Today I want to draw our attention to the importance of drinking water.
About seventy-one percent of the earth’s surface is water, (albeit salt water), and even more of it is fresh water.
About sixty percent of our body is water. The human brain is about seventy percent water.
The human lung is about ninety percent water. Water lubricates our joints, cushions our organs, digests our food, and transports waste out of our bodies in urine, perspiration and faecal matter, and helps to control our body temperature. Are we beginning to get the picture? Water is crucial to maintaining our body structure as well as the functioning of our body.

Because water has the ability to dissolve so many substances, it allows our cells to dissolve and make use of the nutrients in the food we consume. So then we can conclude that if we go the length to ensure that we consume a variety of nutrients to improve our health; then it is just as necessary to drink enough water to complete the process. It would be like putting those fertilizer pellets on top of the soil and not watering the soil to give those nutrients the opportunity to be absorbed by the roots.
Water also flushes the waste substances (toxins) out of your organs. Without enough water in our body these toxins not only compromise the proper functioning of our organs but may eventually destroy the organs.
Many fruits and vegetables, milk and other foods contain water, but not in sufficient quantities as is required. It is always necessary to drink additional water.
One’s water needs vary on factors such as climate, body weight, and lifestyle. An average woman needs about 2 liters of water on a daily basis, and men need slightly more. It is not a good idea to replace water consumption with other beverages. In addition to adding calories, some beverages like coffee are diuretics and actually draw water from the body.
Although this rarely happens, it is possible to drink too much water. If water is consumed too rapidly, our kidneys can‘t get rid of the water fast enough. It remains in the body, dilutes the blood, and reduces the proportion of sodium (salt) that is necessary for proper proper body functioning. This can be fatal.
One theory claims that by the time we feel thirsty, our body is already lacking in water. Another theory claims that many times when we feel hungry, we are really thirsty for this life-giving water.
I hope that I have made a good case of convincing everyone to make sure that you drink enough pure clean water every day. The life and health of our body depends on it.
