If you’re wondering why water is having such odd side effects on your body…
Scientifically speaking, water is weird stuff!
#1 – It is the only natural substance found in all three physical states at the temperatures that naturally occur on Earth. Gas (water vapor), liquid, solid (ice)
#2 – If you drop an ice cube into a glass of water, it floats. This happens because water expands as it freezes, which makes the solid form less dense than the liquid. But most other liquids do just the opposite; they shrink and become more dense as they freeze, so the solid form sinks. If water behaved that way, ice in lakes would freeze from the bottom up (no ice skating!)
#3 Another surprising characteristic of water is that it boils at a very high temperature—100 degrees Celsius at sea level—compared to similarly sized molecules. If water behaved like other liquids, it would exist as a gas at the temperatures and pressures found on Earth, and life as we know it couldn’t survive.
#4 Another unique property of water is its ability to dissolve a large variety of chemical substances. It dissolves salts and other ionic compounds, as well as polar covalent compounds such as alcohols and organic acids.
Still think water is a waste?! BE WELL
