Fellow T-Nation Members, you may not have heard about this yet:
Essentially, these researchers are saying that over-consumption of water is really bad for your kidneys - they even mention that 16 glasses a day is 'extreme'.
Now, the vast majority of us on this site drink more than this and many of our coaches explicitely recommend up to a gallon (or more) a day of the clear stuff - so, what do we make of this latest research?
I like to follow the recommendation that if my urine isn't clear, I need water to keep fully hydrated...which leads me to drinking enough water to give these guys fits.
Would really love some insight from the members, specifically anything the nutritional & research gurus around here can offer (i.e. Berardi, Marion, Shugart, Cressey, Barr, Lowery, Mohr, etc.).
