DRINKING ENOUGH WATER???

1.   75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.   (Likely applies to half the world population)

 2.    In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.

 3.   Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as much as 3%.

 4.    One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

 5.     Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

 6.    Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers of daytime fatigue.

 7.    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!

 8.   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?
