“The Surprising Cause of Memory Problems, Bladder Cancer and Other Dangerous Conditions”

Ann Grandjean, associate professor of medical nutrition education at University of Nebraska Medical Center of Omaha states how difficult it is to pin point exactly how much water an individual needs. Being that the human body is made of 70% of water, it isn’t enough to maintain good health. Everyone’s activity levels, metabolism, and environmental factors such as heat and humidity are different. Some individuals may need more water than others. Water is an essence of life.

A plant with no water, a birthday cake without candles, it just can’t be allowed just as a human without water. Keeping in mind that June, July and August are the hottest three months throughout the year it’s understood that these three months should be the most hydrated. It is important to stay hydrated throughout the entire year, rain or shine, hot or cold.

Not staying hydrated may result in mild, moderate or severe health issues within the function system of the human body. These health troubles can be prevented with just the right amount of water on a daily basis. American academy of sports physicians and Gatorade sports science institute have adopted the formula of ½ your body weight in ounces as a guideline for the amount of water recommended. For example, a person who weighs 200 pounds would require about 100 ounces of water. The other guideline for knowing if water intake is efficient is to measure color of urine, the clearer the better.
