Is it necessary to drink 8 glasses of

You may have often heard that it is necessary to drink 8 glasses of water daily for good health, but is this really true?

The answer to this was revealed in a new medical study, in which it was said that the advice of drinking 8 glasses of water daily is probably not right for most people.

This is the most comprehensive study to date on the daily need for water for the human body.

Research in Japan indicated that most people need 1.5 to 1.8 liters of water a day, which is less than the normally recommended amount of 2 liters.

The study by the National Institute of Biomedical Innovation, Health and Nutrition found that current recommendations on drinking water do not have scientific support.

Researchers said that most experts have no idea where the current recommendations came from.

He said that earlier estimates of water requirement ignored the fact that water is also present in food, which is important for achieving the total amount of water.

He said that if you eat only bread and eggs, then there is not much water in such a diet, but foods like meat, vegetables, fish, rice and pasta provide 50 percent of the water needed for the day.

The study involved 5,604 people from 23 countries, ranging from 8-day-olds to 96-year-olds, to assess their water drinking habits.

The study found that people’s habits regarding water use are different around the world, if some people drink 4 glasses a day, some also drink 25 glasses.

The study further showed that people who live in hot and humid weather areas or mountainous areas need more water.

Similarly, athletes, pregnant and lactating women should drink more water.

According to research, men drink more water (4.2 liters on average) in the third decade of age because they are more physically active and this amount decreases with age.

In comparison, women between the ages of 22 and 55 had the same amount (3.3 liters on average).

Athletes drink one liter more water than normal people.

Researchers said that the results prove that the recommendations to drink 8 glasses or 2 liters of water per day are not correct for most people, the policy of equal amount for everyone is not effective in this case.

He said that people should ignore the recommendations and drink water according to their physical needs.

He added that although drinking more water than the physical requirement is unlikely to harm health, clean drinking water is not free and we may have to spend more.

The findings were published in the journal Science.
