    Dehydrates you…

    Which can potentially kill you, by making your different organs fail.

    Well, obviously you’d be dehydrated and unless you drink some water you will be dead in 92 hours or something like that. Pretty sure 92 hours.

    Dehydration can cause the electrolytes in your system to be off balance and cause: dizziness, constipation, chest pain, drowsiness, etc.
    A lot of fluids are consumed from eating foods too; not just drinking.
    If you feel thirsty, you should drink. Simple.

    Makes the cells shrink. When they shrink, they cannot do what they do, as well.

    It’ll mess up your kidneys and it will dehidrate you. Man can go without food quite safely for a very long time but not without water.
    But a couple of glasses a day are ok if you are not sweating, not working out and are in a cold climate place and maybe are eating foods with water in them!

    Your body needs 7.5 quarts of water in it to digest just 1 quart of food you eat each day. You will get a little water from foods, but only if they are fresh. Processed foods are dehydrated and extract water from you. Your organs will pull water from your blood vessels to keep you functioning, but that shrinks the blood vessels and causes a strain on your heart.

    Many bodily functions depend on you getting adequate water each day. Here is what a well hydrated person should consume each day in water:

    Take your total body weight and divide by 2. That number is the amount of water in ounces that you need to drink each and everyday. Along with that, you should consume 1/4 teaspoon of “air dried sea salt” in conjunction with each quart of water you drink. This puts the electrolytes in your body that will give you proper hydration. The typical white table salt you buy in stores like the Morton Salt, for instance, is terrible for you and has loads of chemicals added. Avoid that junk. If you drink ANY diuretic drinks like, sodas, coffee, tea, alcohol, commercially prepared fruit drinks, energy drinks, etc., these all dehydrate you and you will need to add more water to the total to compensate for the water loss due to these diuretic drinks. Take the total ounces of the diuretic drinks and multiply by 1.5 and add that total to the original total to come up with the proper amount of water you need to drink each day.

    The lack of water in your body will take it’s toll big time and you will become a victim of many potential diseases as a result.

    Symptoms of early or mild dehydration include:

    * flushed face
    * extreme thirst, more than normal or unable to drink
    * dry, warm skin
    * cannot pass urine or reduced amounts, dark, yellow
    * dizziness made worse when you are standing
    * weakness
    * cramping in the arms and legs
    * crying with few or no tears
    * sleepy or irritable
    * unwell
    * headaches
    * dry mouth, dry tongue; with thick saliva.

    In severe dehydration, these effects become more pronounced and the patient may develop evidence of hypovolaemic shock, including: diminished consciousness, lack of urine output, cool moist extremities, a rapid and feeble pulse (the radial pulse may be undetectable), low or undetectable blood pressure, and peripheral cyanosis. Death follows soon if rehydration is not started quickly.

    Good luck to you
