Too much water harmful

Usually it is assumed that drinking more water is good for health, which is not true always. The body demands water by way of thirst and it is logical to provide the amount of water as per the bodys requirement. If excess or unwanted quantity of water is consumed, the body starts accumulating it in various tissues leading to swelling and pain. When this excess moisture accumulates in the joints and bony tissue, the same kind of swelling and pain would take place. It is as simple to understand as to how the wooden doors swell during monsoon when there is increased moisture in the atmosphere. To experience the truth behind this concept an example of any pain-killer will help us better. After consuming any pain-killer drug, the body sweats a lot and helps to relive the pain. This signifies that the body first eliminates some amount of moisture (water) and then controls the pain. Apparently this concept will offend your perception but this will also give you a new vision to think from different angle. There is a ritual in Hindus (Indians) which tells to drink teaspoon of water at the time of Sunset along with a prayer which is called Sandhya. This is good and has a scientific base too

too much!!
by shweta on Jul 09, 2005 01:22 AM  | Hide replies

I think its a nuisance...as water is teh only way to clear off all the impurities from the body. no one can drink too much of water..6-8 glasses is the max one can have..(a glass of abt 500 ml capacity)...so in my thinking, beyond that no one can actually drink!!!so there is no point in this article to worry abt...rather 6-8 is the normal range...

have u ever run for 8kms...? then u'll surely drink more than 3 litres easily during ur daytime? Wht author said is right? Thats why there are energy drinks (e.g. red Bull which u get in the market!! or there is a new drink called 'excess' in USA) these drinks r especially made to balance salt/water ratio.

I think one should be very clear while taking too much water so as it should not imbalance once sodium level,a good idea by the article.
