A 36-year-old male asked:
Is water good for kidneys & bladder as a means to filter toxics? is it true it's vital to drink lots of water in the morning to flush out the filth?

In short, Yes: About one ounce of water per kilogram of body weight (if you weigh 150 pounds, 75 ounces of water -- 9 cups) is considered appropriate. There is "water" in many things however, so it doesn't have to be just free water. It is good for kidneys, bladder, heart, colon and your skin. You should drink throughout the day, not just morning!
