Water and death?

Did you know that you could drink to much water and it could cause your death? Don't worry you are not likely to do this unless this is what your trying to do, but apparently it flushes out the sodium in our body and can kill you. The only time it has been effective is when someone was trying to commit suicide, but would you have ever thought you could kill yourself by drinking to much water?

Dear baileycows, yes its true that if you drink toooo much water you can die from water intoxication. takes anywhere from as little as 1.8 liters to 4+ liters depending on what you do. consuming 3 liters in a short amount of time kills the average person. because of the sodium chloride
