Subject: Top health myths about water



Water is an amazing substance - we can't live without it and in fact we are mostly made of it.�So it is not surprising that a whole bunch of half-truths and myths exist about water, especially when it comes to your health.

So here are our top 5 myths about water.

Myth 1: We should drink 8 glasses of water a day to avoid dehydration. Probably one of the most widely-believed yet false beliefs about water -

no doubt encouraged by bottled water brands.It's true that our bodies need a fair amount of water every day.
According to the British Dietetic Association, most of us need the equivalent of around six to eight glasses of fluid a day, fluid not water. Much of this can be obtained from the food we eat - fruit and vegeatables are 80-90 per cent water by weight - and other drinks including milk, tea and coffee.

Obviously in hotter, sweatier conditions we need to up our intake to make up for the extra loss, but again, any non-alcoholic drink will suffice.

Your body is also very good at regulating its water levels - it will get rid of excess by sweat and urine and when levels are low you will feel thirsty and compelled to drink.

Myth 2: Coffee, tea and other beverages "dehydrate" you
While it is true that caffeine has a diuretic effect (it makes you want to pee) this is very mild compared with the amount of water contained in the drink.

So as explained above these drinks will contribute to your body's need for water.





Myth 3: Water is harmless (apart from drowning!)

Generally speaking water is a non-toxic substance. But it is possible to drink too much water.
In extreme cases drinking too much water can cause an electrolyte imbalance in the body, known as "water intoxication."

Athletes in extreme sports such as marathon runners have been know to suffer from this condition.
Their sport causes them to sweat profusely, leading to a loss of both water and electrolytes, including sodium.

But if they drink a lot of water in a short period of time without replacing the lost electrolytes, sodium levels in the blood fall, which can be potentially life-threatening.

Myth 4: Bottled water is safer that tap water
Would you drink a liquid containing chemicals that may have been exposed to pesticides, man-made fertilisers and even radioactive materials and destroys the environment?

Then you will probably be happy to pay 1,500 times the going rate to drink water from a plastic bottle.
Tap water is subject to stringent health and safety requirements. It is continuously tested and safe to drink. Bottled waters often come from exactly the same sources as tap water - in fact some are tap water.

Much bottled water is prepared with lower safety standards than tap water, and it consumes vast resources to bottle, ship, market and sell it. That's why it costs around 1,500 times more per drink than tap water, which is safe, cheap, convenient and by the far the most eco-friendly way to get water.

Myth 5: Water can help you lose weight
Actually there is some truth is this idea. But only some.

Going back to myth 1, drinking calorie-free and sugar-free water is a better way to get your daily fluid intake than gulping back sugary, high-calorie soft drinks.

And some studies have shown that if you drink a pint of water before a meal it can help you eat less. But the key point here is that you do in fact need to eat less - the water itself does not in any way reduce your body fat.

Dear Xavierji,

You have not mentioned that you read the Holy Quran, you please read Quran. Then you will become a Muslim. Muslim means those who obey GOD. 
The only one GOD, HE who created everything, unto HIM the return. At the time of resurrection, HE will judge. According to one's life in this world he will enter in Paradise or hell.
Quran is not a story or myth.  It says the real truth.  Only Quran among all books claims that it is from the GOD. No other books in the world claim that they are from GOD.

