Drinking too much water can be harmful

Is water healthy? It may sound strange but it really exists: a water intoxication. As with any food you can also ingest too much. According to Cardiologist Peter Klootwijk of the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, is drinking 3 liters of water per day normally the maximum. Do you drink under normal circumstances much more than you have the risk of water intoxication. In certain circumstances, you can drink more water than 3 liters of water per day. For example if you sport much or if you are perspiring by the warm weather. When you drink too much water decreases the salt content in the blood and adjust the cells on to it. The result is that the cells take up more water and swell. Thus started printing eg swollen brain cells against the nerve (risk of headaches). But if you have drinking so much water that the blood vessels are compressed by the cells, it creates a lack of oxygen, and there is a risk of unconsciousness or even death. Just make sure that you drink enough but do not overdo.
