Water is life. You wouldn't think we could make an entire episode about water, but Deidre is back to show us how it's done!
Water is a transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance, which is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms. It is vital for all known forms of life, even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients.
We are not talking about the hydrologic cycle, the boiling point, or the fact that water turns to ice by freezing backwards in relation to how everything else freeezes.
8 glasses a day? The Canadian Food Guide says so, but Deidre thinks we should double that amount, depending on how age and activity level. Water activates our cells, keeps us healthy. We are all dehydrated. Lack of water is responsible for our migraine headaches, high blood pressure and cancers. We're also eating too much processed sugar - but there are alternatives.
Coffee! Drink 2 glasses of water for each cup of coffee. Double that for sugary soda pop type drinks. There's a fun bit of humour about triple fisting.
Plastics are everywhere. In the oceans. In our bodies.
Farting. The best way to tell if kids are dehydrated is through fart odours. The worse the smell, the more water is needed.
Our bodies know what they need to stay healthy. Weeds are only weeds because we are not using them properly. Make yourself some dandelion tea!
