    The following will probably amaze and startle you.


    One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University 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.

    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?

    (No kidding, all of the above are true....)

    Of course, too much water may have strange side effects......

    She wasn't born with those. I think the dr. who did those should lose his license. I drink a lot of water but at 65 I don't think that's going to happen to me.

    :lol:

    The water facts *are* true though...

    Rule of thumb = .5 oz per 1 lb of body weight per day. You have a little more room if you eat a lot of veggies and fresh things that already have water "in them". Eat a lot of bread-chips-packaged things? Need more water.

    I don't disagree, but if I were to drink that much, I would be sloshing my way to the bathroom every twenty minutes.

    Oh my....I don't know if I should drink water or not as I am lacking in the "water balloon" area - I think I will stick to diet pepsi - at least I know what I look like at the end of the day.....:)
