    It helps keep your body in clean working order. i.e. it fluses out toxins and helps keep the organs healthy.

    Water is required for too many biochemical reactions to list, dehydration is just the symtom of not having enough. Drink plenty and there will be no need to worry.

    in terms of speeding up metabolism, dehydration will slow down one's metabolism so adequate water intake will in effect speed it up if you are not drinking enough in the first place

    it was interesting to find out that water is also used to help with the joints as dehydration leads to friction and deteriation between them

    how much is too much though, i know it depends on your lifestyle, but is there an average amount for example, a person working a 9-5 and does weight training on the same day or doesnt do weight raining on the same day?

    would you suggest relying on the colour of your urine?

    No it's not.

    Either that or my doctor doesn't know the truth.

    What are 'toxins' and what does 'flushes' mean literally? I alwasy conjure up the inage of a load of 'toxins' (whatever they are) in a toilet and drinking water is like flushing the chain with this statement. However if you think about the anatomy of the human body, you'll know this isn;t the case.

    Just coz your doctor says it, doesnt mean it's right.

    water is the solution for which a lot of the bodys chemicals get dissolved in. Try washing your clothes with just washing powder and no water!!!.
