At once? More than 2 gallons seems to be the dangerous area.
Amount of water required to kill someone . The amounts vary depending on your weight, physical activity, etc. Google "hyponatremia" for more information. This actually refe…rs to the amount of sodium in your bloodstream which is diluted by the amount of water you intake.
Yes. It's called drowning.
Hours after competing in a radio station contest to win a NintendoWii, 28-year-old Jennifer Strange was found dead in her Californiahome. The station's "Hold Your Wee for a Wi…i" challenge awarded thegame system to the contestant who could drink the most waterwithout having to take a trip to the bathroom. According topreliminary autopsy reports, Ms. Strange apparently died fromdrinking too much water too quickly, resulting in a conditioncalled water intoxication. At its most basic, water intoxication occurs when a person drinksso much water that the other nutrients in the body become dilutedto the point that they can no longer do their jobs. You've probablyheard the term electrolyte before. Many sports drinks provideelectrolytes in addition to fluids. Electrolytes are simply saltions, atoms with an overall positive or negative charge. Cells useelectrolytes to move fluids and nerve messages into and out ofcells and throughout the body. Without electrolytes, the body can'tfunction. Water intoxication causes an electrolyte imbalance. Thisimbalance affects concentrations of the ion sodium, and it leads toa condition called hyponatremia. In cases of water intoxication, it is extreme hyponatremia that canultimately cause coma and death. If it's caught early, treatmentwith IV fluids containing electrolytes can lead to a completerecovery. But, if left untreated, hyponatremia is fatal. Waterintoxication is basically one form of hyponatremia. The conditioncan also be caused by excessive sweating, prolonged dehydration andother diseases and conditions. So, what exactly happens when someone dies of hyponatremia as aresult of water intoxication? The severe sodium imbalance causesmassive cell damage. Sodium is a positively charged ion, and itsrole in the body is to circulate the fluids outside of cells. As aresult, sodium helps regulate blood pressure and maintain thesignals that let muscles operate properly, among other things.Cells actively maintain a precise sodium concentration in the body.Inside the cell, there are more electrolytes; outside the cell,there is more water. Cells keep sodium levels healthy by movingwater and electrolytes into and out of the cell to either dilute orincrease sodium levels in body fluids. But when someone drinks atremendous amount of water in a short period of time, and the waterdoes not contain any added electrolytes, the cellular maintenancesystem can't handle the level of sodium dilution that occurs. The result is that cells desperately try to increase the sodiumconcentration in body fluids by taking in tremendous amounts ofwater. Some cells can swell a great deal; others cannot. Braincells, which are packed tightly inside the skull, can end upbursting with the pressure of the water they are taking in. The exact amount of water you would have to consume to suffer fromwater intoxication is unknown. It varies with each individual.Symptoms of water intoxication include nausea, headache, muscleweakness and convulsions. In severe cases, coma and death comefairly quickly as a result of brain swelling. The condition isquite rare in the general population, but in distance athletics,it's a known risk. Athletes try to avoid it by drinking sportsdrinks instead of water during training and events. Answer: Here's a more precise statistic: an adult can process up to aboutone liter (quart) of excess water per hour. More than that amountper hour over several hours (or all at once), can be dangerous, forthe reason given in the above answer. If you spread your waterintake around over the course of the day (like 1-2 cups per hour),it won't hurt you.
If you weigh about 160 pounds, by the time you drink 5 GLASSES ( not bottles ) 5 GLASSES you are already to drunk to drive. When you have about 12 glasses you start puking, yo…u experience blurry vision and you might just fall over! At 14 glasses you're in dead trouble! medically! your heart starts to slow down and your liver is having trouble keeping up. At 15 glasses you get alcohol poisoning, you start having trouble standing, might begin to puke out your guts. Then when you have 18 glasses your heart and liver stop working, leading to death! Warning! Do not test this on your own! And never drink over 6 glasses of beer it can really do some damage to your body and health. Never drink and drive! It's stupid! You are a danger to yourself and everybody around you!

18 - 22, or.............. OZZY Everyone is different, depending on dependence. Don't try experimenting or anything, hey?
they wouldn't it is impossible to store it all you would pee youeself eventually
Well, if you mean on a short term basis, about 1-2 bottles will cause you to fall unconscious, depending on how often you drink. If you're looking to die from it, passing out …could be fatal if you aspirate it. Death by alcohol poisoning takes 2 bottles. . Alcohol can in large quantities, no matter what type, be lethal, and cause death not only by aspiration of vomit into the lungs but also by causing liver and irreversible liver failure. Alcohol poisoning is a common reason for admissions to Emergencies Rooms all over the world. Patients will then be given the appropriate treatment; some of it just making sure that the patient does not aspirate into the lungs before regaining consciousness. However in more severe cases can result in the affected person's life being maintained using e.g ventilator and renal dialysis. Liver failure will also cause the kidneys to fail. Hepato-renal failure tends to be irreversible i.e. the person will die. To return to the original answer it would most unlikely that one person, even if alcohol dependent, could drink 1 to 2 bottles of alcohol ( let alone ouzo!) without vomiting. If they were lucky they would vomit before finishing the first and avoid the dangers of unconsciousness.
