A Toast: ?To your Health?

Considering the effect too much alcohol has on your system and overall health, the practice of toasting someone?s health with a glass of beer or liquor is a bit contradictory.

The health benefits of drinking water have been known for years, but too many of us ignore the facts.

Here are some reasons why drinking a glass – or four or five glasses – of water is good for you.

Water is necessary to keep?our?bodily functions stable. Severe dehydration can?prevent the proper flow of?blood throughout the body. As a result, your brain won?t?function adequately, which?can lead to weakness and fatigue.


  • Not drinking enough water can affect your kidneys.? Not having?enough water in your system can?make you more to susceptible to numerous?conditions, including kidney infections and kidney stones.
