I would bet money that a majority of people reading this right now are not properly hydrated.
On the average, water makes up 60 – 70% of your body weight. The range is due to the fact that different cells contain different amounts of water. Muscle cells, for ex- ample, are 70-75% water whereas fat cells are only 10-15% water. Therefore, a muscular person will have a larger percentage of his / her body weight coming from water
Dehydration is usually expressed as the loss of a certain percentage of one’s weight. Scientists define dehydration as fluid losses greater than only I% of body weight. Water is lost first from the blood which is 90% water. If water deprivation continues, cells will start to lose their water content.
Why is it so hard to stay hydrated?
Our bodies are constantly losing water. The most obvious way is through daily urine output. If you exercise, you sweat. Studies of athletes have shown sweat losses of 2 quarts per hour while exercising! Most of us will lose less than that on our daily walk/run, but sweating is still a large source of water loss.
Do you drink a lot of water, but you are still dehydrated? You could be drinking the wrong type of water.

West Virginia Declares State Of Emergency After Coal Chemical Contaminates Drinking Water
Residents of nine counties in West Virginia have been told not to use or drink their water after a chemical used by the coal industry spilled into the Elk River on Thursday. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin declared a state of emergency as more than 100,000 customers, or 300,000 people, are without safe drinking water.
“Don’t make baby formula,” said West Virginia American Water Company president Jeff McIntyre. “Don’t brush your teeth. Don’t shower. Toilet flushing only.”
The chemical, 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol (MCHM), is used to wash coal of impurities and spilled from a tank at Freedom Industries into the river. While the amount of MCHM that spilled wasn’t immediately known, West Virginia American Water has been conducting water quality testing every hour. According to Laura Jordan, a spokesperson with the water company, they believe the chemical is leaking at ground level and “there is a possibility this leak has been going on for sometime before it was discovered Thursday,” WSAZ reported.
West Virginia American Water has emphasized that once contaminated by MCHM, the water cannot be treated. As a result, schools in at least five of the counties will be closed Friday and hospitals, restaurants, nursing homes and other establishments in the area are also banned from using their water as the entire system is flushed out and testing continues. As of early Friday, Freedom Industries, “a full service producer of specialty chemicals for the mining, steel, and cement industries,” had yet to comment on the spill.

How good is bottle water for your health?
Here is a photo of your mountain stream bottle water!! The only thing bottle water does, is not kill you right away. It is more of a slow death. I can not name one good thing about bottle water. It is a marketing dream and the people have been taking for a ride. Cost 10,000 time more than tap water.
The water that you put into your body is more important than the food you put into you body. One gallon of water weighs 8 pounds, when was the last time you eat 8 pounds of food in one day? Ok maybe at thanksgiving!! Lol On most days you will eat about 1-2 pounds of food and drink 6-8 pounds of water. You can go forty days without food, but only 3-4 days without water. So what is more important? Food or Water.
Three types of water
- Utility grade water
- Working Grade water
- Life giving water
Ditch the bottle and drink only Life Giving water
