Should there be more educational coverage about hyponatremia ?


Edema is also a serious disease of the same family but it happens in the mountains.

oh this was a real concern to parents when i was in high school and ecstacy started getting popular. not sure if it's true or not but they thought people on ecstasy would drink a lot of water and od and die. not sure if it was from just being out of your head, super dehydrated, or too mmuch dancing, but taking ecstacy made you crave gallons of water. or so i was i told by squares who probably didn't know what they were talking about.

lol.

I wouldn't know. I'm 14, and I have never heard of ecstacy.

Unless it's sexual.

Ecstacy is a drug. There's a very funny family guy episode where Peter does ecstacy. Ecstacy makes everything fuzzy and cool side of the pillow.

Slang logic.

@OP

Water intoxication? I am not an expert, but dying from overdrinking water is probably not intoxication? I remember few years ago I read about similar case in local media. In hot summer an elderly man drank around 8 liters of ice cold water within around 30 minute or an hour and died.

Before that I had never even came to thought about it, it would be possible. In his case it although was more probable as you get older your kidneys are not exactly in shape.

But I believe you must force yourself rather hard to get to that point. Just think how much water you can drink up to point where you feel full? Its not even close th these amounts.

A little side-topic. To me it is a new level of idiocy of food-eating contests with puke buckets, alchol or now as I read even water drinking contests. Yeah, waiting to see that in olympics!

Another thing you see every-day whether summer-winner, Finnish-Turkish bath or simply drinking out of thirst, people like to consume ice-cold water thinking it would cool them down? I wonder when this knowledge get lost in transition? People need to drink body-temperature water, so stomach could start spreading it cells and around the body. Drinking cold-water in hot summer day means that first your body takes and hour or 2, depending how much you drink and starts heating it, before you could actually benefit from it. Some thing that commercials have profoundly altered peoples feeling-sensation, that they actually feel cool, breeze when drinking cold in hot-heat situations.

Every decent athlete, workmen knows by his/her experience the true negative side effects of cold water drinking during heavy physical activity!

Basically what I want to say is that aside from that hype intellectual talk, advancement in world, we actually can´t even eat nor drink properly!

But speaking about the water intoxication. You should look into about fluoride and chloride particles in water supplies. It is becoming more and more public, that it actually might be the cause for higher rate of "bad pregnacies", mis-carries, syndromes etc. + Decreases childrens mental and physical well-being + poisoning ourselves around the lifetime! In EU the norms are pretty good and restricted, but still needs some work!
