Though many people may find the results of the test paradoxical, there is a logical reason that hot drinks on hot days are effective at cooling people off. With the exception of individuals with conditions that prevent it, every person sweats. It is an integral process of the human body that helps maintain body temperature and prevent overheating. When we sweat, heat causes the sweat to evaporate, thus cooling us. Hot drinks trigger the body’s sweat response and cause us to sweat more, resulting in more cooling. Cold drinks may inhibit the sweat response, leading to higher temperatures.
