About 65% of the human body is water; 75% for babies, 60% for adults and 55% for the elderly. 1 to 1.5 L of liquid per day is necessary in a temperate climate to renew water supply in the body, 2 to 2.5 L per day is required in a warm climate.

The quality of water is also of fundamental importance to health and the proper functioning of the human body. The ability of water to transport substances allows our cells to use valuable nutrients (mineral salts, proteins,...) in biological processes. As a consequence, depending on its use, the efficiency of any treatment is more or less optimised.

Water cannot be replaced by any other liquid. Responding to thirst alone is not enough to meet all of the body's need for water. Certain illnesses can come about due to dehydration. The Foundation has translated and edited a book of Dr Batmanghelidj.
