Charlie Hutch: Osmotic homeostasis. look it up....It is all about blood, extracellular and intra-cellular balance. 60 % of us is 'water'...approximately. your blood must maintain .9% 'salt' . if you under consume water it goes too far up...if you over consume water it goes too far down. if you are healthy your body 'tells' you its thirsty and you should drink something. Most foods are highly saturated with water...grapes are 90% water....the most common recommendation for a 70kg male is at least 1.5 lt. of water per day...My biggest concern is not what this myth does for adults...but what 'soccer moms' do to their children...Children are the highest risk for water poisoning. I use besides thirst the color of my urine...if it is light im drinking enough...if it gets dark I'm dehydrated...the .perfect indicator...'piss'

SkybowKite: sO ACCORDING TO THIS  incredible finding... you should drink 0 glasses of water a day?

Catherine J: Very Good knowledge, thanks a ton!

I also don't believe in any unnatural things!

I reduced 12 lbs by just drinking 8 glasses of normal water/day and with the help of my tracking smartphone app "water meters" by lokesh

Amanda Landry: Drinking water has helped me greatly. However, I do live in a very hot region where dehydration is a problem.

Igor Siduyev: Good day! I'm Courtney.I did -40 lbs in 7 days.Visit hddiet.gs\#E7vi

fractalign: At last the truth is revealed, i asked a doctor about this years ago and he said its actually 8 glasses of fluid a day and that can be anything from tea, fruit, soup and milk. Of course the bottled water companies want you to drink 8 glasses of water a day !

ichew gum: There are several sites involved in signature campaigns depending on where you live as to which is relevant for yourself here's some to get you started (nyscof fluoride)... Portland anti fluoride is another ! be cautious of financing donations unless your convinced of the groups authenticity ! Best wishes :) Sorry about the delay locked myself out of my account and am just back on !

ichew gum: If you are concerned ! first check What your Water suppliers add, call them ! there are test kits for fluoride etc available to check the levels in your water ! If you are still concerned contact other trust worthy sites regards your concerns there are ways to remove these chemicals etc from your water, also add your voice to those who stand against fluoridation ! Remember it remains Better by far to drink enough water than not enough ! :)

ichew gum: Your individual body and daily lifestyle will have to be accessed by you, It changes! Water is fundamental to every cell,skeleton Joint and organ etc ! Myself i find at least 2 or 3 ltrs a day but I also eat plenty of water rich foods; For your scalp include oils into the diet like Avocado's or cold pressed oil's olive,hemp etc daily instead of butters etc, Direct to the scalp top choices are jojoba oil , aloe vera ,including the hair coconut oil , castor oil that will bring back your shine

ichew gum: I'm sorry you cannot rely on Waiting for when your thirsty the problem is that by the time your notice your thirsty the body is already dehydrated !! Just keep a bottle available with you throughout the day and drink regular !

dontDoxmebro: When you drink this much water a day it depletes a lot of your natural salts and you then starve fast food. haha

my12steptruth: The medical industry is pretty consistent in discouraging ANY health change that could actually make you healthier. They are in the business of illness. JUST TRY ONE DAY A WEEK getting 8 glasses of water in one day and you will be AMAZED at the health benefits. Truly amazed.

Amazon Power: 8 glasses of water everyday is essential to a healthy living

Gent G: Listen, you are supposed to drink 6 to 8 cups of water daily but don't forget the water consumption in your food courses.

Bert Middleton: @salm37 Right on!

Bert Middleton: @amtheriver I couldn't agree more, this is just more bullshit that the pharmaceutical companies and the AMA are behind just to keep us functionally sick and dependent on their drugs. You should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and more is better. Who is this guy and what a load of shit!

PinkBlushing: @godkingRoss cheez, i couldnt do that :D

Face Reality: @madiana101 exactly like who drinks 8 glasses of anything a day? that's ridiculous sounds like an addict to me...

Face Reality: that's too darn much. i dont drink 8 glasses of anything a day... please....

salm37: this guy is an idiot!....I drink 3 quarts a day and feel great........you do not get that much water from prepared foods that's stupid.....drink 1/2 your weight in oz. for example....you weigh 200 pounds drink 100 oz...
