"You're not sick; you're thirsty. Don't treat thirst with medication."
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj
Why is Water So Important?
70% of the adult human body is comprised of water (more for children). The human eye is between 95% to 98% water. H2O encompasses 71% of the earth and is vital and essential to EVERY living creature in existence on earth. The human body requires H2O more than it requires food. You can survive weeks without food, but only a few days without water. It is medically necessary for BASIC human survival that a person consume half their body weight in ounces of pure water per DAY. Therefore, a 200 lb person should ingest 100 ounces of water daily! 95% of the time, the human body does not distinguish between hunger and thirst. When we think we are hungry, we are really thirsty.
