Why do you need to wear an ice pack in the winter?
A hockey player may have a long-standing goal to keep his body cool and keep his mind sharp, but he also may be worried about having a cold, according to a new study.
“We’ve seen that ice packs actually make it harder for a cold person to stay cool,” said Dr. John S. Reitz, the director of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at the National Institutes of Health.
Reith said that “ice packs” are a common misconception.
“Most people think that they’re only good for hockey, and that they protect against cold, or you’re wearing them on the bench, and it just doesn’t hold up to the science,” Reith told Fox News.
He added that “Ice packs are not really good at all, they’re just not the most effective.”
The study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at the effectiveness of ice packs for people between the ages of 13 and 25 who were given two ice packs and one placebo during a 30-minute session.
The ice packs were made of a thin layer of silicone, a polymer called ethylene glycol, and a liquid that was also made of ethylene, which is found in plastics.
After the session, researchers looked at heart rates and respiratory rates.
They also measured saliva and skin temperature.
Participants in the study were given either a placebo or a placebo with either a 1.5-ounce or a 3-ounce of frozen chicken breast.
“They were given one ice pack per day, one ice bag per day,” Reitz said.
The participants who received the frozen chicken breasts had lower blood pressure and heart rate than those who got one of the ice packs.
In addition, there was no difference in respiratory rate or saliva temperature between those who received one of these ice packs or those who didn’t.
Reitzer said the results are “really encouraging” because “they’re showing that ice can actually protect against a lot of cold.”
However, Reitz warned that “we don’t really know the mechanism” behind these effects.
He said the researchers did not find any significant differences between the two groups in blood pressure, heart rate or the level of saliva, suggesting that it may be the placebo effect.
“There’s no evidence that this is really helpful for people,” he said.
Reiff said that the “science is not there yet to say that it’s good or bad for you,” but “we do know that it works.”
Reitz added that there are some other health benefits to wearing an ice cream dispenser: “It’s really important that people get their ice cream in the cold and keep it that way.
That’s a really important way to help prevent hypothermia.”
