The "WHY " ® WATER AND HEART DISEASE STUDYAdventist Health Study, 6 years, 8280 men and 12017 women: Women / Men who had a high daily intake of water (5+ glasses) had 41% / 51% fewer heart attacks as those who had low intakes (<2 glasses). With those who drank other fluids (coffee, soda pop, etc.), they found no protective effects of higher fluid intake. In fact, those who had the highest fluid intake from other beverages (in place of water) had higher mortality rates, especially in women. - Source: American Journal of Epidemiology 155 (9):827-33, Jan. 2002 © DW GROUP, LLC 2008
  11. 11. Dynamic Wellness Research News ® Happy Juice?Bad mood? A recent study in the Journal of Nutrition suggests thatmild dehydration is enough to dampen your spirits.Researchers tested 25 women’s moods throughout differentperiods of hydration and exercise. The findings? Even the slightestamount of dehydration—whether they were working out orresting—resulted in a bad mood. The less hydrated the womenwere, the less happy they were.Mild dehydration affects you too (though it might affect womenmore), says the study’s co-author Harris Lieberman, Ph.D., of theUS Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine. So howdoes it work? Researchers aren’t entirely sure. They speculatethat dehydration can be detected by our neurons andcommunicated to the region of our brain that regulates mood assoon as our thirst symptoms kick in resulting in crankiness. © DW GROUP, LLC 2008
