After air (oxygen), water is the most important input for survival. Food comes next.

Water is the pricipal chemical component of your body, making up about 60% of your body weight, Every system of the human body, that means, all the complex physiological functions of the body, depend on water for its proper functioning, For example, the renal system, which is the excretory system desined to flush out toxic wastes from the body will cease to function if there is no sufficient quanity of water in the body and the person will die ina matter of days due to the accumulation of toxic wastes in the organs, The circulatory system which carries oxygen to each and every cell, takes blood to the lungs for purification, takes in impure blood from all organs of the body,carries nutrients to all the cells of the body, is dependent on blood which is mostly water Similarly other vital systems like the nervous system etc etc all are dependent on the water, Dehydration sets in in case, we donot drink water, and the person slowly but steadily nearing his death

Water regulates the body temperature, as the cooling and heating is distributed through perspiration
Water helps to alleviate constipation by moving food through the intestinal tract and thereby eliminating waste- the best detox agent
Regulates metabolism
Water also plays a very key role in the prevention of disease. It has been shown that drinking at least eight glasses of water daily can decrease the risk of colon cancer by 45%, bladder cancer by 50% and possibly even reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Water makes up more than two thirds of the weight of the human body, and without it, humans would die in just a few days time. A mere 2% drop in our bodys water supply can trigger signs of dehydration: fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on smaller print, such as a computer screen. Mild dehydration is one of the most common causes of daytime fatigue. An estimated seventy-five percent of Americans have mild, chronic dehydration and most are not even aware.Water is important to nearly every aspect of the human body. The body will not operate properly without as our cell and organ functions, within our anatomy and physiology depend on water to function.

From a biological standpoint, water has many distinct properties that are critical for the proliferation of life that set it apart from other substances. It carries out this role by allowing organic compounds to react in ways that ultimately allow replication. All known forms of life depend on water. Water is vital both as a solvent in which many of the body's solutes dissolve and as an essential part of many metabolic processes within the body. Metabolism is the sum total of anabolism and catabolism. In anabolism, water is removed from molecules (through energy requiring enzymatic chemical reactions) in order to grow larger molecules (e.g. starches, triglycerides and proteins for storage of fuels and information). In catabolism, water is used to break bonds in order to generate smaller molecules (e.g. glucose, fatty acids and amino acids to be used for fuels for energy use or other purposes). Water is thus essential and central to these metabolic processes. Therefore, without water, t ...more
