We turn on the tap and it’s there. But what if there were no water?
We cannot live without water. Even the strongest human alive would die in just a few days if totally deprived of all water. Each of us must replace about 2.5 quarts (2.4 liters) of water each day. That’s why water is so important.
Practically every function of our bodies depends on water. Our food is digested in a stomach full of a liquid that’s mostly water. Our blood, which bathes every cell of our body with life-giving fluids, is 83% water. For that matter, each cell in our body is mostly water. The total percentage weight of water in your body, right now, is 70%.
Living near water has been the first human necessity ever since humans first inhabited the earth. In today’s complex society, the water is brought to us.
