Water Now

Recently, subject and sales of "water" H2O is getting popular in
Japan. There are parlors and bars that offer to drink only WATER.
Nowadays, water business is good in most countries. There are big
malls where they offer free cold water to shoppers.

Most people say that they drink water when they feel that their
throat is thirsty. However, our research group says that simply
drinking when you are thirsty is insufficient in maintaining the
body's moisture (fluid). On the other hand, too much drinking can
cause "water intoxication" a.k.a. hyperhydration or water poisoning.

To get healthy, let us drink water at the right time and at the right
quantity. But when and how?

Do you know that our body has a certain cell that keeps water in it?
If we do not have such cell in the body, even teardrops won't come
out from our eyes. What is that? Is it a new discovery? It was just
found in 2003 by an American scientist.

The kidneys clean (filters) the blood with water, but don't you know
that the quantity of water that passes the kidneys is about 150
liters in a day!? The average person has approximately 4 – 5 liters
of water in the blood, and the kidney filters almost 99 % of it
repeatedly. Excessive moisture or water is discharged as urine.

We tried to analyze the quantity of sweat and urine after exercise
and quantity of water taken after being thirsty. The result – an
average person lost 520 ml of sweat and urine while they drank only
150 – 200 ml of water. Yet, why many were satisfied with just less
than a half of water intake compare to the 500 ml loss of water from
the body?

It is probably psychological or some mechanical effects of the mouth
that make us feel thirsty. It means that if you do something to your
mouth, although you are losing moisture from the body due to sweat
and urine, you may not feel thirsty at all. Bingo! We discovered that
if you stimulate the mouth, a certain wave or signal will go to the
brain, and you will not feel any thirst at all. Try it by yourself.

The thirst mechanism can be altered by "hallucination". That's what
it means and it is really true.

The water you drink remains first in the stomach, and it slowly moves
to the intestine and from the intestine to the blood. This process
takes a little time to fill enough quantity of water in the blood,
and your brain may still trigger thirst. During this process, you
might drink too much water and may reach to a dangerous state
called "water intoxication" that can lead people to death.

Actually, in order to avoid such dangerous stage, a sensor in the
mouth and throat will tell your brain that water is present in the
mouth, and will no longer trigger thirst. This is the thirst
mechanism of the throat, which prevents you from drinking too much.

Therefore, by means of a certain kind of stimulation in the mouth,
throat wave or signal can cheat the feeling of thirst. Yes, it is
true and it is what we call "hallucination".

Let's chew a candy or gum, or pinch your lips several times, your
thirst will disappear. It is just like hallucination in the brain,
but only momentarily. Soon, you will feel thirsty until real water
reaches your blood.

When the moisture of internal body becomes insufficient, viscosity of
the blood becomes strong (sticky). And of course, there will be a
danger of myocardial infarction and other blood-related death as well
as brain damages or heatstroke.

We lose approximately 2.5 liters of water a day regardless of
climate. Of course, during a very hot summer, you may lose more than
3 liters due to sweat.

Our meals in a day contain approximately 1 – 1.3 liters of water.
Thus, it is necessary to drink some additional 1.5 liters of water to
keep our body's moisture to a normal level.

It is recommended to drink about one glass of water every one hour
during daytime and some cups of coffee, tea, or fruit juice during
morning and evening. It is not recommended to drink too much water in
a short period as the water you drink may just escape as urine. It is
also recommended to carry a water bottle with you during daytime. In
this way, your health condition will be improved dramatically.

We do not recommend drinking carbonated beverages because it contains
sugar and it might make you fat. Coffee and tea contains caffeine,
which increases number of urination and lose more water in the body.
This is just the same to beer and wine. If you drink alcoholic
beverages, you will lose more water in the body. Too much alcohol
might lead to death, too.

Proper drinking of water makes you healthy and young.


Here's some miscellaneous trivia that you may not have known. Test
your knowledge and share what you learn!

* Koala (well known as an icon of Australia) is an Aboriginal word
meaning "no drink". It is because there's no one who saw Koalas
drinking water. Such an idea is factually mistaken as Koalas do drink
water, but only rarely, due to their diet consisting of eucalyptus
leaves, which contain sufficient water.

* Another one is about Kangaroo. A common legend about the kangaroo's
English name is that it came from the Aboriginal words for "I don't
understand you." According to the books, Captain James Cook and his
companion Sir Joseph Banks were exploring Australia when they
happened upon the animal. They asked the natives what the creatures
were called. The local responded "Kangaroo", meaning, "I don't
understand you", which Cook took to be the name of the creature.

* The desert rat is another animal that get their liquid from the
food they eat. Although they don't actually drink, they still need
water from their food.

* Human blood is 83% water. Human bones are 25% water.

* Poor quality drinking water kills the equivalent of 20 jumbo jets
filled with children every day.
