Hating humanity

Yes, you CAN die from too much water

A mother of three died from water intoxication after a radio station drinking competition, a California coroner said on Saturday. Jennifer Strange, 28, competed in Sacramento station KDND 107.9's "Hold Your Wee for a Wii" contest to try to win Nintendo's console for her children.

I've seen comments from people who said they didn't know this was possible. Maybe it is just all the time I spent on alt.suicide.holiday back in college, but, yes, you can die from an overdose of water. Too much water upsets the chemical balance of the body, mainly sodium, and it can cause cells to burst.
