    You can die from drinking too much water. It’s not exactly the same as drowning, since drowning occurs when fluid gets in your lungs. Drinking too much water dilutes the electrolytes in your blood, and this causes your cells to swell. This is particularly dangerous when swelling begins in your brain, and what can lead to death. Water intoxication is called hyponatremia.
