Dehydration Water essential to health maintenance? It is a fact that water also known as H20 is the  most essential element, next to air, to our survival. Two thirds of the weight of a human  body is made up of water, and if a person was to go without water for a few days that  person would die. Water is an important essential of the body and it cannot work without  it, just as a car cannot run without gas.  Also water protects our body from diseases,  drinking eight glasses of water a day can decrease the risk of colon cancer by 45%,  bladder cancer by 50% and it can potentially reduce the risk of breast cancer.  What happens to the body when it does not get the water it needs? If one person fails to  have enough water, he or she can end up with having a dehydrated body that is when  the water level in the body is extremely low. And when a person becomes dehydrated

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
