YOU CAN LIVE WITHOUT WATER 3 TO 5 DAYS.
HOLDING YOU BREATH YOU MIGHT SURVIVE 3 MINUTES.
NO OXYGEN FOR 6 MINUTES AND YOU ARE MOST LIKELY DEAD.
Oxygen and nutrients are required by each of your roughly 100 million million cells that make up your body. For proper functioning and a correct metabolism the cells obtain their oxygen through the lungs where the hemoglobin in your blood picks up the oxygen and delivers it through a massive network of arteries, arterioles and the micro-circulation to each cell. This network is about 120 000km long inside our bodies and of which 75% or 90 000km, constitutes the so-called micro-circulation where the final blood diffusion and delivery / removal takes place.
If this network is blocked for any reason, the cells are starved of oxygen and nutrients. Furthermore the cells cannot get rid of their metabolic waste products. Makes sense right? Analogous to a serious traffic jam in a city, effective supply and removal fails and many functions are no longer carried out.
Even if you were to sit in a hyperbaric chamber, your body may get a little more oxygen at the mouth and into the lungs, but a partially restricted blood vessel network may not be able to distribute it effectively. We want to get all the oxygen to the places in the body where it is required.
The result of cellular oxygen starvation? A slow dying of cells will take place and many of them will simply dysfunction. If enough numbers of them in a particular area in your body are thus affected you will start to notice some symptoms. For example arthritis, rheumatism, diabetes, macular degeneration, tinnitus, kidney problems, erectile dysfunction and much more. These symptoms will get worse if no attention is given to the situation. Yet as I said, the blood micro-circulation is the key.
As we get older the cumulative effect of our life-styles will compound the situation. Ailments (often of the chronic type) will arise.
