Research by eNet has found that Hungarians don’t drink the right amount of fluids each day.
The study found that nearly two-thirds of respondents pay attention to their daily intake, half of them are aware of the recommended amount of fluid intake, but the majority still drink less than what is necessary.
The results show that six out of ten Hungarians care about their daily fluid intake, while a tenth of respondents don't care.
Every second respondent is aware of the daily recommended amount - 2 liters for adult women and 2.5 liters for adult men. The majority, however, drinks less than the recommended amount: an average of approximately 2 liters of liquid is consumed by the respondents; 2.2 liters by men and 1.8 liters by women.
Less than the required fluid consumption could be explained by the fact that people do not count the amount they drink daily.
