e’ve all been told for as long as we can remember that the key to good health is to drink plenty of water — eight glasses a day, precisely. But this rule isn’t based on hard evidence; just the fact that it’s easy to remember. However, the scary thing is, that with the intense heat and climate, you’re losing water even faster than you can drink it.
