When we feel thirsty and have nothing to drink, we may suffer so much that we can think of nothing else. All of us have the experience of being thirsty at times — but can'you imagine how it would feel to-be thirsty for days and days? If a human being has absolutely nothing to drink for three weeks, he will die. Our body simply needs to replenish its liquid supply — and yet between 50 and 60 per cent of our weight is water! As a matter of fact, in the course of a day the average adult loses about two- thlrds of a quart of water through perspiration, and excretes about a quart of water to get rid of waste products. On the other hand, whether we drink or not, we also take in wa< ter. When the body digests food it obtains almost a third of a quart of liquid from this food per day. But tills process of losing water and gaining it isn't enough to keep the balance of water our body needs. Thirst is the signal our body gives us that it needs more water. Oryness In the mouth or throat is not what causes thirst, as many people believe. That dryness may be caused by many things such as nervousness, exercise, or just a lowing up of the flow of saliva, It is possible to make the saliva flow again (for example, with a little lemon juice), but this will not take care of our thirst. In (act, your saliva can bo flow ing fi-<jejy, your stomach and blood stream and bladder may be full of water — and you can still be thirsty! For example, people who drink whiskey at a bar may have tsken s«yeraJ drjWts still /eel IhJrsty - U they to have munctjed on sajty nuts or pretzels between drinks The reason for this is Dial thirs is caused by a change in the sal content of our blood. There is certain normal amount of salt am water in our blood. When thi changes -by having more salt ii relation to water in our blood thirst results. In our brain there is a "thirs center." It responds to the amoun of salt in< our blood. When then is a change, it sends message; to the back of the throat. From there messages go back to the brain, and it is this combination of feelings that makes us sa> we're thirsty. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box First' Grader: Daddy, I learn ed to write in school today.
