WateR... yoU're Full of iT!

so you've heard by now
Water makes up 65% percent of the human body & 92% of your blood.  sound like a lot?  it is!  that's exactly why it is so important to Drink Plenty of it!  and if you're still confused as to why drinking pure Water is so important... read on!
the obvious
we all know the importance of not allowing our bodies to become dehydrated... Water prevents dehydration.  but did you know if we drink too little Water we will likely suffer from constipation and increase our risk of heat exhaustion or even heat stroke (the temperature of your body is Controlled through Water).  
but did you know
Lack of Water can also make us more susceptible to asthma attacks, dental disease, kidney stones, and urinary track infections.  'consumer reports on health' warns that if we do not monitor an adequate Daily Intake of Water, we may be increasing our chances of getting a cold or Even Cancer!  if we become dehydrated, we can also suffer from headaches, fatigue, lightheadedness, muscle cramps, and slightly dulled thinking.  
what someone else has to say
paul bragg, a world-famous physical fitness authority (according to the book i'm reading they classify him as this- me- i've never heard of the guy but thought i'd pass on to you what he has to say in case you have) said- "i think that the excessively nervous person and/or the mentally upset person is so obsessed with his/her own worries and hang-ups that he just forgets to drink water and liquids of the right kind.  instead he dopes himself on alcohol, tea, coffee, and cola drink.  this complicates his/her nervous condition and burning, toxic acid forms in the stomach with no water to dilute it.  so on top of his/her nervousness and depression, he/she suffers from sour acid stomach, heartburn, gas-bloat, and other miseries.  instead of drinking water, many people take aspirin, use cigarettes and other stimulants.  remember that the nerves need the correct amount of water to function properly and smoothly.  we Need to drink 6 to 8 glasses of Water Each Day.  you can plainly see that it is possibly to suffer from Water Starvation."
what else does water do
Water has many Critical Benefits, including helping keep us Free from Infections & making spinal fluid to cushion and control the nervous system.  it is also Necessary for All Digestive absorption, circulatory and excretory functions as well as for the utilization of the water-soluble vitamins.  as the book i'm reading "the bible's 7 secrets to healthy eating" by joyce rogers continues saying... 'we think we have to add something to water - tea, coffee, carbonation, flavor or sugar but really what we need is to make a deliberate choice to return to plain old-fashioned water.  and when our taste buds have made the adjustment, how much better everything will taste.  
and what i've noticed
the More Water you drink.... the more Water your body - you- will crave.  and if you happen to be like some i know who say they don't like water - well Make yourself Drink it Anyway!  and again... the more you drink... the more you'll crave.  & just think about it for a moment ... the fact is that Water is something your Body Needs - not an opinion but a Fact.  if someone handed you a glass and said - Drink Up if you want to Live - you would drink wouldn't you?  well here i am -virtually- handing you a glass and telling you to Drink Up! *cheers*
