Flushing toxins out of the system" is usually a catchphrase used by unscrupulous marketers of various drinks and supplements who try to capitalize on peoples' fears. In some cases—people suffering from kidney problems or recurrent urinary tract infections, for example— advice to drink more water is legitimate. And intense physical activity obviously requires the replacement of lost water. According to Dr. John Leiper, a researcher at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, bedroom gymnastics may fall into this last category.
But we don't have to neurotically attach our lips to a bottle all day to meet the mythical eight-glass agenda. A water intake equivalent to five glasses per day, though, does have some scientific justification. A study at Loma Linda University in California followed the health status of some 8,000 women and 12,000 men who had completed dietary surveys in 1976. Statistically, the 246 who eventually died from heart disease — 53 — THE FLY IN THE O I N T M E N T were more likely to have consumed less than five 8-ounce glasses of water per day.

Some people routinely peel fruit because they fear the wax seals in pesticide and fungicide residues; others advise against peeling because they fear the loss of nutrients contained in the peel. Actually, peeling fruit in order to get rid of microbes is probably a more realistic scenario than peeling it to eliminate pesticide residues.
