Will it hurt you if you drink a liter of pedialyte everyday?

Why would you?: It probably wouldn't hurt you (depends on the size of person drinking it). It replaces electrolytes, so someone with normal functioning kidneys would be able to appropriately deal with the consumed electrolytes. In my opinion, pedialyte is rather expensive and doesn't taste so good. I would try something else (gatorade?).
