I ask myself a very curious question ” How water quenches thirst?”. What happens to our body when we feel thirst or during dehydration if we don’t drink required amount of water. The two most important parts of the body are BRAIN and HEART. Drinking too little water has direct effect on these two organs. Water dilutes blood which then flows with higher speed in body. This means that scarcity of water makes the blood dense which has to do more effort to flow in our body. When blood flows with lot of difficulty in our body,heart has to do lot more work to distribute blood in each and every part of body. Too much work by our heart leads to so many heart ailments all commonly called HEART DISEASES. Also blood is a carrier of oxygen and distributes oxygen to each and every cell in the body. Dense blood has less oxygen than the diluted blood. When oxygen supply is too little anything dangerous can happen. So be careful.
Living cells are controlled by a process called OSMOSIS. This is the movement of a liquid from one side of a semipermeable membrane with lower concentration to the other side of the membrane where we have a liquid of higher concentration. This results in diluting the liquid of higher concentration.
Percentage of water in human body is:: Brain 75%, Heart 75%, Lungs 86%, Muscle 75%, Liver 85%, Kidney 83%, Bone 22%, Blood 83%, Saliva 95%.
These figures are so dreadful when we talk of drinking too little water. Be careful save yourself.