Excessive drinking can be hazardous to everyone's health! It can be particularly stressful if you are the sober one taking care of your drunk roommate, who is vomiting while y…ou are trying to study for an exam. Some people laugh at the behavior of others who are drunk. Some think it's even funnier when they pass out. But there is nothing funny about the aspiration of vomit leading to asphyxiation or the poisoning of the respiratory center in the brain, both of which can result in death. Do you know about the dangers of alcohol poisoning? When should you seek professional help for a friend? Sadly enough, too many college students say they wish they would have sought medical treatment for a friend. Many end up feeling responsible for alcohol-related tragedies that could have easily been prevented. Common myths about sobering up include drinking black coffee, taking a cold bath or shower, sleeping it off, or walking it off. But these are just myths, and they don't work. The only thing that reverses the effects of alcohol is time-something you may not have if you are suffering from alcohol poisoning. And many different factors affect the level of intoxication of an individual, so it's difficult to gauge exactly how much is too much (Bac calculators). . What Happens to Your Body When You Get Alcohol Poisoning? . Alcohol depresses nerves that control involuntary actions such as breathing and the gag reflex (which prevents choking). A fatal dose of alcohol will eventually stop these functions. It is common for someone who drank excessive alcohol to vomit since alcohol is an irritant to the stomach. There is then the danger of choking on vomit, which could cause death by asphyxiation in a person who is not conscious because of intoxication. You should also know that a person's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) can continue to rise even while he or she is passed out. Even after a person stops drinking, alcohol in the stomach and intestine continues to enter the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body. It is dangerous to assume the person will be fine by sleeping it off.. Critical Signs and Symptoms of Alcohol Poisoning . Mental confusion, stupor, coma, or person cannot be roused. . Vomiting. . Seizures. . Slow breathing (fewer than eight breaths per minute). . Irregular breathing (10 seconds or more between breaths). . Hypothermia (low body temperature), bluish skin color, paleness. . What Should I Do If I Suspect Someone Has Alcohol Poisoning? . Know the danger signals. . Do not wait for all symptoms to be present. . Be aware that a person who has passed out may die. . If there is any suspicion of an alcohol overdose, call 911 for help. Don't try to guess the level of drunkenness. . What Can Happen to Someone With Alcohol Poisoning That Goes Untreated? . Victim chokes on his or her own vomit. . Breathing slows, becomes irregular, or stops. . Heart beats irregularly or stops. . Hypothermia (low body temperature). . Hypoglycemia (too little blood sugar) leads to seizures. . Untreated severe dehydration from vomiting can cause seizures, permanent brain damage, or death. Even if the victim lives, an alcohol overdose can lead to irreversible brain damage. Rapid binge drinking (which often happens on a bet or a dare) is especially dangerous because the victim can ingest a fatal dose before becoming unconscious. Don't be afraid to seek medical help for a friend who has had too much to drink. Don't worry that your friend may become angry or embarrassed-remember, you cared enough to help. Always be safe, not sorry..
It depends on you body weight and how hydrated you already are... from wikipedia "Nearly all deaths related to water intoxication in normal individuals have resulted either… from water drinking contests, in which individuals attempt to consume more than 1 liter (0.22 imp gal; 0.26 U.S. gal) of water over the course of just a few minutes, or long bouts of intensive exercise during which electrolytes are not properly replenished, yet massive amounts of fluid are still consumed."
it depends on your body weight and how hydrated you already are
Yes you can. It is called Hyper-hydration or water intoxication. The primary issue is that the vast quantity of water will wash out many of the nutrients and minerals the bo…dy requires to operate properly. The body has to maintain a balance of electrolytes in the bloodstream and tissues. Cerebral edema (swelling of the brain) is another serious risk. But this requires a substantial amount of water. Children have had fatal reactions to less than 3 liters of water over a few hours. But in adults, the critical amount would be more than 7 or 8 liters in a day, as properly functioning kidneys can remove much of the excess water. Yes you can. If you drink to much water you can drown your cells.The amount of water varies based on your weight,physical fitness,and athletic activities. Yes, it is possible to die of water intoxication/water poisoning. However, this requires you to drink excessive amounts of water (over a gallon) every day for an extended period of time.
I'm sorry to say that I just burst out laughing as I saw your question. Not in the *you're foolish way* but more like the *scrolls through medical questions and spots this que…stion* way. Honestly, it varies for everybody. There is no scientific answer for this and people can even hold in their urine before they realize that it's actually the time to visit the bathroom. If you're stomach is quite empty, chances are that you're going to have to go the bathroom sooner than if you drink water after you visit an "All You Can Eat Buffet".
It depends how dirty. Theres a piece of dust, or your drinking sewage.
One to two hours before your workout, drink 15 to 20 ounces (443 to 591 ml) . 15 minutes before your workout, drink between 8 and 10 ounces (237 to 296 ml) . During your wor…kout, drink another 8 ounces (237 ml) every 15 minutes. That works out to just under 1 litre of water for a 1 hour workout. They also mentioned the need to drink more during the summer or any time when you're sweating extra.
Yes. It can happen and it has happened, but it is very rare. The quantity of water that one must drink to die from hyperhydration is so great that usually only someone with a …mental illness, such as obsessive compulsive disorder, could manage to continue drinking water to fatal excess.
