There is a Dehydration epidemic! Freshly Squeezed
Most people are chronically and dangerously dehydrated.
This is because they do not drink enough water. Instead
they drink dehydrating fluids that most people deem more
palatable or pleasant than water, like coffee, tea, cordials,
fizzy drinks or alcohol. The causes of the resultant
diseases are generally not identified my medical practitioners so
they are often treated completely unnecessarily with
drugs which bring with them a whole range of side effects.
(See a BBC
News report about the side effects of drugs, and an article
about it from Jay Cohen, a prominent US medical practitioner.)

How to Avoid Dehydration
To avoid dehydration, adults should drink
2 to 3 litres of fresh, clean water every day, and minimise
the consumption of dehydrating fluids. Avoid drinking during
and within 30 minutes of meals. Drink more if you are exercising
Tap water generally contains many contaminants and
should be filtered by reverse osmosis (see which
water) to reduce fluoride, chlorine, heavy
metals, pesticides, hormones and other contaminants. Bottled
water is of variable quality and may become contaminated
with oestrogen-rich plasticisers from plastic bottles.
Use RO water for all cooking needs too, to
avoid concentrating the chemicals in water in your food.
