10 Reasons Water Is More Amazing Than You Think

Water is essential to life. It is one of the most common substances on Earth yet in some places it is more valuable than gold and can be a catalyst for deadly conflict. And still we take it for granted, waste it and pollute it. Water is even more amazing than you think:

  1. The 8,946,128,100,000,000,000 (quintillion) cubic feet of water on Earth translates to around 800 trillion Olympic-sized pools.
  2. If you spread all that water uniformly across Earth’s surface, it would be over 12,000 feet deep!
  3. Nearly all of it, 97%, is salty with another 2% frozen as polar ice. This means that just 1% is available for consumption and agricultural use.
  4. Water molecules have a propensity to “stick” together and exhibits extraordinary surface tension. Our bodies use this in our blood circulation to help overcome gravity.
  5. The adhesiveness of water molecules is also why water is a liquid rather than a gas at normal temperatures. Similar molecules like ammonia (NH3) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) are gases at 72 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. After hydrogen (H2), water is the single most common molecule in the universe.
  7. 75% of our brains and 75% of the volume of trees are comprised of water.
  8. Each individual in the U.S. uses an average of 50 gallons of household water every day.
  9. Humans can survive around a month without food, but without water most would die within in a week.
  10. The Clear Genius® reusable water pitcher filter system reduces contaminants such as chlorine and heavy metals like mercury and cadmium.
