Health problems are among the major threats that society is facing today. A recent survey on public health claims that “Around 62% of the people who are above 50 years of age in the USA, suffers from some or the other critical diseases”. The miserable medical status of the people led the physicians and doctors to find the root problems of the most common diseases. The doctors derived that two major reasons responsible for most of the health disorders are obesity and lack of water in the body. Thus, in order to prevent such diseases one must keep a check on his weight and daily water consumption. For Healthcare Industry it is quite difficult to keep a check on obesity and water-intake of each individual. On the other hand, people themselves cannot keep a regular check on those things in their busy schedule. Now, the main Question is – How to deal with such problem?
