Do I Drink Enough Water? – Strength Magazine – May, 1924

A way back in those early youthful days when we were trying· to learn how to pronounce medulla oblongata and to figure out why the stern- um is in the chest in- stead of where it sounds like it ought to be, we were likewise confronted with the assertion that the human body is seventy percent water; and it would have been pretty hard for some of us to accept the statement if we
hadn’t seen it in a book- which in those days always meant that the thing stated was one of the eternal verities.
