You’ve probably heard on several occasions that you’ll only be truly healthy if you guzzle eight glasses of water every day. While this health rule might not be completely true, it still makes an important point -- the human body simply cannot survive without water. According to “Nutrition and Diet Therapy: Evidence-Based Applications,” the human body can live for one month without food, but it can only survive for six days without water. Rather than relying on the outdated eight-glasses-per-day theory, consider your age, gender, health status, environment and lifestyle to determine proper daily fluid intake.
Enhance your life by knowing how much water YOU need.
