One of the leading international voices on hyponatremia is Tim Noakes, a sports science professor at the University of Cape Town in South Africa, who has published scores of articles on the perils of overdrinking.
Noakes' advice is to drink only when thirsty, because the body will instinctively know when it needs water. But critics say his benchmark is impossible to measure.
Studies have shown that hyponatremic victims are more likely to be female and athletes who have slower finishing times, but researchers do not know why.
The American College of Sports Medicine acknowledges that hyponatremia is a concern, but fears that too much emphasis on overhydrating may cause athletes to ignore drinking altogether

'The technique, called sprint-interval training, is used by athletes to improve performance

    • How about sitting in the galley during an actual heart surgery at the local hospital.

      Some hospitals have them, some don't.

      Go into the phone book and look up cardiologist.

      Offer to take one to lunch, these people have to eat, AND they can give you the inside scoop about exactly what you are getting yourself into.
