Water is a very important part in our life and in our body. For some organisms it can range up to 90% of water but for the adult human body it is 60% water

The human body is 61.8 percent water by weight. Protein accounts for 16.6 percent; fat, 14.9 percent; and nitrogen, 3.3 percent of human body weight. Other elements constitute smaller percentages of body weight.
