    You should be grateful that here you have easy access to drinking water. in many part of the wider world there are millions and millions of people who have no access to clean drinking water.

    They don't even define how much water a "glass" is supposed to hold, if it's a small amount like 100ml Then I think 8 glasses is about right

    well when you drink a lot, the osmoreceptors in your hypothalamus detect hydration and the pituitary gland release ADH. ADH targets the walls of the collecting duct in the nephron of your kidney, and less aquaporins open. this means that less water is maintained, increasing urine output.

    If you're drinking 800mls a day, you're dehydrated

    Drink to be hydrated, you should go to the toilet every 2-3 hours and your urine should be pale yellow - clear in colour

    The 8 glasses of water a day is a marketing campaign for bottled water. Drink when you are thirsty.
