Drink more water, please! I want you to stay around a little longer… The following message would be a good one to print off and put on your fridge.
Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
As we age, thirst becomes a less sensitive indicator of dehydration. Up to half of all Americans suffer chronic mild dehydration that can cause fatigue, headache and loss of appetite. Women should aim for about nine cups of fluids daily; men should try for 12. Drinking more than six glasses of water each day cuts the risk of developing bladder cancer in half. Some evidence suggests that staying well hydrated reduces the risk of colon and breast cancer.
