Why Shouldn't We Drink Ocean Water?

Answer

Ocean water isn't safe for drinking because of the high amount of salt it contains. If you drink salt water, your body will actually lose water as it tries to dilute the excess salt. Sea water also contains a vast number of micro-organisms, some of which might just make you really, really sick.
