Water - Life & Health


  • If the absolute majority of our body mass did not consist of water, then we would soon be dead.
  • Water has to be continuously replaced. For no water molecule stays longer than 2 weeks in the body.
  • Therefore, a daily water replacement demand is calculated at 0.34 liters per 10 kg of body weight.
  • If someone weighs 70 kg, for example, then 2.38 L of water has to be replaced in the body. How we decide to do this tremendously influences our health.



  • Even living foods, especially fruit and vegetables, consist predominantly of water. Yet we can never eat enough to replace the water we need. Above all, we should not eat so much since our sedentary lifestyle does not require a calorie rich diet. Obesity is one of the biggest health risks of our time.
  • Solid foods are especially needed to gain energy. It is gained by metabolizing carbohydrates.
  • Carbohydrates are made up of carbon and hydrogen. What we need especially is hydrogen. That is why carbon is disposed of as quickly as possible by exhaling about 1 kilogram of carbon dioxide.
  • Carbon dioxide is a deadly gas because in high quantities it overacidifies the body. This occurs constantly when we burn carbohydrates from our food with inhaled oxygen. To exhale this, your lungs need 0,5 liters of water daily.
  • So, if we consume fizzy drinks, we burden our organism further. This is the case with fizzy water, especially with sweet lemonades which are very rich in carbohydrates.
