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.

That seems so hard to imagine, going without hydration for -10 days. Heck, what am I saying? Even 1 day would kill me. (lol) Thanks for the trivia! Hugs...RO

8 to 10 days? Must have some camel features or drink their own pee. Blah.

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