Is drinking a 106 ounces of water a day bad for you because that's what i drink nothing else no soda and especially no caffeine i liove water?

Not too much but...: There is no consensus on how much water to drink but most agree it's wise to drink 1/2 to 2/3 ounce per pound of weight a day, so a 160 lb person should drink 80-107 oz./day. Drinking soda is very unhealthy. Water is the best thing to drink. However, if your city's water is fluoridated i advise drinking fluoride-free water.

Stop with water..: The amount of water you drink is actually detrimental to anyones health. Stop drinking so much because you are washing away all of the electrolytes in you body. Instead of water...Try drinks like gatorade and try not to drink so much. See if that helps the thirst and avoid caffein. It is a diuretic. ...Read more

I was wondering is drinking lightly salted water every day bad for your health?

I was wondering is drinking lightly salted water every day bad for your health?

Salt water drinking: a rinse of salt water is a good astringent for the gums and mouth and good for ulcers. I would be concerned about total salt intake. Can make a big difference in hypertension and heart disease in the future. I think people can become addicted to increasing levels of saltiness. After giving up added salt many people complain that prepared foods are "too Salty" ...Read more
