Facts About Water ?

Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism by as much as 3%. 

One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study. 

Lack of water is the number 1 trigger of daytime fatigue. 

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers. 

A mere 2% 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. 

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
