Eight Glasses of Water – a Myth or Reality?

A recent scientific study suggests that eight glasses of water a day might be too much for the human body

Everyone has received advice regarding water drinking habits and people always suggest that drink two liters of water a day.

Whether they are scientists, doctors, dermatologists, actors, and models, everyone has advised their patients and fans to drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

The popular belief suggested that drinking eight glasses of water will keep the kidneys healthy, make the skin glow and solve all bodily function problems.

However, a new study by scientists at the University of Aberdeen proposes that eight glasses of water is too much for the body. The human body does not require this much water.

Professor John Speakman from the University of Aberdeen said, “the original estimate of two litres a day comes from a slight miscalculation. The water that we would need to drink is the difference between the total water that we need to ingest and the amount that we get from our food.”

The medical experts mention that drinking more water is an adage, and it will not harm human body if in excess.
