How much water do we need?
Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink
Water, water, everywhere, And all the boards did
shrink; Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink . . . ”
These verses are those of a famous tale written by the 19th Century English Poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge the “Rime of the Ancient Mariner”.
A masterpiece of the English Literature. This sad tale gave rise to the bad presage, the Mariner’s punishment for having killed an albatross. The killing as the cause of them being marooned in the open sea without a puff of wind to sail, but most of all deprived of the essential to live, the fresh water, as they are surrounded by undrinkable salt water.
Biologists tell us out body is made of water. More than 60% of our body content is water, that exists in every cell or tissue of our body.
