    Water intoxication
    I saw something about it in Fortean times a couple of years ago.

    Good article. But what about if the person is relatively healthy (physically and mentally).

    I doubt it, it's like the "can you strangle your self to death" debate, every cell in the body would be screaming to stop, i don't think you could push past that point being mentally sound, I'm not sure though if someone with Prader-Willi syndrome could drink themselves to death?

    You would have a pretty much uncontrollable urge to vomit.

    Jonny was a chemist

    Jonny is no more

    What Jonny thought was H20 was H2S04.

    Acid is not involved. Or salt. When the 72 year old woman died, were her lungs full of so much water she actually "drowned".

    The answer is yes.

    A woman died in the U.S. a few years back from drinking too much water.

    I think it was in California. She was in some water drinking contest. Not sure if she won or not.
