8 glasses of water a day is the generally accepted daily norm of H2O for an adult. But is it really so? Scientists claim that such a volume of liquid is far from the truth. First, it is necessary to take into account the characteristics of each organism. Secondly, some people are forbidden to consume so much liquid due to chronic diseases.

Experts say excessive water consumption is hazardous to health. Even if you feel like a healthy person, water can be harmful.

Hyponatremia or water intoxication is symptomatically similar to dehydration. Therefore, people often think that they are suffering from a lack of water in the body, consuming it even more. Meanwhile, the body suffers from sodium deficiency.

Electrolyte imbalance, edema, bladder problems, and kidney dysfunction are just a few of the negative effects of excessive H2O consumption. Turkish nephrologist Serkan Yildiz warns that excessive drinking can cause a dysfunction in the body and lead to widespread inflammation.
