Most people know that dehydration is not a desirable state for a human, but does anyone actually know why?

We can think of water in a biological system as a “battery,” able to deliver energy to cells and proteins to drive cellular operations, without having to rely on ATP as an energy substrate.  This is the reason we can go 20-30 days without food, but only 3 days without water.  ATP merely acts to unfold protein structures to maximise their binding sites to the water, which really drives the cell’s functions in a constant manner.

In this video Gerald Pollack explains this biological “exclusion zone” water, and how it powers life.
