Water… The Best Solution

Water from municipal water supplies contains potentially dangerous levels of chloro- and fluoro-chemicals, lead, fecal bacteria, as well as pesticides and other impurities associated with cancer and metabolic dysfunction.
Your body consists mainly of water (on average about 70%). Your liver, for example, is about 90% water, brain 85%, blood 83% and even the bones 35%.
In a University of Washington study, drinking one glass of water when feeling hungry stopped the hunger pangs in 98% of the dieters surveyed. The main cause of daytime fatigue is simply a lack of water.
Research shows that about 8-10 glasses of water a day may significantly ease back pain and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
If the average person drank at least 5 glasses of water a day (plain water not mixed) the risk of getting breast cancer is decreased by 79%, colon cancer by 45% and bladder cancer by 50%.
A person’s minimal water requirements is half their body weight in ounces. For instance, a 200 pound person should drink at least 100 ounces of water.
Only a 2% drop in the amount of water in your water can bring on mental confusion such as short-term memory loss, being unable to focus and forgetting how to do simple math calculations.
