Do you die of thirst? Not really. Scishow explains: you die of cardiac arrest

If you do not drink water for 2-3 days, you die. But do you die of thirst or not? Well, you die of cardiac arrest. When mor than 10% of the water in your body is gone you are severe dehydrated and the body loses it’s electrolytes.

The electrolytes are ions from the cells and your blood stream that work well when you have enough water in your body and they are the ones that generate electricity throughout our bodies.

Without electrolytes electricity does not flow in our bodies and muscles, like the heart. When we do no have enough electricity to keep the heart moving then the cardiac arrest takes place. And pain. And death.

Drink water, please.
