Water is essential to all living things. Without water, living things would be unable to survive on Earth. It covers approximately 70 percent of the Earth and water serves several purposes. For one, water helps remove waste from our system. When we drink water, it helps pushes out waste through the process of urination.

Another purpose of water in our lives is that it helps with digesting our food through saliva and aids in bowel movements. It also helps in preventing a person from becoming dehydrated. When our body becomes too hot, it sweats to help cool the body down and bring it back to normal temperature.
