NPR posted a story not too long ago about the “myths” behind drinking water. Much of us have been told since a young age about the benefits of drinking at least eight glasses per day, or the benefits of water for our kidneys, and so on. Well, unfortunately there isn’t much science to back up these claims. Below is a list of some of the myths behind drinking water on a daily basis.




Myth No. 1: Drink Eight Glasses Each Day

Myth No. 2: Drinking Lots of Water Helps Clear Out Toxins

Myth No. 3: Lots of Water Equals Healthier Skin

Myth No. 4: Drinking Extra Water Leads to Weight Loss

Myth No. 5: It’s Easy to Get Dehydrated During a Workout
