||In everyday life, at home and at work, even in moderate thermal conditions the human body loses water. The resulting water-mineral imbalance can have effects that are more or less harmful. Contents of the article: water loss, its origins and effects, and more particularly the effects of organic dehydration on the thermophysiological, cardiovascular and endocrinal responses of the human body; rehydration by oral ingestion and its efficiency depending on the type of drink ingested; recommendations for workers and consultants, based on existing data in the specialised literature and on the results of scientific researches such as those carried out at the Laboratory of Environmental Physiology and Psychology in Strasbourg (France).
