Do we overthink?


A study said “Water is good for you, but you should just drink it when you feel thirsty and not go overboard.”

(They really said “Given that excessive fluid consumption is a primary etiologic factor in EAH, using the innate thirst mechanism to guide fluid consumption is a strategy that should limit drinking in excess and developing hyponatremia while providing sufficient fluid to prevent excessive dehydration”.)

See Statement of the Third International Exercise-Associated Hyponatremia Consensus Development Conference, Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine: July 2015 – Volume 25 – Issue 4 – p 303–320


Another study found that “prolonged sitting isn’t necessarily bad for you, as long as you’re also getting exercise.”

A (third) study claims that “humans in pre-industrial societies stay up late and sleep 6 or 7 hours a night, just like most people today.”

Overthinking is recursive!
