    Your body is an amazing machine, but deprived of water, it can shut down  The Lost Ways Review and cause death from dehydration in as little as 2 days. The human body, by weight, is composed of 2/3 water. Necessary for such bodily functions as circulation, respiration, and converting food to energy, potable (clean) water is the most important survival tool in emergency situations and is often the most difficult to come by if not prepared.

    The process of dehydration occurs when the intake of water is less than that which is being lost, whether though sweat, urine, or respiration. This means that even if you are not exerting energy to move, you are still losing water that must be replaced. As dehydration takes hold of the body, the blood begins to thicken, which causes the heart to have to work harder. As the heart works harder to cope with the decrease in blood volume, the body begins to lose overall efficiency and function, and you may experience dizziness, light headed sensations, and confusion. Maintaining maximum mental focus and physical ability are crucial for survival in an emergency situation.
