#1.  75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half the world population) 
#2.  In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.

#3.  Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%. 

#4.  One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study. 

#5.  Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue. 
#6.  Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
#7.  A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with
 basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page. 
#8.  Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it
 can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer. 

Are you drinking enough water?
