Any discussion on wuxia would not be answered seriously on this thread.Originally Posted by yittz
FYI, in my hospital, we are part of a trial where patients with cardiac arrest is purposely being cooled down in order to induce hypothermia, this is meant to decrease brain injuries.
I would speculate that while the cold nature may help to reduce the body's overall metabolism i.e. reducing the overall anti-oxidants and other injuries to the body, it may also meant that some of the body's enzymes are not performing at optimal efficiency. This may lead to YTZ not being able to generate the strongest internal energy possible; although conversely, it meant that he was able to take in more injury from others and poisons.
An unwanted side-effect for some is that the temperature will encourage mass production of spermatozoa, thus making him very fertile. Not good for a wuxia hero.
