Under ordinary conditions, the water balance between the cells and the fluids of the body is maintained at a constant level. The loss of water equals the intake and endogenous formation and is in the range of 2–4 L. Water intake is regulated mainly by “thirst,” and the output is controlled by antidiuretic hormone and the kidneys. If excessive amounts of water are ingested, the kidneys excrete the excess. On the other hand, if the fluid intake is low, the kidneys excrete a more concentrated urine so that less water is lost from the body.

A study tested whether peanut-allergic children could be helped to tolerate this food by consuming a tiny amount (1/1000th of a peanut) and progressively increasing the amount. 10 Others have used a similar technique to build tolerance of children severely allergic to milk with some success. Severe food allergies are becoming more common, but the cause is not quite clear.
