Fact of the Day: Food and Water

While humans have been known to survive up to 3 weeks without food, we need water far more often. The average person would perish after about 3 days with no water. Though there have been stories of individuals making it 8-10 days without hydration.

  6. I imagine circumstances have a lot to do with how long one can go without water.
