The Joe I'm referring to is Joe Kita and an article in "Health" a Reader's Digest book.
According to an article titled "Keep Water in the tank" being underhydrated can make you act and feel older. For a sharp mind, smooth skin, better health, and fluid movement, you need water. But , according to Joe, forget about the 8 X 8 rule (eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily). Healthy eaters, get all the water they need from the foods they eat and what they drink (that includes tea and coffee, but not alcoholic beverages) If you're thirsty though you should drink up. If you've worked up a sweat exercising, are in a hot climate, or, taking medications, you may need to drink more than usual.
My feeling is that water is probably better for us and it seems it wouldn't work our kidney as hard as tea, coffee or colas.
Got an opinion?
