Is it possible for a healthy person to die if drinking 14 litres mineral water, daily, for 3 days?

    That is enough to cause water intoxication, particularly if drunk over a short enough time each day.

    The minerals in most mineral watetd are not a suitable electrolyte balance to prevent this.

    Water intoxication can result in death.

    If suitable elevtrolytes are included and the wster is spread over a lengthy part of the day there are situations where this quantity of water intake is appropriate.
