Why is water so important? It is hard to imagine life without water, no living thing could exist. Our bodies lose nearly 22 liters of water daily. This water is used to clean the cell in our bodies; to transport dissolving oxygen and food around our body, to rise the waste product out of our bodies in the form of urine and sweat, and to keep our bodies functioning healthily. It is important that we replace the water our bodies lose during the day or we will suffer from dehydration and get sick. In some places you will importance of water in their daily life.
-More than thirds of your body consist of water. -Animals and plants are also need water to service, if it is really hot days, dogs will lie in the shade and pant .They are furry animals and they can’t sweat in the same way humans do. The heat actually evaporates off their tongues while they pant and this help to lower their bodies.
