We all need to drink eight glasses of water each day

It seems that this myth won’t die. It started ages ago when a group of doctors tried to keep us from drinking sodas and other sugary drinks. “Proper hydration is necessary for just about anything body- and mind-related,” said DiBona. “However, 64 ounces per day isn’t necessarily the right number for you. It’s important to keep hydrated, but don’t stick to this arbitrary rule of how much to drink. Nutrition is an individual science, and there will be days when your body and mind require less than the average recommendation.”
