Is it BAD to drink alot of water?
Posted 10/8/08
Hey. I saw this in some site. Hope it'll help.


"Drinking water at every opportunity can cause serious problems, such as hyponatraemia or water intoxication," Dr Dan Tunstall Pedoe, the London Marathon medical director, said.

"That leads to diluted sodium and other body salts, or electrolytes, in the blood, which can cause dizziness and respiratory problems. Some people collapse because of it, as happens quite frequently in the marathon."


...."More than that is not really advisable, unless it is very hot."

Water is not always pure and depending on what water you drink it has the possibilities to cause problems. Although this chance is less then one percent and wouldn't show up till way later in your life. There are always studies on water and I remember hearing about water, specifically tap water, has trace amounts of all/most daily chemicals you use such as... shampoo, cleaning products, etc.. Don't be worried though, water is good to flush out your body and drinking to much eh your fine. Depending on where you are you need different amounts of water daily but usually it's something like 8 tall glasses of water but hardly anyone drinks that much. Well I am rambling on now so I shall stop... right.... now. XD

No, too much water is not really unhealthy for you at all but how the fuck do you down 9 fucking litres of water in a day?
9 Litres.
4 glasses per litre
4 x 9 = 36
36 glasses / 16 waking hours = 2.25 glasses each hour
I'm going to try this for the next 2-3 hours. Will post results if I fall to some kind of disease or if I cannot handle the pressure of drinking said amount of water.

EDIT: Forgot.

i was wondering if someone drinks alot of water
can they make their insides too clean and soggy?
can it be damaging?


because i drink 9LITRES
of water water a day probally a bit more
i only drink that much because it makes my skin feel smooth!
and i heard that drinking a few glasses a day can make you lose
500calories?


(sorry i may have some spelling mistakes)


Me too lawl~ I thought I was the lamest one who cares a lot about my skin

But I'll give you one advice based on my experience. Don't drink immediately after you did an exercise vigorously. You have to jog for a while and then you'll stop gradually. Seriously I have this habit of drinking quickly and then my head goes dizzy and I feel like fainting.

^^ Good luck to you

And I think drinking plenty of water is fine.. but consuming too much might be bad..

I used to try to drink 8 glasses of water a day but I got tired of always going to the bathroom and how my belly feels so heavy , so I quit.

you can die if you drink too much water. 9 litres is too much.

You can make your skin smooth in others ways.
Eat, drink and exercise right instead.

I have a friend who drank alot of water. And because of that his urine became so white that he didn't notice that he accually had blood in it. It was a coincidence that the doctors noticed it
