Check this out. I found some interesting facts about water and dehydration from my devotional this afternoon. I thought you might find them very interesting.

• Research tells us that drinking eight to 10 glasses of water a day can significantly reduce pain for almost 80 percent of the people who suffer from back and join pain.

• Seventy-five percent of all Americans are chronically dehydrated.

• A mere two percent 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.

• In 37 percent of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it’s often mistaken for hunger.

• One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100 percent of the dieters studied in a University of Washington research project.

• Even mild dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as much as three percent.

• Lack of water is the number one reason for daytime fatigue.

• Drinking just five glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45 percent, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79 percent, and one is 50 percent less likely to develop bladder cancer.


Now we all know that 73.9% of statistics are made up… and I don’t know where she got her info. But I just thought these tidbits were some tasty food for thought.
