You Can Live 2 Weeks Without Food But Only 2 Days Without Water
Ya_Boi_Em

Pro

false
the record for people surviving without water is 21 days
and the average is about a week
whereas food and water and food are both necessities, one is not better than the other
water can provide nutrition and vitamins, and food can provide things to keep you hydrated
they are both of equal value
kthxbye

Estimating how long someone may live is very difficult. It"s usually discussed in terms of ranges; that is, hours to days, days to weeks, or weeks to months. It"s important to realize that every situation is different, that many factors are involved, and that everyone responds differently.

Fluid intake has the biggest effect on immediate survival. Our bodies tend to have several weeks worth of reserve energy from food stores, but lack of fluid causes problems with kidney function within a few days. When someone is no longer taking in any fluid, and if he or she is bedridden (and so needs little fluid) then this person may live as little as a few days or as long as a couple of weeks.
