Do Most Adults and Children Drink Enough Water?
Without enough water, we die. Our bodies run on water and oxygen. We can live for weeks without food, but we need water every day. Without enough water, our bodies and brains will shut down. We don’t always know when we are thirsty but, as our bodies began rationing water, when we are in a water drought, we might get dry eyes. In today’s world, we are so busy that we don’t realize that our body is just thirsty. We just eat some food or drink some other beverage. Should we wait until we are thirsty before we drink water? As we proceed past adulthood our bodies still need an abundant supply of water.
Will Other Fluids Replace Water Needs in our Bodies?
I have learned that warm water is the nicest drink for me. A cup of water each hour works just fine for me. I now find it tastes better than coffee, tea, or a sweetened and flavored drink. I found that if I drink a cup of water each hour my food digest well and I am more energized.
Can A Shortage Of Water Cause Kidney stones?
I have read that every desert dweller has kidney stones. The job of our kidneys is to help keep our blood dilution at about the same consistency as the salty seas. We need salt and water to do that. If we don’t get enough salt we retain more water to keep that.
