Yes, it's called "water intoxication" but a healthy adult would have to actually try pretty hard to do so. haha

Yes it's something like a gallon an hour. A guy committed suicide in prison back home by drinking too much.

Sodium is important and a lack of causes the same symptoms as dehydration so your instinct is to drink more when really you need salt. Water is great and a def staple but so is salt and a right balance of the two.

I figured one could but also that I personally wouldn't need to worry,
thinking most of us would not :)

Wow a gallon an hour .. I would be in the bathroom all day long, LOL
Interesting on the guy in prison & imagine they had no idea what he was doing.
I prefer the water over salt but that being said I love my salty chips ;)

Yes. There was a radio station that got in trouble for having a water drinking contest. People were calling the radio warning them that too much water is dangerous, but they didn't listen. Someone ended up dying.

Yes, did you hear about the woman who died from drinking too much water trying to win a wii on a radio contest?

It is very unlikely to happen to a person who is drinking normally though. Not really something to worry about.

Wow how sad & scary on that,
Hope the station got in lots of trouble for that!
