All organisms need water to live. It is the medium that is used to move nutrients in and waste out, as well as to carry signals from one part of an organism to another. Additionally, plants use water and carbon dioxide to produce carbohydrates, their food source, using energy from the Sun. Without the hydrogen in water, that would be impossible.
