It's good to keep hydrated, but can you drink too much water so that you're doing harm rather than good?

@mismi,
Yes. You can screw up your electrolyte balance. It makes you feel drunk, actually.

PS You don't need Gatorade for electrolytes. Water with a little sugar or honey and salt will do the trick for about 1/10 of 1% of the cost.

Yes, you can die. Though it takes a LOT of water. Marathon runners have overhydrated themselves and died.
