Re: Exercise Associated Hyponatremic Encephalopathy, Gatorade and the ACSM

I'd like to share this story (W/f safe) of Cynthia Lucero, who followed the 1996 Gatorade/ACSM recommendation to drink "as much as tolerable"

http://www.apnewsarchive.com/2002/Fl...14d4d97c0448a3

"Friends said Lucero drank large amounts of Gatorade and looked well for most of the April 16 race. She later began to falter, then collapsed after telling a friend that she felt dehydrated and rubber-legged. She died later at a hospital."
