Lots of things -: Out bodies need at least 2 quarts of water each day to do all the biochemical processes, then another quart or more to balance out the soda pop and sugary food we eat each day. If we don't drink enough water, the muscles of our body cramp because they need a good flush - so give it to 'em! drink 2qts water daily then duplicate any non-juice beverage ounce per ounce with water.
