Thanks to information I found on myLot, I know if I get cancer, all I have to do to stop it is drink 30 glasses of water each day

Yes, no need for chemotherapy or drugs or anything else. Simply drink 30 glasses of water each day and "your situation won't worsen" according to information I learned from a member here. ________________________________________________________ Of course, this is pure bullshit. Not to mention it is dangerous to your health. Consuming this much water daily can flush electrolytes, salts and other nutrients from your body. But there are members here thanking this person for their 'valuable advice'. It is almost criminal what some people post here as 'truth'.

I drink 12-14 glasses of water per day or more because it's need of my area. But one can get rid of cancer is something new to me. I think they thought cancer and stones in urator are same thing which will flush away with extra water.

With the high heat you're having, you are wise to drink extra water to stay hydrated. Thirty is a little extreme though.

@morgoodie Yes we have already crossed 112 and heading to 115. So drinking as much as water as I can. I normally drink 10-12 glasses of water normal course as well.

Agreed. I don't know where some people get their 'mis' information from. Surely they meant 30 cups of coffee.

You must always follow your doctor's advice. There are so many misleading information on the internet. We can't blindly fool ourselves and believe in them. If you value your health then you must trust your doctor. He knows what's best for you. And taking 30 glasses of water can in no way cure cancer. And besides, 30 glasses per day is way too much. As you stated it will do more harm than good.

Out here we do need to drink a lot of water but it is always recommended that we add lemon to the water even if it's in small quantities.

Lemon juice will provide some of the lost electrolytes @hereandthere in the desert they tell us to keep hydrated because we can easily get dried out and they always tell us to replenish our electrolytes. Deserts are known for drying everything out.

Well, first of all, "myLot has no control over the quality or legality of any content posted on myLot, and therefore is not responsible for the actions of any myLot member." and also "myLot makes no warranties, express or implied, as to the content or to the accuracy and reliability of the content or any material or information that you transmit to other members." Therefore, if you took the advice of a member who has dubious or non-existent medical qualifications and knowledge, on your own head be it! I don't know what size your glass is but if it's a shot glass, then I guess that drinking 30 of those full of water a day would do you little harm. If it's the size of an English pint (568ml or 20% more than the piddling American pint), then I think you'd be struggling if not actually drowning.

I think six is reasonable. Eight is too much depending upon the person's size, weight, age, activity, kidney condition, climate, size of glass, etc. etc. LOL.

Ohh 30 glasses of water a day is too much, the health authorities commonly recommend 8 glasses of water each day equivalent to two liters.

I did see that but I only read the heading I didn't open it to read the discussion. I can't believe that people would take it for the truth....30 glasses of water you would never be running to the bathroom all the time...there wouldn't be time for anything else....

Regardless of whether it's good or bad how can one person drink that much water in one day? Sometimes I can barely drink one glass. But yeah, it's wrong to give false information to others, especially when it's health related.

I agree with you. Imagine drinking 30 glasses of water a day. It will flush out all those salts , electrolytes and nutrients from our bodies. We have to be so discerning when reading posts like that.
