More About Fatigue. 75 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated. In 37 percent of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3 percent. One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100 percent of dieters in a University of Washington study. Lack of water is the #1 trigger for daytime fatigue. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day significantly eases back and joint pain for up to 80 percent of sufferers. A mere 2 percent drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45 percent, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79 percent, and be 50 percent less likely to develop bladder cancer.
Why Risk Alcohol?There is nothing in wine that isn't in grapes, except for the alcohol. You can add a variety of red and purple table grapes to your diet instead of the wine. In addition, berries, plums, currants, and other deep red-blue fruits are also excellent sources of the anthocyanin phenols found in wine. And quercetin, another phytonutrient in wine, is actually more plentiful in apples with skin. Onions, whole buckwheat, oranges, and grapefruits provide some too.
A healthy dose of colorful fruits and vegetables provides an abundance of other health-protective nutrients not found in wine.--Environmental Nutrition.
