"When you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated"
"The most important life-giving substance in the body is water. The daily routine of the body depends on a turnover of about 40000 glasses of water per day. In the process your body loses a minimum of 6 glasses per day, even if you don't do anything! With movement, exercise and sugar intake etc. you can require up to 15 glasses of water per day. Consider this, the concentration of water in your brain has been estimated to be 85% and the water content of your tissues like your liver, kidney, muscle, heart, intestines etc. are 75% water. The concentration of water outside the cells is about 94%. That means that water wants to move from outside the cell (dilute) into the cell (more concentrated) to balance out things. The urge the water has to move is called hydroelectric power. That's the same electrical power generated at hydroelectric dams (like Hoover Dam). The energy make in your body is part hydroelectric. We just know you wouldn't mind a little boost in energy." Jeremy E. Kaslow, MC, FACP, FACAI.
- Excerpt from "Cardiovascular Efficiency vs. Nutritional Deficiency"
"Most Americans live constantly on the borderline of moderate, to serious, dehydration. The price we pay isn't merely a dry mouth, but a multitude of unnecessary diseases - from headaches to asthma to back pain to cancer. Thirst is not a good indicator of hydration. When you are thirsty you are already dehydrated. Water is critical to get well from virtually every disease."Dr. F. Batmanghellidj, M.D, author of "Your Body's Many Cries for Water"
