However, there is a need to increase that amount for
exercise or other physical exertion, more if the weather is hot
and/or dry, more if overweight and definitely more if someone is

a replenishing source of fresh un-polluted moisture.
Next is fiber, often referred to as roughage or bulk.
An increased intake of fiber can significantly reduce the impact

the average adult.
