Drink Your Water

By: Esther Vasa

I am not sure whom to give credit for this wonderful chart. This has been floating around among various health groups am in. The message is loud and clear. Drinking water at the correct time maximizes its effectiveness on the human body.

"Up to 60% of the human body is water, the brain is composed of 70% water, and the lungs are nearly 90% water. Lean muscle tissue contains about 75% water by weight, as is the brain; body fat contains 10% water and bone has 22% water. About 83% of our blood is water, which helps digest our food, transport waste, and control body temperature. Each day humans must replace 2.4 litres of water, some through drinking and the rest taken by the body from the foods eaten." (Source: USGS)
