                                                          (Likely applies to half the world population)

2) In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak
that it is mistaken for hunger.

3) Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.
4) One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs
for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of
Washington study.  

5) Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

6) Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of
water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain
for up to 80% of sufferers.
7) 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.  

8) Drinking 8 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.
