perhaps, but you can get sick. applying basic biology the following happens. when you eat and the food is being digested much of your blood is being pulled to your stomach and such because you are digesting food. additionally while swimming you hold your breath a lot. when holding your breath you do not get oxygen adn your body may begin to perform anaerobic respiration meaning that it will create energy without the help of oxygen however a by product is lactic acid which causes cramps. you may start anaerobic respiration because A) you are swimming and holding your breath, B) a lot of blood/energy is being used right now for digestion so you may not have enough oxygen to do both while swimming, C) combination

while you may not necesarily get cramps, and when you get cramps chances are you won't die it is still a good precaution to teach.

The funny thing is, he didn't bother to check his spelling or capitalize anything, but he took the time to censor himself. :lol:


No, I never believed that nonsense; it was nothing more than folk lore. It's not based in any scientific proof, and I really don't trust the info of people who just repeat what they hear without researching it. But really, who cares why you don't hear them anymore, they were annoying anyway.

Nah it's been proven lately that you get enough oxygen to your muscles even while digesting. So it's safe to jump in the pool after eating.

If you go swimming less than an hour after eating, you get eaten by leeches.
