    Dave:   Hey,  everyone.  It's  Dave  Asprey  with  Bulletproof  Radio.  Today's  cool   fact  of  the  day  is  that  shark  skin  is  actually  made  up  of  tiny  teeth-­‐like   scales  called  dermal  denticles.  That's  actually  a  tongue-­‐twister.    

      They  help  reduce  friction  and  they  make  it  easier  for  sharks  to  swim,   and  that's  why  when  you  rub  sharks  one  way  they're  really  rough  and   the  other  way  they're  really  smooth.  All  of  my  attempts  to  grow  shark   skin  on  my  arms,  because  that  would  be  cool,  have  failed  to-­‐date,  so  I   apologize,  I  don't  have  an  answer  for  how  you  could  have  dermal   denticles,  but  if  we  ever  get  one,  it's  going  to  be  cool.  

      Today's  episode  is  part  two  of  our  Q&A.  I'm  still  here  at  JJ  Virgin's   Mindshare  event  with  my  buddy,  Zak,  and  we  are  going  to  be  going   through  your  questions.  You  can  get  your  questions  submitted  and   answered  by  doing  it  on  Twitter,  our  Facebook  page,  or  by  going  to  the   bottom  of  the  blog  posts  that  contain  the  podcasts  on  and  just  entering  your  question  in  the  field  there.    

      I  love  it  when  you  ask  these  questions.  It  really  helps  me  know  what  you   care  about,  and  I'll  do  my  best  to  answer  all  of  them,  or  at  least  the  best   ones.    

    Zak:   All  right.  Picking  up  where  we  left  off,  we  got  a  lot  of  questions  about   water,  and  so  the  best  one  we  chose  is  from  Philip,  and  it's  kind  of  like   four  or  five  questions  in  one,  so  do  your  best.  Tap  water  versus  water   filters?  How  much  water  should  you  drink  per  day?  Do  you  really  need   to  drink  your  body  weight  in  ounces?  The  effects  of  fluoride,  pH,  and   alkalinity?  This  guy's  asking  specifically  about  the  Kangen  water   systems  as  well.    

    Dave:   Kegel  water?  All  right.  We'll  explain,  or  I  guess,  I'll  explain  all  that  stuff,   but  we're  going  to  have  to  maybe  go  through  those  one  at  a  time,   because  I  think  I'll  probably  forget  one  of  those  in  the  middle.  The  first   one  is,  how  much  water  should  you  drink?  All  right.  There's  this,  an   amazing  biohacker  signal  that  a  lot  of  people  miss,  and  it's  called  thirst,   and  it's  the  most  important  thing  you  can  listen  to.

      Now,  you  might  need  a  little  bit  more  water  than  your  thirst  would   dictate,  but  probably  not  that  much  more.  There  isn't  great  evidence   that  says  over-­‐drinking  water  is  good  for  you.  In  fact,  it  says  there's   good  evidence  that  says  it  washes  electrolytes  and  it's  not  that  good  for   you.    

      If  you  just  habitually  become  used  to  being  thirsty  and  you  don't  really   recognize  the  signal,  you  might  want  to  drink  more  water.  It's  also   interesting  that  the  more  toxins  that  you're  exposed  to,  the  more  water   you're  likely  to  want  to  drink.  One  of  the  biggest  signals  of  your   hydration  status  and  your  toxin  exposure  is  your  pee.  Since  we're   talking  about  water  in,  we've  got  to  talk  about  water  out.  

      When  you,  say,  drink  a  bad  cup  of  coffee  or  you  drink  beer,  we  know   these  are  things  that  make  you  pee.  The  difference  between  drinking  a   cup  of  lab-­‐tested  coffee,  which  doesn't  have  a  potent  toxin  that  irritates   the  bladder  and  kidneys,  this  would  be  ochratoxin  A,  one  of  the  more   common  micro-­‐toxins  in  coffee.  When  you  drink  beer,  which  also  has   OTA,  or  coffee  that  has  OTA,  the  body  goes,  "Oh  my  God.  Get  this  out  of   here,"  and  it  makes  you  have  to  pee  urgently,  and  then  you  go  pee  and   there's  not  that  much  pee.    

      If  you  had  to  go  to  the  bathroom  and  you  went  and  you  peed  for  two   minutes  and  you're  peeing  half  a  gallon,  you  actually  had  to  pee.  When   you  go  and  you  have  a  small  amount  of  urine  and  an  urgent  need  to  go,   either  you  an  irritation  of  the  urethra,  which  can  be  like  an  infection  or   something  else,  or  likely,  you  have  something  that  your  body  is  trying  to   dilute  and  get  rid  of.    

      To  prevent  cancer  and  damage  to  the  kidneys  and  to  the  bladder,  your   body  will  gladly  pull  water  out  of  plasma  and  put  it  in  to  dilute  these   nasty  chemicals.  You  know,  the  solution  to  pollution  is  dilution?  That   applies  in  your  body  as  well.  This  means  that  if  you  have  just  a  little  bit   of  pee  and  it's  a  very  light  color,  you're  dealing  with  toxins  and  you  need   to  drink  more  water  anyway.  If  you're  dealing  with  a  normal  volume  of   pee  and  it's  a  normal  level  of  yellow  that's  not  super-­‐concentrated  that's   not  super  dilute,  you're  doing  it  right.

      If  your  pee  is  super  light-­‐colored  and  you  have  a  lot  of  it,  you're  actually   drinking  too  much  water.  The  idea  of  drinking  so  much  water  that  your   pee  is  always  light  doesn't  make  a  lot  of  sense,  and  if  you're  going  to  do   that,  at  least  add  a  little  bit  of  salt  to  the  water,  because  you're  probably
