The amount of water a person should drink really varies. The speculated amount is 6 to 8 glasses daily. But should a 120-pound girl drink the same amount as a 200-pound man?
Water is designed to cool the body down, thus avoiding overheating. The body uses water in all its cells, organs, and tissues to help regulate its temperature and maintain other bodily functions.
Because your body loses water through breathing, sweating, and digestion, it’s important to re-hydrate by drinking water and eating foods that contain water.
The over-consumption of water will develop an intoxicating condition called “water drunk” and the symptoms of water intoxication are general — they can include confusion, disorientation, nausea, and vomiting.
