Everything and anything about water

  2. A human can not live without water. A human can live up to three days - or he/she will perish.

What does water do for the body?

  1. It helps with digestion, absorption, and transportation of nutrients.
  2. It eliminates wastes and toxins from the kidneys, colon, and lungs.
  3. Distributing heat throughout the body and allowing heat to be released through the skin by evaporation. (sweating)
