Abstract : Increase in sweat output as a result of drinking large volumes of water, is confirmed. The view that lowering of plasma tonicity brought about by drinking water is the chief cause of this increase in sweat output, is also confirmed. Presence of extra salt in the body has not caused any significant change in the voluntary intake of water.
