We are Water
Did you know that 99% of our body's molecules are Water Molecules?

If you're questioning this, it's true, most don’t realize that 99% of molecules in the human body are Water molecules. When we say 99% of molecules in the human body are Water, we are discussing the number percentage of molecules in the human body, not the percentage of mass weight of these molecules. 


The elemental composition of the human body can be looked at from the point of view of either mass composition, or atomic (molecular) composition. By body mass weight, the average human adult male is approximately 60% Water, although when measuring the number of molecules in the human body, these same Water molecules comprise 99% of the total number of molecules in the human body.


Even so, the above statistic of 60% is relatively vague quantitatively, because the Water content of the human body by weight actually exists in a range between 42% and 75%, because there can be considerable variation in the percentage of body water mass, based on a number of factors like age, health, weight, and gender.

For example, the Water percentage by body weight has been found to be, on average, 48% +/- for females and 58% +/-  for males; and the body weight of a newborn infant constitutes as much as 75%, whereas in an overweight person it could be as little as 45% Water by weight.
