We all might have seen, normally parents used to force their kids to drink more and more water, that should be fine as they wouldn’t be asking for it or may be couldn’t able to express the thirst. But have seen few people here in Bangalore made practice of having water forcefully. Especially people working in corp world have adopted or may be brand sake uses branded and stylish container and few even keep track of the quantity to meet day’s target. Though they won’t sweat much; might be due to pressure/tense if I’m not wrong.
If that is the case and if we believe in quote “athe aadre amruthanu visha aguthe”
won’t that applicable to water …?
won’t that applicable to water …?
Let me take an example of commonly used electric free aqua purifier that we may prefer due to save either electricity or budget perspective, and also we have been advised by the vendor to replace chemical battery used in it when indicator turns RED. Won’t this same apply to human kidney?
In Jan 25th 2007 there was a contest "Hold Your Wee for a Wii" held by KDND an FM (107.9 MHz ) radio station in California. In which, Jennifer (mother of 3) participated to win Wii(video game console) for his son and unfortunately died for consuming more water in short period (water intoxication.) Later court rewarded $ 16.5 million as compensation to her family from KDND.
Impact of unnecessary water consumption – It actually put unnecessary strain on your body in two major ways:
1. It increases your total blood volume. And since your blood volume exists within a circulatory system, needlessly increasing your blood volume on a regular basis puts unnecessary burden on your heart and blood vessels.
2. Your kidneys must work overtime to filter excess water out of your circulatory system. The filtration system that exists in your kidneys is composed in part by a series of specialized capillary beds called glomeruli. Your glomeruli can get damaged by unnecessary wear and tear over time, and drowning your system with large amounts of water is one of many potential causes of said damage.
Putting unnecessary burden on your cardiovascular system and your kidneys by ingesting unnecessary water is a subtle process. For the average person, it is virtually impossible to know that this burden exists, as there are usually no obvious symptoms on a moment-to-moment basis. But make no mistake about it: this burden is real and can hurt your health over the long term.
So how much water should a person drink to best support his health?
Hello.. Are we machines to have such protocol across! If you agree each person is unique then how it could be the common to all..? Many of us have been advised that, a person should drink at least 3 – 4 ltr of water per day. But according to Dr Ben’s research, it completely depends on our unique circumstances, including your diet, exercise habits, and environment; rather than min/max on quantity of water that we consume.
If a person having foods that are naturally rich in water, such as vegetables, fruits, and cooked legumes and whole grains, he may not need to drink much water at all. If he do not use much or any salt and other seasonings, his need for drinking water goes down even further.
Conversely, if a person consumes bit salty and spices in his meal, he might need to drink several glasses of water every day.
Regardless of diet, if a person sweat on a regular basis because of exercise or a warm climate, he will need more water than someone who does not sweat regularly.
Ultimately, Dr Ben’s guidance is to follow your sense of thirst.
