WATER, DRINK IT
As we are following the disastrous effects on the world known simply as COVID19 or whatever name you want to give this growing debacle, we find ourselves looking for salvation. If you are weak and unprepared for this virus, then the virus does not care about your political views, race, color, creed.
The idea that one belief can possibly even matter at this point is feebleminded. It’s almost as bad as placing a hashtag in a twitter post. Therefore, thinking that it will solve some type of hard coded scenario. Reality is real, and it will not. In a sense, all aspects of life are literal.
So, what does all this rambling in the introduction have to do with anything? The answer is simple and is the solution to almost 99% of the problems faced throughout the world. Hydration, something which should be so unproblematic and elementary, but is not for many through whatever means.
There is a massive outbreak of a virus that attacks the respiratory system. This outbreak has reinforced the concept that people should stop destroying their bodies. Being fat sacks of garbage, most people are too little too late, but they will try. All you need is water to start living healthier, not some crazy gym lifestyle or hiking 41 miles per day.
Let's dive in, shall we? The human body is approximately 60% water, although this percentage can vary. If you are intelligent and have realized that the majority of the body is composed of water. Furthermore, then you have come to the conclusion that it is always vital. If you want to further your knowledge and see how to save your own life, then continue reading because this is juicy stuff if you get my drift.
As you are probably now wondering to yourself, how much of this water is in your organs, tissues etc.? The heart is roughly 75% water, the lunges are roughly 80% water, the skin is roughly 64% water, and muscle tissue and the kidneys both contain roughly 80% water. What we can glean from this is information is that water is 100% needed in great amounts or you will be at a disadvantage at the molecular level just based on simple math.
In addition to sweating, around one cup of water is lost exhaling. Another 6 cups are lost through other bodily functions, along with electrolytes and minerals. Just the math here shows you need water and probably a decent amount if you are active, especially heading into the summer. I don’t know about you guys, but I sweat like a maniac.
Now that we see the overarching theme that water is the building block of life, let’s review what it does and why you need it. Especially during this time of viral outbreak, the COVID crisis we will call it. Let’s start with some pretty simple concepts. Then we can gradually move into greater complexity. Whereby if your brain shuts down you atleast tried and got some information. Thinking is hard and you need water to operate the electrical impulses in the brain, go figure.
As you can imagine the blood stream is essential. Which is a water-based transport liquid that moves fluids. For instance, nutrients such as carbohydrates and proteins are metabolized in the blood. Then transported. As well as communicatory signals for other organs. Your well-trained brain is probably fired up now and has begun computing these complex equations. If you currently are running the above formula then you might conclude that less water aka dehydration is bad, like super-duper bad.
Without water the body cannot move the goods through the economic highways of the body. This process with a lack of water will be working at a reduced rate.
What is also extremely important is the lymphatic system. Which is the system that mainly supports the defense of the body through the immune system. This system is a system of pathways in the body that transports a fluid known as lymph. Which is the white blood cell containing fluid that fights off invaders in the body. We have come full circle now, water is good.
Now we can all see why water is so deadly important, being literally the tractor trailer that transports the goods around the continent that is the human body. The body’s ability to adequately transports the specific materials around is undeniably the single most important aspect of water and there for the need of said water. Therefore, without the glories of water in the human body you can only live 3-5 days max without dying of what I can only assume is a horrifying death at best.
With all the rage going on about the corona virus just drinking water can possibly save your life. It literally is that simple, especially in countries where access to water is as simple as a flick of the wrist, there should be no excuse on that front.
