Death by Water?


My wife is a nurse, so she is always talking about strange medical things. The other day she was trying to tell me that you could die from drinking too much water. I found the thought of this crazy! I know you can drown from water and that's it. How else could water kill you? Water is our friend, we depend on it to live. So after betting her a million dollars she was wrong I decided to "google" it. What I found out was astonishing. For the first time in my marriage, my wife was right (I should get in trouble for that)! Drinking too much water can kill you. Here's the scoop:
"Water intoxication (also known as hyperhydration or water poisoning) is a potentially fatal disturbance in brain function that results when the normal balance of electrolytes in the body is pushed outside of safe limits by a very rapid intake of water."
To put in it Brogan terms..... WATER KILLS! So beware. Next time you crack open that bottled water, just know this....IT COULD KILL YOU
