When talking about health care one usually thinks about exercising, eating the correct foods and maybe even taking the right vitamins. One crucial detail that some overlook is the need to keep the body properly hydrated. Dehydration can cause severe damage to the body and even death if not kept in check and maintained.
Water is a key element is maintaining a healthy body, apart from keeping it hydrated it helps in removing toxins from the body. Every day the body uses around 700 ml (0.18 gallons) of water to dilute toxins and skin irritants (Dehydration Symptoms Organization [DSO], 2009, p. 1), without the proper amounts of water these dilutions can be affected. A better known analogy of what water does is called osmosis.
