Our bodies are mostly water, almost all function with water so no water the end….
I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician: he is also a child placed before natural phenomena which impress him like a fairy tale.

As merlav said above our bodies are mostly water (about 70%). Our organs and most if not all metabolic processes require water to work properly/survive. Without water you get deteriorated, dizzy, then your organs stop working properly and if you do not supply your body with water then you finally die.
