Excessive Water Intake Harmful

Too much of anything is bad. This principle applies even when it comes to drinking water.

Undoubtedly drinking water helps the kidneys function properly, prevent the body from getting dehydrated and helps clear skin. However, drinking excess of water can be harmful. Two deaths were reported of high school students from U.S. Both were foot ball players and they died of exercise-associated hyponatremia (low sodium levels in blood). Hyponatremia may occur when you take in more fluids than the body requires. Having too many fluids causes the cells to swell. This leads to muscle cramps, nausea and vomiting. The shocking news is that hyponatremia has been the cause of death in more than a dozen runners in the recent years.

    When we feel thirsty, it is an indication that our body requires water. Then it is good to drink two glasses of luke warm water. Drinking slightly warm water is good instead of cold water for digestion and normal stomach function.

    Kiran Shah ji, you have given a big lecture with a strong language, but conceded to what the writer of the article said. The writer said that ' excess of every thing is bad' and you have said '' drinking water 'CORRECTLY'……." ! So, be it water, food or even Oxygen which is a life preserver could become life taker if pure oxygen is inhaled for some time ! Most deadly viruses have been converted into life saving vaccines and ' correct' dose is given to save lives. So there has to be moderation in anything and everything a person should do. Even too much goodness is bad ! Hope you agree .
