4. g) is the correct answer Water is involved in every function in the human body. It is critical for healthy digestion and regular elimination, for the maintenance of cellular structure, for DNA integrity, and for the efficient removal of toxins and wastes.
5. f) is the correct answer Water should be the first thing you consume in the morning after many hours of sleep. It is also necessary to prime the digestive organs; it should be taken at least 15 minutes before every meal. Thirst is one of the later signs of dehydration.

7. c) is the correct answer Water does have structure—based on the formation of molecular tetrahedrons that join to create a repeating hexagonal symmetry. Water’s basic molecular structure incorporates both tetrahedral and hexagonal geometry.
