How Much Water Should One Drink in summer Months?
 
New Delhi May 22, 2016: Most agree that one should drink an average of eight cups (consisting of eight fluid ounces) of water per day. However, the true amount of water intake depends upon several factors, including gender, age, level of activity, and environment.

The adequate water intake is 30 ml per kg body weight in a person with normally functioning kidneys said Padma Shri Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal – President Heart Care Foundation of India & Honorary Secretary General IMA.
