s or so.
I’ve seen blackstrap molasses promoted semi-recently as a good source of some nutrient or other for vegans. I can’t remember specifically what.
I believe it’s a recommended substitute for protose.
Apple cider vinegar, anyone? Brewer’s yeast?
Or we could dip further into the past and revive Fletcherizing: “Nature will castigate those who don’t masticate!”
“And gravely exacerbate all those who masturbate.”
2nd thought: “gravely deteriorate” would have been a better word choice.
