I got them all right because I do not believe in silly urban myths ! as for the 8 glasses of water a day that would be the biggest one. I am 76 yo and am lucky if I drink 2 glasses a day. My mum is 99 and only drinks about 2 glasses a day … and my grandmother who passed at 97 only drank about 2 glasses a day. I was always told : drink when you are thirsty, after exercise or on a very hot day !
