I heard people from other countries like drinking cool water, which sounds so strange for me. Why Chinese like drinking hot water rather than cool water? Why other country people don’t like hot water? I heard foreign babies even drink cool water and cool milk. Is it true? Why? </p> <p>Why Chinese like drinking hot water rather than cool water?

    Babies in the UK do drink 'boiled water' that has been allowed to cool. I can only assume that your parents were concerned about the safety of the water supply and boiled the water to make it safe. Babies in the UK are fed with milk at body temperature. The water is boiled first and left to go cold before mixing with bay milk and warming it to body temperature. Drinking water is considered healthy in the UK and recommended to drink two litres a day, the only problem that can arise if the water is too cold or adding to much ice can give stomach pains. This can be due making ice with contaminated water.

    Skaught you write total shite.
