Did you know that water is considered the “elixir of life”? It is considered this because living creatures/humans need water to survive. Adults need about 2 liters of water a day, but athletes need more than that. A human’s body is 70% water. Fresh water has about the same mineral content as ocean water. Fluoride is added to tap water to protect teeth. Water is important to humans.

“The ocean pours through a jar, And you might say it swims inside the fish.” This is just one of the many quotes about water. Water is being used in everyones daily ways of life. The sad part is that many places in the world, such as Africa, have a scarce amount of water. The average human adult should drink about 2 liters of water per day. An average African adult drinks about .25 liters of water. As you can see water is not abundant in many areas.
