Subject: The positive effects of water
Are you drinking enough water?
We all know that water is important but I've never seen it written down like this before.
75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
For 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.
One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy
short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the
computer screen or on a printed page. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily
decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast
cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
