Our need for water is an essential part of survival, but can we drink too much water and is it harmful to you?

Yes you can drink too much water causing water intoxication which can be fatal,one notable event happened just this past winter/spring in which people were competeing in a radio contest to see who could drink the most water without having to go to the bathroom in a certain amount of time,the prize a new game system the cost ? one of the competitors died and the radio personalitites lost their jobs as a result.

Water is a good thing but like with everything else only in moderation!

I drank too much water before and got really sick, it wasn’t because I was having a contest though. It hurts…don’t do it.

Yes, it can drain you of salts and nutrients. What you really need is to consume some bananas, for example, while drinking alot of water.
