Summer Heat is Here: Prevent Dehydration

Healthy Hints

The human body is about 60 percent water. Nearly every function of the body requires water. If the body loses as little as two percent of its water, it can result in negative changes of health status. During the heat of the summer, the risk of dehydration and its serious consequences increase. Do you really need to drink eight glasses of water a day? What counts in the quest for enough water? What are the possible consequences of dehydration? How can you tell if you are adequately hydrated? Is bottled water better? Get the answers to these questions and more.
