10 Water Facts You Didn’t Know

Water. You drink it. You use it. You ARE it. Water is the most important element for human survival. Let’s take a look at some water facts that you didn’t know:

  • There is the same amount of water on Earth as there was when the Earth was formed. The water from your faucet could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank.
  • The average total home water use for each person in the U.S. is about 50 gallons a day. (Say what?)
  • Our brains and a tree are extremely similar. 75% of the human brain is water and 75% of a living tree is water.
  • Nearly 97% of the world’s water is salty or otherwise undrinkable. Another 2% is locked in ice caps and glaciers. That leaves just 1% for all of humanity’s needs — all its agricultural, residential, manufacturing, community, and personal needs.
  • Water regulates the Earth’s temperature. It also regulates the temperature of the human body, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushions joints, protects organs and tissues, and removes wastes.
  • Approximately 400 billion gallons of water are used in the United States per day.
  • Children in the first 6 months of life consume seven times as much water per pound as the average American adult.
  • Hot water can freeze faster than cold water under some conditions (commonly known as the Mpemba effect).
  • In Washington state alone, glaciers provide 1.8 trillion liters (470 billion gallons) of water each summer.
  • WATER IS LIFE.
