    According to my Doctor we should drink our body weight in ounces every day. So, Fat a$$ Michelle is on target here. But I wonder why she does not shed a bunch of pounds like she is trying to convince everyone else to do.

    So, a 180lb man should drink 180oz of water each day? That is almost 1-1/2 gallons of water per day. Maybe for a DOT worker in July. I would not recommend that for an officer worker in January.

    @WMCOL
    I don't know. Michele Obama is telling me I need to drink more water. I have @fraps telling me his doctor said I need to drink a gallon and a half per day. I know that beer was invented as a method of purifying water to make it fit for human consumption. The way I see it, Michele Obama wants me to drink 15 beers per day.

    I guess if the First Lady says so... I gotta do what I gotta do.:-D

    Back in the day, the colonies drank mostly beer and tea because the modification of the water helped eliminate the majority of nasty bugs in it that made people sick. It's not the best option for us now because we have purification abilities that they didn't have at the time, but it is an option. So enjoy that beer!

    Everyone should drink a glass of water before bed and first thing when they get up in the morning. A lot of times being tired is just dehydration. I don't drink soda or coffee. If I drink anything besides water I drink unsweetened ice tea.

    Staying hydrated keeps your organs lubricated, your plasma concentrations to and your hematocrit levels low so your blood is more liquid and less viscous making it less likely to cause high blood pressure and lowers the risk for stroke.

    Yep just sucks if you have an enlarged prostate! As we get older we dehydrate much easier same with young children. The elderly and very young need more water than the average adult. But yes the proper amount of water is important for keeping your blood viscosity at the appropriate level.

    If you donate blood and you normally feel weak, tired, or headaches then try drinking a big bottle of water prior to donation. Studies have shown that being extra hydrated prior to blood draws tends to cut down on the negative side effects from donating blood.

    @DrNickels ...It also plumps up your veins and makes them easier to
    stick, and it takes less time, as the blood runs faster. You should start
    the day before you give...drink, drink, drink, water, that is. Lol

    You should drink the amount of water that your body tells you to. Drinking too much can kill you, and stay away away from the cancer causing treated, fluoridated, agricultural run off coming through your pipes.

    ...drink more water...what kind of campaign is that!?
  • #66

    Probably, but I don't think people drink enough water to ever hurt them. But yes, drinking polluted water will kill.

    Its not a campaign but if you understand the geography of the US, it kind of is. The US has an obesity issue, not to mention, a country that probably thinks soda is considered a water. With that kind of mentality, Drink More water is a campaign. The US is not a healthy country people wise.

    @Starsplash, do you think that the U.S.'s obesity problem has more to do with the growth hormones injected into "livestock". Or the insane amount of antibiotics (antibiotics also cause growth) in meat, and dairy? You are what you eat. As people grow, so do their appetites, and they consume more. Most people aren't even aware this is happening to them. You would think that the first lady of all people would have that kind if insight, before she went on with this....movement of hers. Let's not forget GMO's that alter our DNA. Her husband is the one that put Monsanto in the USDA, and FDA afterall. Also, with her influence on the public, she should be knowledgeable about what she....for lack of better words..'pushes' on other people. Did she ever warn about water toxicity? Did she explain that too much can kill you? Did she explain floride? Did she discuss the dangers of cancer causing agricultural run off that many of us have on tap?

    I think she means water treated with hydrofluorosilicic acid and also containing arsenic, chlorine, sodium fluoride, lead, and pharmaceutical drugs =)

    I'm gonna give Michelle Antoinette the benefit of the doubt here. Study after study has shown that drinking water is much better compared to drinking sodas and artificial juices. Got one of those PUR water filters a few years back and I have save a considerable amount of money from drinking filtered water (not to mention that I don't get sick as often and have more energy throughout the day). So yea, Michelle Antoinette and Evil Longoria get a pass from me on this one.

    It's difficult to imagine how a recommendation to drink water can be controversial, but I have faith in several Politixians to find a way. ;-)

    @tomincali I agree, how many people have not heard this for years. This is nothing new or news worthy, Could they not come up with a real issue? Water..really?

    Actually liquid intake from all sources is what is important, not just water. Vegeables are 90% liquid and meat is 50% liquid. So if you are eating properly most of the liquid need is being met. Of course the liquid need is greater when doing strenuous activities where perspiration is a factor.

    I really can't take anyone seriously who tells me to eat or drink more or less of anything if they don't know how much I already consume.. How about we start with don't kill people.

    Pure genius. I've never heard that "drink more water" thing before. Tomorrow I'm gonna get a tattoo. Thanks Michelle, I'd be lost without you.

    @ahsum99ss Yes, I'm hoping this means tomorrow.

    Water containing fluoride, Bp-A, pesticides, and a few other chemicals that can be looked up by anyone with a Web connection are very bad for you.
    Especially fluoride which is purposely place in drinking water and is an industrial waste product, and Bp-A which leches out of plastics and acts as the female hormone estrogen in the human body.
    The nazis actually was the first ones to place fluoride in drinking water to mentally subdue the workers at the camps.
    All this can be googled. Have fun with your research.

    Pesticides are spayed everywhere and that runs off into our ground water and lake water. Fish have been testing higher and higher every year for the chemicals...round up is the most common one found.

    @HeresSomeTruth Wow. Then you add GMO seeds and round up treated seeds.....no wonder we're all sick.....they're killing us off or controlling us through our food and drink.....

    @Knightkore
    Bp-A is also a serious problem.
    It leached out of everyday plastics and can be found in ALMOST all plastics. They even spay this as a lining on the inside of cans...beer cans, soda cans, food cans, etc. and bp-a leches from this into your drink and food. This chemical does the most damage to developing men children. Research it.

    Who cares? obama changed the nsa rules 2 years ago. So they all continue to lie to the american people. They do have a domestic spying program. Drink up everybody. Drink michelle & eva's "water." By the way i'd be a little more willing to listen if they had a dog in the fight. If they were spending their own $. Nope they continue to waste our hard earned $ on stupid, controlling, traffic stopping ventures!

    Who cares what she says, remember she hated our country until her lying husband became the liar and chief. Now she seems to think she is the smartest women ever in the white house, what a joke she is,everybody knows to drink water, even if she don't think we do. We are not as dumb as she thinks we are. At least we have always loved our country
