Apparently Mrs. Obama is asking us to 'drink more water'. Makes me think she has something up her sleeve. Like, "what are they putting in the water"? lol

The First Lady wants you to drink more water.

On a call announcing Michelle Obama's newest healthy living initiative Wednesday, Let's Move Executive Director Sam Kass explained that the White House is working with cities, private companies and public taps to promote the message to "drink up."

Participating companies include Brita, Poland Spring, Evian, Dasani, Voss and others, which will carry a "Drink Up" logo on their bottles, and participating cities include Chicago, Los Angeles county, Houston and, appropriately, Watertown, Wis., where the First Lady is visiting Thursday to kick off the initiative.

"Every participating company is only focusing on drinking water," Kass said, and not on why its particular brand of water is "better" than another.

Drinking water is a good thing. Our bodies crave it and need it since our bodies are 66% water. 

I drink close to a gallon a day. :-)

I know a lot of people who drink a lot of soda. Some people, even in 2013, don't realize we need water.
