Hyperhydration

It’s a fairly rare occurrence, but you can actually die from drinking too much water.  

I drink a few gallons spread out over the entire day, and I’m totally safe.  Drinking two gallons within an hour – that might be pushing it.  

The point is that we can get sick of anything if we get too much of something, even if, by itself, it’s generally a good thing.
