You always hear that you need 8 glasses of water a day in beauty articles. Elle Macpherson swears by it.
Water is the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off! Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, and an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.
NY Times reported in November that in the past year, two large studies found a lower risk of long-term kidney problems among people who drink more water and other fluids daily.
In a report published in the journal Nephrology in March, researchers at the University of Sydney in Australia and elsewhere followed more than 2,400 people older than 50. Those who drank the most fluids, about three liters daily, had a significantly lower risk of chronic kidney disease.
In Asian medicine bags under the eyes indicate Kidney-system deficiency. Chinese herbalists say that kidney deficiencies can lead to more than circles under your eyes- you can end up with premature aging and hair loss, impotence and infertility, and ankle, knee, and lower back problems. Water is healing.
Ok drinking lots of water can detoxify us,make us thinner and possibly more beautiful. But what if the water is toxic. That's a growing argument in the US right now because people are getting sick of mandated fluoridation in the US water supply.
What can you do? Well don't just take our word for it. Do your own research about fluoridation. When you're really pissed off start writing letters to your city commissioners, mayor and other elected officials and try to get a removal of fluoridation from your local water supply on next November's ballot. In most cases this is city or county legislation, which is great because it makes it easier to do something about. In the mean time you might want to get a super duper water filter, one that filters fluoride. They're more expensive, but worth it.
