Did you know if drink water for eight glass a day can cause of coma? this is the reasonDid you know if drink water for eight glass a day can cause of coma? this is the reason -  Many health experts recommend that we must drink eight glasses or about two liters of water per day.

So you have times to drinking about 2 liters of water during the day according to 'norm'?

Researchers from Australia say when drinking less than eight glasses a day, our condition still be fine.

But, when drinking more than our body needed, it can make us in a state of hyponatremia or water intoxication.

The body intoxication with more water than is required puts of our body into a state where the sodium content becomes very low, and it can causes of nausea, convulsions and may coma.

"There are cases when athletes in marathons drink too much water and die, because in certain circumstances, they obediently to follow this recommendation and drink far more than they need," said Michael Farrell, associate professor at Monash.

The study, that led by researchers from Monash University in Australia using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to reveal that it takes a threefold effort by the body when we drink too much.

"Here for the first time we found a body effort to adapt because it has to overcome some kind of resistance" Farrell said.


Although there is no magic formula for how much water that you need to consume during the day, the National Academy of Sciences recommends that women consume about 2.7 liters and 3.7 liters of men, not only from water but also from other drinks and foods which is loaded with water.

Fruits such as watermelon and strawberries for example contain more than 90 percent water weight.

Non-alcoholic drinks like coffee, tea, milk, juice and soda also contain plenty of water and help you stay hydrated. About 80 percent of the total water intake comes from drinking water and beverages - including caffeinated beverages - and another 20 percent from food.

In fact, the National Academics of Sciences itself states that most people meet their daily hydration needs by allowing thirst to be their guide.

The point is you have to drink when you are thirsty or you are in a state where you sweat more, and let your body determine how much you need.
