Long-term dehydration causes a multi-system dysfunction in the entire physiology of the body, including:
1. DNA damage in the cell nucleus
2. Inefficiency and eventual loss of DNA repair system inside the cells
3. Cell receptor abnormalities and loss of balancing processes of the hormonal control systems
4. General immune system suppression, even at the level of the bone marrow, causing lack of ability to recognize abnormal cells, the inability to destroy them, and loss of the filter system for removal of abnormal and primitive genes from the time-refined and sophisticated gene pool in the body.
