Do You Know What is Water Toxicity?

Water toxicity is nothing but when you drink too much water and it upsets the electrolyte balance of your body. The condition in its extremity can be fatal and is as real as food poisoning. In a recent event, an Indiana based mom died after drinking too much water too quickly. She got severely dehydrated and drank 2 litres of water within 30 minutes causing tissues in her brain to swell and unfortunately, she could not make it.
So how much water is too much water?
Here’s a simple rule of thumb: You should drink 4 litres of water throughout the day, not at once. Any more than that can cause problems.
