Issue : Drinking Water.

Aim : To study benefits of drinking water for a healthy body.

Objective :
Problem Statement :
1. People drink less of water.
2. People did not know about the benefits of drinking water.
3. Many people prefer to drink sugary water compared drinking water.

Methods :
1. Using a public service announcement to remind the public.
2. We will use as a material for cutting paper for stop motion PSA.

Importance of drinking water.
Water is probably the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off.
Water suppresses the appetite and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Studies show that a
decrease in water intake may cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in water can
actually reduce the fat deposits in the body. The kidneys do not function properly without
enough water and when this occurs, some of their function is passed on to the liver. The liver
works to metabolize stored fat into usable energy for the body, so if the liver has to help the
kidneys, it cannot function effectively and consequently metabolizes less fat. Thus, fat remains
stored in the body and weight loss will stop. People who are prone to water retention often think
that reducing their water intake will help to remedy this problem. Actually, the opposite occurs.
The body perceives a lack of water as a threat to its survival so its attempts to hold on to every
drop. Water is then stored in spaces outside the bodys cells, causing swollen feet, hands, and
legs. The best way to overcome excess water retention is to give the body what it needs - plenty
of water.
According by Donald S. Robertson, and Carol Robertson the body will not function
properly without enough water and cannot metabolize stored fat efficiently. Retained water
shows up as excess weight. To get rid of excess water you must drink more water. Drinking
water is essential to weight loss. Water should preferably be cold - it is absorbed more quickly
into the system than warm water. Some evidence suggests that drinking cold water can actually
burn calories. To utilize water most efficiently during weight loss, follow this schedule:
Morning: 1 quart consumed over a 30 minute period.
Noon: 1 quart consumed over a 30 minute period.
Evening: 1 quart consumed between 5-8 p.m.

How Much Water Is Enough?
At least 64 ounces a day, preferably 72 ounces, and if you are overweight you need to
add one glass (8 ounces), for every 25 pounds you need to lose. An easy rule of thumb is to
divide your weight in half to determine how many ounces of water you need to drink daily.
So to sum up, getting enough water is critical because....
The body will not metabolize stored fat without it
Retained water shows up as excess weight
When you drink enough water, more fat is used as fuel because it frees up the liver to
metabolize stored fat
There is a loss of hunger almost overnight

The health benefits of drinking plain water.
People are always being told to drink more water but a lot of us struggle to get through a
set amount every day. Almost two thirds of our body is made up of water, so it is not that when
we don't drink enough are health and wellbeing start to suffer. Government guidelines
recommend that we should try and drink at least eight glasses a day and some nutritionists
claim that a staggering 80% of us are walking around dehydrated. This lack of fluid could affect
health, weight and even the job. The benefits of drinking plain water are:

Firstly, it helps with weight loss for the body. Great news for anyone trying to lose a few
pounds. The water naturally reduces your appetite. A lot of people confuse feeling thirsty with
feeling hungry they eat when become harder to break down and anyone actually trying to diet
will find it a lot harder if they don't drink very much. Their body wants them to drink something.
When the body was dehydrated, they just drink the plain water make the weight loss.

Secondly, benefits of drinking plain water is supports your heart. The hardest working
muscle of all needs a lot of water to keep it going at full speed. When the body get dehydrated
the blood gets thicker so, the heart has to work even harder, when the heart is weak, this can
lead to more serious heart problems later in life. A study by Eden found that drinking more than
five glasses of water a day could cut to chances of having a heart attack by 41%, compared with
people who drank less than two glasses a day.

Thirdly, the benefits of drinking water is boosts energy. In the same way that not drinking
enough water makes the brain slow down it has the same effect on the body. For example, the
muscles are around 75% water, the bones are about 22% and the blood is around 83%. If body
was dehydrated, these body parts don't work as well as they should meaning lack energy and
feel tired or lazy.

The benefits of drinking plain water is stops headaches and dizziness. Don't reach for
the pills straight away your headache could be a symptom of being dehydrated. To drinking
plain water could make it go away. Even tension headaches and dizziness, which can be
brought on by fatigue can be cured or eased by drinking water. The ways is, drinking plain water
can solve the problem.

The another that is, It clears the skin. Most people know that drinking more water can be
good for clear skin and it can also help the symptoms of acne. When the people got dry skin,
drinking plain water will give it more moisture but that's not all. Water flushes toxins out of the
body and anything else that shouldn't be there so it clears the skin of any dirt and bacteria.


According to WHOs Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office, drinking water regardless
of its source, may be subjected to one or more of a variety of treatment processes aimed at
improving its safety and aesthetic quality. These processes are selected in each case according
to the source water and the constituents and contaminants that require removal. Surface fresh
waters will often undergo coagulation, sedimentation, rapid sand filtration and disinfection.
Ground waters, which are often naturally filtered, usually undergo less treatment that could be
limited to disinfection alone. Other treatment processes may include pH adjustment, softening,
corrosion control chemicals addition, alkalinity adjustment, carbon filtration, membrane filtration,
slow sand filtration and supplemental fluoridation. The disinfectants applied could include
chlorine, chlorine dioxide, ozone, or chloramines. Some substances will be added by the
chemicals used for treatment, direct, and indirect additives.

For waters with high salinity (e.g. from perhaps 1000 ppm up to about 40,000 ppm) such
as brackish waters or sea water, treatment processes must remove most of the dissolved salts
order to make the water potable. The major methods include reverse osmosis, other membrane
treatments or several distillation condensation processes. These processes require extensive
pretreatment and water conditioning and subsequent re-mineralization, so that the finished
water that is now significantly different from the source water will not be overly aggressive to the
piped distribution systems that it will pass through on the way to consumers.

In the course of treatment of fresh water, contaminants and some potentially beneficial
nutrients will be removed and some might be added. Other waters, such as those treated by
softening or membrane filtration may also undergo significant changes in their mineral content
due to the treatment processes.

Re-mineralization and increasing alkalinity for the purpose of stabilizing and reducing of
water from which dissolved solids have been substantially reduced are often accomplished by
use of lime or limestone. Sodium hydroxide, sodium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate,
phosphates, and silicates are also sometimes used alone or in combination. The mineral
composition of limestone is highly variable depending upon the quarry location and it is usually
predominantly calcium carbonate, but it sometimes also contains significant amounts of
magnesium carbonate along with numerous other minerals. Quality specifications exist in many
countries for chemicals and materials including lime used in the treatment of drinking water.
These specifications are intended to assure that drinking water treatment grade chemicals will
be used and that their addition will not concurrently contribute significant levels of potentially
harmful contaminants to the finished drinking water under foreseeable use conditions.
