Eating Water

How many litres of water do you think you drink per day. Honestly...stop and take a guess, then check out the mind blowing statistic below.

Face: While the average human being requires between four and five litres of drinking water a day to survive, it takes 2,000 3,000 litres of water a day to produce the calories that same human being needs to eat every day. Producing the meat and other proteins prevalent in the modern diet requires even more water. We may drink only a few litres of water a day, but we "eat"as much as 15,000 litres of water a day.
