Something to Absorb
Contrary to popular belief, there is no expert recommendation that we need to drink eight 8-ounce cups of water per day. Consider it a "healthy habit" that just isn't true. This hinges on the fact that our fluid intake is complemented by the food we eat. Current recommendations for total fluid intake are from 91 to 125 fluid ounces. While eight glasses of water will certainly help keep you hydrated, there are other sources to tap, too.
