Can You Say Desert?
Can You Say Desert?

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.

In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.

Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

So the million-dollar question is, “Why is it so challenging to drink enough water?”

  1. Jeff, I spent several years out there in the Mojave Desert in my tanks.

    It always amazed me how we could drink warm or even hot water (and enjoy it) while we were out there because it was blazing hot and we were always sweating our butts off.

    The body knows what’s good for it and will adapt as necessary.

    I didn’t know the statistics…interesting.

  2. How did you know the photo was from that region? Amazing.
    You’re tank wasn’t air-conditioned with flat screen plasma TV?
    People lovingly (at least I think) kid me about my “binky”, you know a baby’s pacifier. As an adult, our binky should be a water bottle.
    On a serious note, thank you for doing what you did in the Mohave.
    I always tell our son, I hope you never get tired of me telling you, “I love you”.
    And hopefully, you’ll never tire of, “Thank you for defending and protecting our Freedom”.

  3. I can still smell the Mohave. No A/C unless you opened the hatches and drove really fast. 70 tons moving at 45 mph…and firing a 120mm cannon on the move…wow!

    You know its funny. When we hear if from individuals in a one on one or small group it feels great to know someone truly appreciates it.

    When its done as a production for the audience we don’t like it because it feels disingenous or commercialized.

    Most people in this country really don’t grasp the reality of being at war. We aren’t being asked to do without like we were in WWII. We come and go as we please, we go to work, we go to school, we go to parties, dances, games, etc.

    Its a double edge sword…because we took the war to their front yard we don’t feel the threat here and it makes it difficult for us to comprehend the seriousness of the threat….but its better than fighting here in our own streets.

    Thank you for letting me vent a little and thank you for the kind words.

    I know it comes from the heart.

  4. Skip, thank you for sharing your perspective and for taking me up on the offer to be a Guest Blogger again.

    See ya Sunday, Sir!
