Wow! Who knew that advocating water consumption would stir up such an interest! It's true, as the Snopes article points out, that there is no scientific research prescribing a specific amount of water per day per person--hence my original article comment about the "recommended" amount, not the "required" amount. That recommendation can certainly vary depending on who you talk to: 8-10 glasses, half your body weight in ounces, clear urine, etc., etc. The point I'll stand by is that water is necessary to hydrate the cells and promote liquid and solid waste elimination and most people could drink more--especially here in my climate in the Arizona desert. Bottoms up!
