71% of the earth is covered in water, and 60% of adults are made up of water. Infants are 75% water, while the elderly are 50% water. The water % varies in different organs, 83% in lungs, 79% in muscles and kidneys, 73% in the brain and heart; 71% in liver and 64% in the skin and 31% in bones .
Water is important for life. It regulates body temperature, maintains blood pressure and allow for healthy functioning of tissues and organs, including nutrient transportation and wastes removal. In the absence of sufficient water or dehydration, physical and mental performances are affected, with accompanying symptoms of headaches, tiredness and irritability. In severe cases, coma and damages in the kidney, liver and brain can occur. Children are at greater risks of dehydration.
The daily water input for a sedentary adult is estimated at 2.5L /day, which comes from beverages (1.5L), foods (0.7L) and metabolic water (0.3L). Water input is equivalent to water output, and water is lost from the body through respiration, sweat, urine and faeces. This water input-output is dependent on factors such as age, gender, health, activity level, and climate .
