Washington reports the head of the CIA defended the agency against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s charge that she was mislead in 2002 about the use of waterboarding, but he said it ultimately is up to Congress to decide where the truth lies.

“Let me be clear.  It is not our policy or practice to mislead Congress,” Leon Ponetta said.  Well, let me be clear about this:  Water is a very, very important nutrient for us, here.  Water regulates body processes. It really carries nutrients and other body chemicals to your cells and also carries waste products away.  Many times, over the years I have heard, “ I drink lots of water to lose weight.”  It’s not the water that makes us lose weight.  The water carries the waste products or fat breakdown away, but it doesn’t make us lose the weight.  Water helps to control and regulate body temperature.  And it makes up about 78% of your body weight.

Like oxygen, we just can’t live without water.  And, it is such a refreshing fluid.  Drink water frequently—during your day—try not to wait until you are “thirsty” because its too late then. For those that may have difficulty drinking plain water, try adding a splash of lime, lemon, or orange juice to your water.  No need to spend all that extra money on excessive products that are now on the market; try it yourself.  So, don’t mislead yourself or anyone else, water is a vital nutrient for health, not for waterboarding, and essential for life.
