Abstract

While the relation between hydration status and physical activity (military operations, sports performance) has been an area of extensive research, more recently, researchers have begun examining the relation between hydration status and health, acute and chronic diseases, and cognitive performance. On November 29 and 30, 2006, the International Life Sciences Institute North America Technical Committee on Hydration organized a conference on hydration and health promotion. This article is an overview of that conference.
