Considering the fact that we are composed of 55 – 60% of water it is amazing that most of us do not have eating and drinking patterns that reflect this statistic, especially in Britain. This book goes into great depth about water and how dehydration is at the root of many health problems from headache and stress through to arthiritus and other degenerative diseases. I'm not sure about his radical claim that dehydration is the root cause of all diseases, but it makes absolute medical sense that our joints, skin and major organs (including our brains) need a lot of pure water each day to function at their best, and to prevent uneccessary future decline. It also flushes out toxins and other waster products that we most definetly don't want hanging around!
"Chronic and persistently increasing dehydration is the root cause of almost all currently encountered major diseases of the human body."
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj
