Water in Life
Each day, we should drink at least eight glasses of water.
One gallon of water weighs 8.34 pounds!
The water that comes out of our faucet is not the same quality as the bottled water you buy at the store by EPA standards.
The human body is almost 70 percent water. Every part of our body uses water.
People can live several weeks without food, but only a few days without water.
Tomatoes are 90 percent water, potatoes are 80 percent water and chickens are 75 percent water.
