Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for May 18, 2007

Every alternative health professional will ask you if you are drinking enough water. I love my water now but it was hard getting used to it.

Interestingly, according to this web site, water can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%. I wonder if the Canadian Cancer Society knows this? Is it true fact? Who knows but 79% seems extremely high and yet we have everybody running for a cure that will never happen and nobody ever mentions drinking water. I’d love to see the study that came up with that those stats.

Here are some of the benefits of drinking water.


75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.

In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.

Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as 3%.

One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

Are you drinking 64 ounces of water every day?
