You Cannot Survive a Week without Water

You Cannot Survive a Week without Water

Did you know that the human body can survive no longer than a month without food?  Yeah, it’s true:  of course, every situation is different because there are many variables that contribute to survival without food. This includes things like weather, temperature, and fat stores (because the human body will begin to use the fat stores for calories).  

Trying to survive without water, though, is downright impossible.  The body is made up of approximately 60 percent water. That means that every single living cell within your body needs water in order to survive; and because of that we cannot survive more than a few days without it.Image result for You Cannot Survive a Week without Water

Take food, for example.  The human body can survive approximately one month without food.  Some experts say it could be as many as 45 days but after about 4 weeks the symptoms of extreme starvation begin to show—and these can sometimes result in irreparable, irreversible damage to the organs, muscles, and soft tissue.  Of course, several variables exist, most notably a person’s particular fat stores.

Indeed, proper Survival Savior hydration is essential for proper blood flow, joint lubrication, healthy digestion, and it even cushions the skull and the vertebrae. And without water nobody lives past five days.  

Ok, that is an average but, seriously, 5 days is about the human limit for survival without water.  Your particular survival rate will depend upon various variables, which includes: temperature, exposure to sunlight, your present physiology, and your activity, among others.  

Yes, the only thing that the human body needs more than water is oxygen.

With all this in mind, then, always make sure that you are properly hydrated. Bring a water bottle with you wherever you go, if you can.  The body begins to show symptoms of dehydration after only a ten percent drop in the body’s standing water supply; and this level of dehydration—only a 10 percent drop—is often regarded as a medical emergency that requires medical intervention because if dehydration continues it will soon lead to death.
