  1. There is the same amount of water on Earth as there was when the Earth was formed. The water from your faucet could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank.
  2. Water is composed of two elements, Hydrogen and Oxygen. 2 Hydrogen + 1 Oxygen = H2O.
  3. Nearly 97% of the world’s water is salty or otherwise undrinkable. Another 2% is locked in ice caps and glaciers. That leaves just 1% for all of humanity’s needs
  4. 75% of the human brain is water and 75% of a living tree is water.
  5. A person can live about a month without food, but only about a week without water.
  6. Water expands by 9% when it freezes. Frozen water (ice) is lighter than water, which is why ice floats in water.
  7. Water regulates the Earth’s temperature. It also regulates the temperature of the human body, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushions joints, protects organs and tissues, and removes wastes.
  8. Water intoxication is most likely to occur during periods of intense athletic performance.
  9. Water dissolves more substances than any other liquid. Wherever it travels, water carries chemicals, minerals, and nutrients with it.
