It's very hot here in China, so I really like to have one or two ice cream every day, even at night, however the ice cream is freezing, when I felt very cool after having it. On other side, I worried it is bad for my teeths, because it is so cold. Mylotters, do you like to have ice cream? Do you worry it will hurt our teenths?

Good day to you bettydeng5, I dont think ice cream is bad for our health. Hence, sugar are good enough for our health. Since it do gives energy if we just take the right amount. However, if we have had take too much ice cream, still, it will not affect our health, as long as, you drink a lot of water. The intake of too much ice cream will brought so much sugar to our body, for this reason, we need to drink a lot of water so that the sugar will be wash away properly to our blood vessels. Aside from that, the water will help our body to neutralize the sugar. In addition, the water will also help our veins to excrete those unwanted sugar out from our body. So, there will be no harmful or bad effect to our health if you eaten a lot of ice cream, as long as you drink a lot of water. And to our teeth, as long as we brush properly, sweets coming from the ice cream will also be washed away. Then, might be ideal to gargle an amount of mouthwash to ensure that the sweet taste was removed from the gums of the teeth.

Yes I agree with you. Eating ice cream provides a calcium in our body. And calcium helps control our blood pressure.So eating ice cream will not be harmful as long as not overload on sugar.

Well I just think it's bad because most ice cream is unhealthy. I only drink some cold water, but not as cold so that it hurts my teeth. You should just stick to water instead of ice cream. I rarely have ice cream but that's because I don't really like it.

Hi, Eating an ice-cream on hot weather is the best. I also love to eat ice-cream after a hectic hot day outside. That is why I always standby a tube of ice-cream in my fridge, in case I need to eat,then just grab it from the fridge. I don't say that it is bad to eat ice cream everyday,but control the portion. Don't eat too much and always drink warm water after eating an ice-cream. When you are having a cough,that is the best to avoid an ice-cream.

Actually ice will not really refresh you. Maybe while eating you will feel like refreshed coz it's cold but actually after eating ice cream your body will most likely grow warmer because ice cream contains lots of sugar and milk as well which do not really refresh the body. I only eat ice cream occasionally. I am so health conscious and would not eat sweets that much.

I think it's not good to have ice cream every day. It would create a habit for seeking sugars when you're older and have conditions. I think most would feel it's fine when they're still young, but experience it's ill effects when they're already older and have diabetes. You better start changing your habits while it's still early. Than regret sooner or later. Good luck!

I love ice cream, but don't have it every day. When it is cold out I don't have it at all. When I do have it, I try to get fat free or better yet frozen yogurt. Yogurt isn't quite the same, but it's close and better for you. I don't worry about it hurting my hips, not my teeth.

Hello bettydeng5, Yes it was extremely hot in the USA too. I love ice cream. However, because of the fat and cholesterol I had to cut back. There is low fat ice cream, but I eat yogurt freeze, or sherbet. Although, sherbet has lots of sugar in it. Therefore, I drank water and iced green tea to stay cool. :)

Ice cream is one of my desser passions! Having it every day does sound like a heavenly idea. In reality, it is probably not the best food choice to be consumed on a daily basis. This is something that should be eaten in moderation. it is just better for our health.

Too much is really bad for your health. As for me, I really try to avoid ice cream because I can usually get tonsilis from it even if I brush my teeth and gargle mouthwash right after eating. You should know your tolerance to diseases that you might have for eating too much ice cream. But since you mentioned it, hmmmm.. I'm now craving for ice cream. :(

Yes it's bad for your health. but there are alternatives for those hot days like cold fruit shake or cold H2o.

As long as you aren't fat, it's fine. Just be sure to brush your teeth before you go to bed. I would love to have ice cream every day, but I need to loose weight, so I only have it once or twice a month.

...i love ice cream ever since i was young, although it may depend upon the flavor...with regards to hurting our own teeth...as long as you know the limitation..also, i don't think it will affect it that much..use the power of your tongue to protect your teeth if it is very cool..in that way, you can prevent it from hurting your teeth..

It's really good to chill when there's a hot condition of temperature in China. I used to eat Ice cream a lot. I don't know if there are scientific explanations about that. What I know is that eating with something sweets and not brushing your teeth right after will surely make the bacteria progress to destroy your teeth. I hope this respond would be helpful to you. Enjoy China.

I think it is not good to eat ice-cream everyday. Everything is the same, if you do too much, it becomes useless.

It wouldn't be healthy eating too much ice cream. I only eat ice cream occasionally though i really like it. Eating too much ice cream might damage our teeth because it has an ingredient of being sweet.
