Are we drinking enough water?  Should you take that 8 cups challenge at work? What about the athletes, are we actually harming them by giving them Gatorade at baseball games where they barely sweat?  Pickle Juice, Powerade, Gatorade, Salt Tablets or Chicken Broth, what is unbiased research showing?
