Is it harmful to drink 24 cups of water a day?

Is it harmful to drink 24 cups of water a day?

Probably not: The usual feeling is that 8 cups of liquid per day is sufficient. 24 cups would obligate you to never be far from a bathroom and unless you have an unusual problem with water metabolism, you body will simply eliminate the excess water with an outpouring of diluted urine.
