Lluís Serra Majem, full academician of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED), is the editor of the work “Beverage consumption around the world: association with total water and energy intakes”, a monograph published by the Multidisciplinary Digital Publications Institute (MDPI) in December 2017 that collects all the material that Nutrients magazine devoted to water intake in a special issue that bore the same title. The work tries to evaluate the water consumption among the population of different climates and regions. “Fluid intake has hardly been evaluated, and hydration status has been measured only rarely in epidemiological studies, although guidelines have been established to determine how much water humans need to avoid dehydration and optimize physical and psychological function.
