We all know that drinking water can have positive effects on the human body... but what about those who never drink water and drink mostly things like juice and soda pop daily? What are the short term and long term effects of such a lifestyle?

Well this explains a lot.. In 2010 I switched to a few cans of diet pop a day paired with half my body weight in water. I had smooth, clear skin that was pretty.. lost that routine, gave up water after a move 2yrs ago.. now skin is paying for it.
Definitely want to avoid dry skin and wrinkles... all the other things too, but not my poor skin!
I have really bad headaches and I don't drink water. This is one reason for my question.. I'm told because I keep a constant headache that this is probably to blame. Your words back that up. Thank you.
It is possible that something else is the issue, but there's an easy way to find out. And an overdose of water is much harder to achieve than an overdose of so many other things.
Here's to relieving headaches. *toasts*
That's the position I'm in. I'll be 30 this year and I've not held a strict water regime. In fact, I don't really get any right now and think I should because of related issues.
Safer even for well water?
Death from lack of water? I could understand death from dehydration from having no food or water... but death if you eat and drink other things? That's news for me. And yes, his hubs are great. I follow him :) Thanks!
Very interesting tip, I will keep that in mind. I used to live out there, but right now I'm in a very chilly place. Thanks for the insight!
Really? How does lack of water cause tooth decay? I had never heard of this one.
Water contains fluoride which strengthens the enamel on your teeth.
Oh wow, learn something new everyday! Thank you for giving me some knowledge I need. As someone who avoids water, no wonder my dentist tells me veneers would be helpful to maintain my teeth for weaker enamel! Kudos!
You are very welcome.
Of course well water and a lot of bottled water, distilled water, etc., doesn't contain fluoride. Treated city water will, for sure, though. Toothpaste works even better.
I wrote a hub on water and kidneys, and another one on the role water plays in the human body. Both answer questions posed here. This is the kidneys one: https://remedygrove.com/supplements/Kidney-Functio...
Probably why I developed diabetes back in the day. Whoops?
Very interesting to see the numbers of how just a little of the negative additives can do so much damage! Thanks!
Perhaps if I don't see any hubs created I might just put one together based on my findings and feedback here! Thank you!
Interesting insight... I'm not sure I entirely agree with it, but it is an interesting way of looking at things. Thanks for sharing!
Oh, my mother in law also drinks tea everyday and has lost weight and feels so much better so I agree on tea.
