Why Nations Fight For Water
Water is the sign of life. If there is no water, there is no life as it is a vital part of our body that's why nations will fight for water to survive. It is not only useful for human beings but also for all living organisms, including plants. Different parts of the human being constitute water about 65% to 90%. Human lung cells constitute 85% water and in the brain cells also about 85% water is present. Bone cells have a very low percentage of water but contain about 25% water. If there is no water, there may be a headache, mental retardation can be seen. The brain cannot perform proper work if there is dehydration as neurons which are a basic part of the nervous system needs water.
If the water level in the body is low, memory problems can also be seen. The impulse transmission can be affected. The eye also needs water as the vitreous body (Corpus vitreum) a part of the eye has about 95% of water. If there is dehydration there will be severe damage to the vision. We cannot see without water.
A low level of water in ear cells can lead to deafness. If there is dehydration, there may be disorders of Taste Buds and we cannot taste, and also our skin cells have water. Skin problems may be seen due to dehydration.
The water level in our body maintains our body temperature. In hot and severe conditions environmental temperature may rise to 50 degrees Celsius but our body cannot tolerate more than 41 degrees Celsius temperature. If environmental temperature fluctuation persists our body can expire but water in our body facilitates the body to face the harsh fluctuating environment.
Sweating is the process by which our body faces these harsh conditions. Excretory materials need water to get out free from our bodies. By urination, excretory materials from the Kidneys are removed from the body by water. If there is a low quantity of water means hydration in the body. Urine may become more concentrated and this can lead to kidney stones and infection in the urinary tract. There can be a burning sensation in the urinary tract and may lead to restlessness and kidney failure. In dehydration, the liver is also affected. The liver detoxifies drugs and Fat digestion occurs by the liver cells. Removal of drugs and the toxins from the body cannot properly do by the liver if there is dehydration. The toxins may accumulate in body parts which can lead to the bloodstream. This can be disastrous for our bodies.
Expulsion of feces from GIT is also important. GIT has an inner wet surface which facilitates our GIT to the movement of the material. During the food traveling from mouth to large intestine, many enzymes are secreted. These enzymes cannot work without water pressure.
If there is dehydration then our GIT is also affected. There is a problem of the difficulty of faces expulsion known as constipation. Water acts as a solvent in the human body. Our body requires some vitamins. These vitamins are of two types I. water-soluble and II. Fat-soluble. These fat-soluble vitamins are important for different functions as Vitamin A is important for eye vision and for the activity of the immune system. Vitamin D is for the proper development of the bones. Vitamin E is for enhancing reproductive activity and Vitamin K is for stop bleeding. We cannot see, hear, touch, taste, and even becomes sensitive without water.
So water is our life and without water, we cannot live.
