A research shows this to those drinking 2litres of water daily

How many litres of water do you drink daily? It think it the recommendation that you have had from your young age. Two litres a day.

However a current research shows that the original estimate of two litres a day is more than required. "The water that we'd need to drink is the difference between the total water that we need to ingest and the amount that we get from our food," Prof John Speakman from the University of Aberdeen told the BBC.

According to the research the amount of water depends on the amount of food intake, type of food one takes, exercise levels, age. The two litres that are currently recommended scientifically unsupported.

In another research that theorizes death of famous actor Bruce Lee says that he may have died from dinking excess water. It has been found that in up to 40% of hospitalized persons and may cause death due to excessive water ingestion even in young healthy persons,” the researchers continue, “there is a need for a wider dissemination of the concept that excessive water intake can kill.”
