Earth's 326 million cubic miles of water cover most of the planet's surface. Water makes up 70% of our body mass (80% in the case of a newborn infant); the average human uses about 50 gallons of it every day.
Water has inspired great works of art and sculpted the surface of our planet. It has killed millions in floods and tidal waves, yet without a ready supply we would be dead in less than a week.
It is the only substance that is found naturally on earth in three states: liquid, gas and solid. It dissolves more things than any other known liquid and uniquely it is actually lighter as a solid than as a liquid.
Water is a wonderful, awful thing without which life itself couldn't have evolved. The water molecule itself is probably the most extensively studied compund in history, we know more about it than almost any other chemical.
Water is all these things and much more, but one thing it is not, is a medicine, nor is it magic - yet that is what every homeopath in existence claims.
