Appreciating the intrinsic ingredient of life -- Water (1)

Many may claim that they are familiar with water
which is essential for survival of all living kinds on Earth.

knowing about water is one thing;
appreciating water is another thing.

The fact is
many people take water for granted.

This can be observed when people:

1. seldom take responsibility to hydrate themselves
(e.g. consider bringing water durng outing as a hassle)
2. avoid water during sickness (e.g. afraid of frequent urination or swelling)
3. think that beverages are same as water (e.g. quenching thirst with soft drinks)

I remember a lecturer mentioned,
during my 3rd year undergraduate school, that
without the participation of water,
nothing (includes good nutrition and good medicine)
will work...

This is because many biochemical molecules
needs to be hydrolysed or dissociated by water
before their active structures are unveiled
and become functional.

All living things which are aggregates of biochemical reactions,
naturally will stop functioning (or malfunction)
when there is no participation of water.
Hence, water should be kept in an abundant state at all time,
to ensure robust biochemical functions in our body (ie vitality).

Happy drinking :P
