Drink More Water (With A Word Of Caution)

Another forwarded email too funny not to share.

The following will probably amaze and startle you.   

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

Lack of water
is the #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.

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.

Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
 

(No kidding, all of the above
  are true....)

Of course, too much water may have strange side effects.

Hahaha. That picture is hilarious. I drink a lot of water but it still isn't as much as Dr. recommends. I really try but because I have to pee so much I usually only make it to about 5 glasses a day. I'm workin' on it!
