|What Water Does in the Body---Some Amazing Facts:
About 75% of the body is water. The blood fluid, of a person weighing 150 pounds has about 10 lbs or 5 qts of water and is 92% water; red blood cells = 65% water, white blood cells = 70% , general body cells - 80% , protoplasm = 75% , saliva (about 3 pts, daily) = 99%, gastric juice (1-2 quarts daily) = 99%, skin perspiration (1-5 pts. daily) = 99%. lungs use up to one quart; kidnesy use 1-2 quarts,; brain is 85% water, nerves 75%, heart=75%, lungs 75%, liver 70%, kidneys = 80%.
Water is the body's solvent; it is the medium of all chemical activities in the body, which are many. Water is the medium of exchange of all life-giving supplies from one point to another until they reach the cells , and of all wastes from one point to another until they are removed by excretion. Without water, the blood could not move.
Water is the lubricant of all moving parts. It is the regulator of body temperature. The body cells are "water-cooled!" Violent exercise continued for 26 minutes would generate enough heat to coagulate the albuminous substances in the body--similar to cooking the white of an egg-- unless this heat were promptly released. The cells are surrounded by water and thus are "water--cooled!"
When there is there is a deficiency of water, the process of elimination
will continue, but to do so the blood and tissues will be robbed of some of
their water content. This will hinder their normal procedures. If this
continues, it may lower blood pressure; headaches , tiredness, and other
conditions may result. Constipation may develop. Kidneys , lungs and pores will
be hindered in eliminating waste from the body and so the wastes will accumulate
all the way back to each cell, and the inside of the body becomes like a
