Here’s a blog post, Ten reasons to drink more water, on the importance of drinking enough water everyday. But you might not have to follow what has always been said about the need to drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday if you read and believe this. Do note that both links are not scientifically proven and it’s really up to you who you want to believe. For me, I still believe in the notion of drinking at least 8 glasses of water everyday. Maybe because I’ve been brought up with that kind of constant reinforcement of drinking enough water per day.
On a related matter to drinking water, it’s reported on BBC News that Japanese researchers have found that drinking green tea can cut the risk of dying from a range of illnesses substantially. However, it must noted that this could also be due to the whole Japanese diet, which is much healthier than a western one, rather than just consuming green tea. The studies shows that the benefits of drinking green tea seems to be greater in women. Hmmm … maybe I should move on to a total Japanese diet as the Japanese seems to have the lowest rate of heart disease in the world. Hmmm … time to go have my sashimi, sushi, udon, soba, or bento. 🙂
