Can I drink too much water?

    Yes definitely. Too much water can cause you cells to explode. Therefore, your body will essentially burst under the pressure.

    Yes, you can drink too much water. What happens when you drink too much water is that this leads water intoxication and to a related problem that results from the dilution of sodium in the body, which is called hyponatremia. 

    The essentials of what happens is this: 

    “When too much water enters the body’s cells, the tissues swell with the excess fluid. Your cells maintain a specific concentration gradient, so excess water outside the cells (the serum) draws sodium from within the cells out into the serum in an attempt to re-establish the necessary concentration. As more water accumulates, the serum sodium concentration drops — a condition known as hyponatremia.”
