From the Author
"The human body is like an envelope encasing 20 trillion living cells. Each cell swims in a fluid of salty water. All proteins, minerals, vitamins, fats, and other molecules are suspended in that water. Water is not just present in every cell, it is essential to its survival. Good hydration provides healthy cell repair and regeneration. An improperly hydrated cell is weakened and more susceptible to infection and alteration (malignancy). We humans walk through life carrying around approximately 10-13 gallons of water. A deficiency of only 10% can lead to chronic health complaints. Subtle dehydration is alleged to afflict 30% 50% of Americans. Water cushions bones and joints, transports nutrients, flushes toxins, regulates body temperature, and empowers the body's natural healing process. You cannot achieve optimum health without accommodating your bodies many needs for water."
