Ive always been rather thirsty myself. A couple years ago I worked night shift in a cabinet factory. I would go to work with 2-32 oz bottles of Gatorade (in the summer). Start the shift drinking one, then refill it 2-3 times before lunch. Open the other bottle right after lunch, and refill it 3-5 times (depending on overtime) before close of shift. Now I work in a kitchen in front of a grill for 5-9 hours a night. I cant keep track of how many times the servers refill my cup. Even days off though, i still burn through over a gallon of water a day.

As long as there is Mankind there will be debate and disagreement, often without known rational reasoning.

Drinking enough water and staying hydrated is one of the most important elements of a healthy diets.

It is also important to be conscious of what you are drinking your water out of. BPA, bisphenol-A, is a harmful chemical that has been leaching from plastic bottles and even some canteens. Stick to stainless steel canteens when drinking you 8 glasses a day!

I certainly support water drinking but I am a hot drinks person (being in Scotland!!) so I add a little hot water to mine. I do use jug filtered water though as there is a lot of chlorine in our supply I

I don't think so that only drinking water can bring those changes. Drinking water does help by making you feel fresh and healthy but just water cannot be your part of a diet. Water helps to make your skin glow but there is definitely going to be something extra that could have brought those changes in you.

I'm sorry but personally, I'm scared of tap water. Even though the concentrations of pollutants in the water are very well regulated, I feel that sometimes, the lobbyists from chemical factories have quite a lot of power to convince the regulators to raise the concentration limit of pollutants. Like for instance, the limit of the amount of arsenic in water allowed has been reduced 75% several years ago, so you could imagine before that, people were consuming 3 times the amount of arsenic as they did today. Of course, something similar could happen today with another chemical.

Simply put, I just don't trust the regulators. The only waters I drink are filtered water, or, if I have enough money to spend, FIJI or Dasani. I understand a lot of people may not be a big fan of Dasani, but I've been to their factories a couple of times and they're very ethical people.

They aren't regulated!!! By U.S. federal law only 91 polutants are required to be tested for in drinking water. That law is old and has never been updated. A recent government study (released on FOX and NBC news week before last), revealed more than 65,400 carcinogenic chemicals in our drinking water are unregulated, untested for, and have unknown effects on the human body in the quantities found.
