Abstract

Confusion has persisted for decades in the United States (U.S.) over how much plain water to drink, despite national water intake recommendations which are based on high quality scientific evidence. This editorial summarizes the definition, alignment and coordination of evidence that informs the current U.S. adequate intake (AI) recommendations for water. It highlights gaps in the evidence that perpetuate confusion and opportunity to address the gaps through strategic planning.
