Drink Enough Water - Here is why!
On this occasion of World Water Day, I thought why not share the importance of Water for heath and also why does everyone always link every health related issue to lack of water consumption.
I am sure you must have also heard this phrase, "because you drink less water" for n number of times. But do you know why do they say so? Let's find out today. But before that lets see why is World Water Day celebrated.
1993 was the first year when World Water Day was celebrated with the main intention of spreading importance of freshwater. It is about taking action to tackle the water crisis globally.
The solution to this global issue is not just in the hand of one or two or a few individuals, but in every individual living and using water for their personal needs. Sit back no more, save water and use safe water.
Anything too much or too less is bad. That's definitely true, not just with foods, but water as well. Let's find out why is water essential for our body, even though our body is made up of 60% water (percentage reduces with increase in age).
