A Cool Medical Discovery ...

A Cool Medical Discovery ...

A musical coughing guy in the vicinity seems to be an eternal source of information. He seeded and initiated a brainstorming discussion over here and then he was instrumented in a lexical discovery. To combat his menace, myself and my friend brought in an interesting step. Whenever he makes his musical cough (which we nicknamed it as 'Click-Click-Tick'), we need to countermand his distraction attempt by an equally but an opposite musical sound. Sometimes 'Tit for Tat' works right? Here came the 'Bring in the Burp' scheme. But a burp normally comes only when your digestion is going in good progress.

Hence to bring in burp, we had to take enough water. A trial run of water consumption over the week did bring in miraculous fun in combating this cough menace. But I suddenly got a new confusion. Would so much water consumption bring any other issues? A quick hear-say based information consoled us that water is harmless and it actually cleans the blood circulation and the respiratory system. I also checked with a couple of doctors and Web Health Center. Along with this, a little more Google search got me interesting results. I would just thought I would share the merits of water.

1) As long as the water you are consuming is clean and pure, you are safe. In Chennai at least, we have canned waters and water purifiers everywhere.
2) An average of 13 cups (3 litres) is recommended for men and 9 cups (2.2 litres) of water is recommended for women.
3) In most cases, drinking water to any quantity is harmless. However, when excess water consumed is unable to be excreted by your body, then there is physiological condition called Hyponatremia (It is characterised by diluted blood or low sodium levels in blood).
4) When I checked with my doctor regarding condition (3), he actually told me that at least in Chennai, the conditions for (3) is really really remote considering the weather.
