It can lead to keeling over along with things like heart attacks. Something to watch for if your doing hard work in the sun, or other wise, as the instinct is to just drink.
A trick we used to use in building was to get a small slice of lemon peal and place it in the water bottle. Not so it is tasted. You only need a small slice. It would change the PH of the water in a way that helped you not to lose so much ion.
Result -- It prevented that tired sluggish feeling that comes with drinking to much
water on a hot day, or when your working in the sun, i think they call it "water toxicity".
Another trick is to have a long sleave on your lower arm, moistened
