    There might be something to it, though. Lots of water dilutes the stomach acid, making it more difficult and take longer to digest food, which means the acid is in your stomach longer, which leads to gastric reflux, for which are prescribed medicines to make your stomach produce less acid, which just exacerbates the problem. There, that’s my crackpot theory of the day.I wonder if gastric reflux was such a widespread problem in the days of yore (25 years ago) when people weren’t convinced they were chronically dehydrated and had to drink water ALL THE TIME?

    I tend to take the opposite perspective. “Axiom: the best place to conserve water is in your body. It keeps your energy up. You’re stronger.”
