Drink It, Water That Is

If you didn't know it already, let me tell you directly - I am pro water. So this little statistic caught my eye. According to the recently released US Census Statistical Abstract, the average American drank 23.2 gallons of bottled water in 2004, up from only 2.7 gallons in 1980.

I know this means we're just probably going more upscale with our water habits, buying bottles upon bottles of exquisitely pure and expensive water like Penta. Somehow or another I have decided to be optimistic abut this little factoid, and I think it means we are also drinking more water period. By drinking more water, we are becoming better at keeping ourselves hydrated. Maybe my glasses are tinted a little too pink, but that is my read on this fact extracted from the big book of statistics put out by our government.

If you are curious to know how much water you should be drinking daily, check out Fit's Calculator. It'll give you the information you are looking for.

Go ahead now. Drink up.
