Water the Essence of Life
Water is the probably the 2nd most important necessity for life (the first being oxygen). We can’t survive without water for 3 days! Why is this? Well water is the ultimate solvent. It breaks down nutrients, lubricates our tissues, and distributes water soluble vitamins such as vitamins B and C.
If you’re an avid soda drinker like I used to be you may want to reconsider. You may not want to end up with the 6 cavities I did. Not only are your teeth and bones cursing you for drinking that soda, your body will crashing after the caffeine and sugar rush wears off. I used to find myself drinking soda for the sole purpose of just having something to drink. I would then end up running to the bathroom every 10 minutes (a side effect of caffeine) and then feeling miserable within an hour.
I also used to hate the taste or lack of taste of water. As I made my transition, however, I noticed the taste and feel of water was growing on me. It all comes down to what you make a habit. If you make drinking water a habit instead of drinking soda, you will be saving yourself some complications that would come later down the road.