Peace be upon you

Mohammad Ali

As an atheist I am of the opinion that no religion should be taught in schools since all religions are packed with superstitions without any evidence. Maybe we can teach stories from the scriptures just like other stories of Shakespeare or Harry Potter or Kalidasa are taught.
I am not an expert in myths. I have read a major part of the Bible, far more than most Christian devotees have read. My opinion is that the stories of the Bible are boring are childish.
I have read the Iliad on the Trojan war and and its sequel the Odyssey on the adventures of Odysseus after the Trojan war.  They are far more interesting than the Bible. But I have not read the other  Greek myths.
I have read the Epic of Gilgamesh which forms part of the Babylonian myths. These are also little better than any other myth.
In contrast the Ramayan and the Mahabharath are far more intriguing and mature.. But in the final analysis they are also nothing but myths without any evidence and should be treated like Harry Potter stories which I understand are also very enticing.
I can say that the Mahabharath is the best myth I have read. But I cannot say it is the best in the world since I have not read all the myths of the world.
These myths may have had moral values for the people of those times, places and societies. But they have no significance for today's world. Instead each modern state has hundreds of thousands of rules and regulations enacted by elected bodies. What is more these modern laws and regulations are modified to accommodate changing social realities. In contrast religious laws and regulations never change and leave no room for improvement in an ever changing social environment.
The only people who benefit from religions are the priests. This has been recognized at least 5000 years ago. Thus 5000 or more years ago declared the Vedas to be incoherent rhapsodies whose only usefulness was to provide livelihood to priests. They also held the belief that Vedas were invented by man, and had no divine authority. The same can be said of any religion and/or religious texts.
In many religions including Hinduism and Christianity, fire is still made for poojas and ceremonies by  the ancient way of rubbing two pieces of wood together. It is the same way with all religious practices and morals and dharma or whatever you call it.
In conclusion teaching religion in schools is a sheer waste of time like teaching children to how to make fire by rubbing wood together when we already have matches and other implements which can make fires without even a fraction of the effort in making the fire by rubbing wood together.

I have read the Rig Vedas and read about the other Vedas. All of them are hymns in favor of some of the Vedic gods.
There is no science or Dharma in the Vedas. My number is India-9388605944. Calling me on the phone may not be the best way. Instead cite verses from the VEdas which promote Dharma. I have also cpointed out the violence in Vedic scriptures. But you do not reply. Instead you go on repeating the same thing. This is not a fair discussion.
Dharma means obligations or duties or laws. These change with everyday as the society develops. So dharma written 3000 years ago cannot be useful today since we have a different way of life from the Vedic age.

Garg,
Can you please cite some verses from the Vedas which teach Dharam. The Vedas are nothing but praises to the gods. First read the Vedas and then make such pompous claims.
As for Dharam it is not something fixed. Our sense of ethics and morals changes with time. So what was Dharam yesterday is not dharam today and what is dharam today will not be dharam tomorrow. So to say that dharam should fixed on some ancient scriptures is absurd.
In the past slavery, sati, caste etc were Dharam, but not any more. What is more we now have millions of codes and rules for our modern life. For instance what does the vedas or the bible say about traffic rules, banking rules, cyber laws, copyright laws and so on. Our parliament and assemblies are making rules and laws at every session in accordance with modern life. So why should we go back to our illiterate and ignorant ancestors for guidance on modern life? Ancient laws are as suited for modern life as a chisel and hammer are suited for repairing modern computers.

Vedas are the books that tell you all about the humanity, which is Dharam and not religion.
Dharam is for all men and women and  religion is only for a sect.
Dharam is given by God for the whole universe. Religion is made by a human being.

Hinduism must be taught at High School and university level

Hinduism is complete in its self. It is the religion fit for every type of person. 

Geeta and Adwait are the top subjects of Hindu religion.

IS THERE A LAW THAT BANMING THE TEACHING OF HINDUISM IN INDIAN SCHOOLS

AFTER CHECKING AND SEARCHING AND EXAMINING FACTS UNABLE TO FIND A NEHRU LAW  THAT BANNED TEACHING OF HINDUISM IN SCHOOLS

HOPE TAKE GOVERNMENT TAKES NOTE AND MY FRIEND SHRI PRAKASH JAVADEKAR  TAKES NOTE

History states that British stopped state subsidy of schools and that resulted in  illiteracy.

I have been reading that Nehru banned teaching of Hinduism religion in schools.

While Muslims and Christians are allowed to do so.

On googling I could not find any LAW BANNING THE TEACHING OF HINDUISM ON SCHOOLS

SO WHERE DID THIS MOTION COMES FROM?

THE QUESTION IS -- IS THERE A LAW WHICH OVERTLY OR COVERTLY STOP THE TEACHING OF HINDUISM IN SCHOOLS?

There is no such law that directly bans Hindu religious teaching.

The RTE, however, is causing problems to educational institutions run by Hindus.

Since such institutions are most likely to teach Hinduism-related content, when such schools are suffering (as opposed to minority-run schools), it is indirectly have consequences and impacts the imparting of the Hindu religion and religious believes based teachings to our children and future generation.

PM NARENDRA MODIJI IT IS TIME TO CORRECT THIS ANOMALY.

THUS I PRAY
