Drinking a cinnamon water drink may not be as safe as you think, according to a report published by Healthline.
The drink, commonly referred to as “cinnamon water” because of its sweet and cinnamon flavour, is known to contain harmful chemicals and is often sold as a home remedy.
A study in the journal Preventive Medicine found that the drinks were not safe for people who were drinking the water at home.
The researchers used a water sample taken from a home in the US state of Colorado, which has been associated with the highest rate of coliform bacteria in the United States.
In a previous study, the researchers found that coliform counts increased after drinking a cinnamon drink at least twice a week.
The team said it was not clear whether the increase was linked to the drink being made from fresh cinnamon leaves, which are not grown commercially.
The report said there was a lack of scientific evidence to support the safety of drinking cinnamon drinking water.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not recommend using the water for anything other than personal hygiene, but experts say it may be useful for preventing colds, flu and other infections.
Coliform bacteria is a type of bacteria that can cause inflammation in the body.
Symptoms of a coliform infection include fever, headache, and muscle aches.
There is no evidence that drinking cinnamon is associated with an increased risk of colitis, the report said.
The CDC said there is no data to support whether drinking cinnamon will make you more susceptible to colitis or if it would reduce the severity of the infection.
A spokesperson said that the FDA did not recommend against the consumption of cinnamon water.
“In general, it is safer to consume fresh or chilled water than it is to drink cold water.
There are risks associated with drinking cold water, such as diarrhea and constipation, but the majority of cases of coli do not occur when drinking cold or hot water,” the spokesperson said.
“There is no proof that drinking water from a local source with a high concentration of bacteria could actually increase your risk of getting colitis.”
