How much water should you drink per day?
68.273564981 liters.
Upto 60% of the human adult body is water.
But everyday, we lose some of this water through
sweat, urine, etc.

So, we need to replenish it.
Now, there is a popular 8 by 8 rule which

Everyday one should drink 8 glasses, each
containing 8 ounces of water.

Whereas, the Institute of Medicine suggests

The total water intake including all beverages
and food.

Should be 2.7 liters for women and 3.7 liters
for men.

However, no single formula fits everyone.
But our amazing body itself tells us when
we need water.

For example, dark-yellow urine is usually
a very good sign of dehydration.

Exercise, climate and conditions like diarrhea,
vomiting, etc.

Can lead to additional water loss.
So, our body makes us feel more thirsty.
This brings us to the conclusion that.
The water needs vary from person to person
and situation to situation.

Why is it hard to cure HIV / AIDS?
HIV or human immunodeficiency virus infects
the cells of immune system.

Causing them to produce more copies of the
virus and then eventually die.

When too many immune cells of our body die.
And our immune system is unable to fight off

Then we are said to have AIDS or Acquired
immunodeficiency syndrome.

Now, coming back to the question.
It is hard to cure HIV or AIDS.
Because HIV has the ability to mutate extremely

Hence, a drug which is somewhat effective
on a patient suffering from HIV or AIDS.

Might not work on another patient because
of the mutated HIV.

Now, there are certain antiretroviral drugs.
That prevent the cells from producing new
copies of HIV.

Thus controlling the HIV levels in our body.
But, it is hard to completely eradicate HIV.
Because the virus integrates its DNA into
our cell's DNA.

Hence, if we stop taking the drugs.
The DNA of the virus can again cause the cell
to produce copies of the virus.

And thus, we are unable to control the level
of HIV infected cells in our body.

Why do we love chocolates?
Chocolate is one of the most craved foods
in the world.

It just melts in our mouth and tastes so good

Many of us are ready to eat them at any given

Now, one of the reasons why we love chocolates
is because.

They contain a substance called anandamide.
In Sanskrit, Ananda means bliss.
Now, when we eat chocolates, anandamide present
in them.

Binds to special receptors in the brain giving
us bliss and joy.

Thus making us love chocolates.
Some chocolates also contain substances like

It is thought that this theobromine makes
our brain produce anandamide by itself.

Making sure that we feel blissful after eating

In addition to this.
Most types of chocolates contain sugar to
make them taste sweet.

Sugar activates the reward system in the brain.
Due to which neurotransmitters like dopamine
are released.

Dopamine gives us pleasure and makes us feel

As it makes us feel good.
We tend to eat more chocolates to get the
same feeling and thus.

We get addicted to chocolates.
Moreover, whether it is milk chocolate, white
chocolate or dark chocolate.

There are numerous varieties to choose from.
Also, there are dry fruits like.
Raisins, almonds, cashew nuts, etc. which
we generally like.

When these dry fruits are added to chocolates.
The desire to eat chocolates increases.
Also, according to a study.
It is observed that salt suppresses bitterness
and increases sweetness.

Hence, while preparing desserts like chocolate
cakes, cookies, brownies, etc.

A little salt is added to them, making the
desserts more inviting and tempting.

Thus, we easily get attracted towards them.
How do we know that our stomach is full?
Usually, our stomach and brain are constantly
communicating with each other.

With the help of hormones and nerves.
So, when our stomach is empty and the glucose
level in our blood is low.

The stomach produces a hormone called ghrelin.
Ghrelin generally travels to the brain through

And informs the brain that we need to eat
and thus, we feel hungry.

Now, when we eat food to satisfy our hunger.
The food enters our stomach, causing its walls
to stretch and expand.

When this happens, the nerves on the stomach
walls detect the expansion.

And tell the brain that our stomach is full
and our hunger is satisfied.

However, our stomach also expands when we
drink a lot of water.

But in this case, our hunger is not satisfied.
Do you know why?
This is because there is one more method by

Our brain can identify whether we are eating
food or just drinking water.

Can you guess what that method is?
I will tell you.
As mentioned earlier.
Our stomach and brain constantly communicate
with each other with the help of hormones.

One of these hormones is cholecystokinin.
When we begin to eat.
Nutrients in food stimulate the release of

Which eventually enters the bloodstream.
It is the presence of this cholecystokinin
in the blood.

Which informs the brain that we are eating
food and not just drinking water.

Now, as we eat more food, more cholecystokinin
is released.

Informing our brain that our stomach is getting
full with food.

And thus, the brain needs to suppress the
desire to eat.

Last but not least.
Did you know that boiled potatoes are the
most hunger satisfying foods?
