  1. I’ve done that, Reba– guess we were thirsty, and a cup of coffee wasn’t the same as water for our bodies. Water comprises 75% of our body and 85% of our brain. As we age we tend to dry out – and if we don’t want to be hung out to dry, we must replenish our body’s need for water by drinking at least one litre of water per day. However, some researchers such as, Fereydoon Batamanghelidj, M.D, who has researched hydration for several decades, state that we need to drink ½ of our (Imperial) body weight in ounces of pure water every day. (If you weigh 150 lbs you should be drinking 75 ounces of water.) Our body fluids – blood, lymph, cerebrospinal fluid, saliva, urine, synovial fluid (in joints), extracellular fluid, tears are all evidence of the importance of water in our bodies.
