How Long Can Someone Live Without Water?

Just Because You Can Doesn’t Mean You Should  . . .

It is a well-known fact that water is a necessity for human life, along with food. But how long can your body last without water? The answer isn’t a simple one; it depends on the environment and the health of the person.

According to Scientific American, someone who isliving in a comfortable environment can live up to a week without water. That is certainly not recommended though!
