Seventy percent of our body is composed of water. Magnetic resonance imaging has become widely applied in medicine because of the high water content in the human body. Water balance is dynamically and precisely regulated. The discovery of the water channel aquaporin (AQP) has made it possible to understand water dynamics at cellular and molecular levels. AQP plays important roles not only in epithelial fluid secretion and absorption, but also in cell volume regulation and cell migration. By proposing a new concept known as 'water biology,' an attempt is made to revisit human physiology and pathology from the aspect of water molecule dynamics in the body.
