Do I Drink Too Much Water?

I heard water is just like steriods.

But if there was no water, we wouldn’t be able to learn how to swim, and then we’d all drown.

Have you considered running for president?

you can have hyponatremia (a dilution of sodium) from drinking too much water. This is usually done if you drink too much too quick. Your kidneys can filter between .9 and 1.5 liters of water an hour. If you drink alot of water over the whole day you will be fine. Hyponatremia or water intoxication is extremely rare and only worth thinking about if you are drinking large amounts of water in a sitting and are sweating profusely working out in very stressful conditions. Bottom line, dont worry about it.

I play baseaball, and I drink water when no one looky. I lead the league in twips to westwoom.

Gotta go, the walls have ears.
