Drink lots of water

Though it has been a long time since I wrote a blog it does feel good to inform the readers once again about water.  I found this article and wanted to share it with you.  It is important to drink lots of water especially during the summer months not to mention during the winter months when one would normally not do so and could get dehydrated very quickly without even realizing it.  The important thing here is that you drink quality water.  The public water that we get in our homes is chlorinated and may have other chemicals to disinfect the water and do other things to it as well.  Personally I feel this water is not good for us to drink and there are many articles out there that show how dangerous these chemicals can be to our bodies over years of ingestion.  None the less, hydrate yourself with lots of bottled water or get an under sink water purifier also known as a reverse osmosis.  The following are intersting facts and statements that show us the importance of drinking lots of water;
