Water 101


70% of our bodies is made up of water. A healthy person can drink about 3 gallons (48 cups) of water per day. Coffee contains caffeine and can act as a mild diuretic, preventing water from traveling to necessary locations in the body. Pure water (H2O) has a neutral pH of 7, which is neither acidic nor basic. Water dissolves more substances than any other liquid. Wherever it travels, water carries chemicals, minerals, and nutrients with it. 
  1. Of all the water on the earth, humans can used only about three tenths of a percent of this water. Such usable water is found in groundwater aquifers, rivers, and freshwater lakes.
  2. The U.S. uses about 346,000 million gallons of fresh water every day.
  3. About 80% of our water is used for irrigation and generating power.
  4. An average person in the U.S uses anywhere from 80-100 gallons of water per day. Flushing the toilet actually takes up the largest amount of this water.
  5. Approximately 85% of U.S. residents receive their water from public water facilities. 
  6. By the time a you feel thirsty, your body has lost over 1% of its total water amount.
  7. The weight you directly lose after intense physical activity is weight from water, not fat.
