I see here that most people agree that drinking a lot of water is a good way to improve your health, and most people could probably do with more water intake. However, I do want to point out that increasing your water intake is not some cure-all. Once you drink a certain amount (which varies based on activity and metabolism), your body is simply going to remove the rest as urine. If your urine is already clear or light yellow, you do not need to increase the amount of water you are drinking. Even though it would never be a concern for most people, hyponatremia is a condition that result from drinking so much water that the salt concentration in your blood drops. So don't get the idea that drinking a gallon per hour is a good thing. The best way to judge your hydration is you urine color. Aim for light yellow to clear.
