Good water and good food are an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. Studies show that the human body can survive 3-4 weeks without food and up to 8 with water alone. It is said that we can go 3-4 days without water, though in extreme heat the time is much shorter. As the body is comprised of 60% water and every living cell in us needs it, it is little wonder that is absolutely vital to our survival. Without adequate food our bodies start to shut down and early signs of malnutrition or starvation include weakness, confusion, chronic diarrhea, irritability, bad decision making and immune deficiency. From there it gets progressively worse. Dehydration show signs much sooner and include dry mouth, lack of saliva, dry sunken eyes and rapid heartbeat. Be sure to include lots of clean water and healthy delicious food, such as the Fried Ham and Cheese Melts, as part of your healthy lifestyle.
