News24xx.com -  Cough is often experienced by anyone. Because cough is a familiar thing in the world of health.
Cold drinks are often accused of being a major cause of throat problems. Though health experts agree that ice is not the main reason if someone can have a cough.


Dr. Andi Khomeini Takdir Haruni, from the Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI), said there is no connection between consuming ice or cold drinks with cough, flu or fever.


Most coughs are caused by viruses. While the rest are caused by bacteria, fungi, allergic reactions, and the presence of irritants or pollutants such as cigarette smoke and gas. These viruses are usually transmitted between humans in different ways.


Some go through direct contact with an infected person, or through the touch of contaminated objects and touch the mouth, nose, or eyes.

People believe the myth if cough was caused after consuming ice or cold drinks, due to the limited medical knowledge. Ice is not the main reason but if consumed when coughing can actually get worse.


Emilia E. Achamadi, clinical dietitian, nutrition expert and disease prevention, said eating ice could aggravate the condition of a person's cough.


That's because the nature of the cold ice can stimulate the upper respiratory tract so as to irritate.


The myth of water causes coughing can be true if the ice in the consumption is made from water that is not sterile, dirty, so many germs or bacteria.


For you who likse to drinks of cold water, do not worry you will get cough or flu from consuming too much. But do not forget to make sure the ice you consume really comes from a guaranteed source.
