There are many health experts that have been adjudicating the need for drinking lot of water. It is a fact that most of a human body comprises of water therefore it becomes very necessary to keep it hydrated.
It is generally said that a person should drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Many even say that drinking water can even lead to weight loss. But an academician has challenged that as a myth saying that there is no need for drinking such an amount of water.
There are recommendations that an adequate daily fluid intake is about 2.2 liters for women and 3 liters for men. But the La Trobe University lecturer Spero Tsindos is of the view that it includes the liquids that person intakes while eating fruits, vegetables, coffee and tea.
He said, "I'm not saying you shouldn't drink water. I'm saying the need to drink two liters of water on a regular basis is a complete myth. We should be telling people that beverages like tea and coffee contribute to a person's fluid needs and, despite their caffeine content, do not lead to dehydration". Drinking such a large amount of water would only result in frequent visits to urinal.
