Water, the secret of life

According to the recent investigations performed by scientists, 70% of the human being’s body mass is composed of water. Thus, we can openly state how important this liquid is for us.

You have probably read or heard somewhere these figures, it’s a natural resource that we will not be able to survive without. The longest you can survive without eating is around 21 days (3 weeks), however, when it comes to water, it is a totally different story. You can only live without drinking any water from 3 to 5 days, depending on the situation.

 

The importance of water for the human species:

It essential maintaining high energy levels and cleansing our bodies from toxins.

On the other hand, we tend to lose water from our bodies on a daily basis through bowel movement, respiration, and perspiration. If you exercise often, then you already know that physical effort makes you start sweating and increases respiration.

And finally, we need it to revitalize our skin because due to exposure to the sun, it gets dry.

 

Sometimes, you might feel lethargic, sluggish and just completely unfocused. This might happen due to you not drinking enough water. Your body is in need of water to help with fatigue, which can be of both – physical and mental nature. When you’re mentally fatigued, you have decreased attention and feel overall sleepier. On the other hand, physical fatigue will make your muscles ache. That’s why if you ever feel that your mouth (or throat) or eyes are dry, then you should definitely go drink plenty of water.

 

If we examine water further, then we can easily notice that it’s an essential and vital element, not only for humans and animals in general but plants as well. Without it, plants would cease to exist, which will result in a deficit of oxygen in the atmosphere, which would have led to the extinction of many species.

 

 

Furthermore, water plays many different roles other than making our planet habitable; we use water for many different purposes like cooking, showering/bathing, and washing. So we know for a fact that it is an indispensable tool that we use in our day to day life.

 

Next, water is not only helpful for farming and agriculture, which provides food and fuel for us, but it is also an excellent energy resource. It is clean and can be used to power up towns and villages. It is renewable, which means that it is are naturally replenished on a human timescale, unlike petrol.

 

Finally, water can also be used for entertainment purposes! It is used in swimming pools and water parks, which are amazing ways to have fun, unplug and unwind.

 

Unfortunately, we human beings adopt negative behaviors that lead to the pollution of this vital resource, we waste it and pollute it. And if we are not careful then we are going to leave a huge negative impact on the environment, which will backfire and affect us.

 

We must make sure that we’re installing a water-efficient system that preserves water and take conscious action to help not pollute it.

 

For example, you can:

  • Limit washing your car to once per week instead of multiple time.
  • Stop using the toilet as a trash basket.
  • Stop pouring fat from cooking or any other type of oil, or grease down the sink. This will result in less pollution and easier water recycling and reuse.

Conclusion:

We must be aware of how we are using our resources, and make sure that we are not wasting them, to avoid severe consequences, like water scarcity is the lack of fresh water resources to meet water demand.

And finally, we need to understand how important it is for our planet.
