Ya, I figured that most on the Dimensions site didn't need that part. Though I guess the sentence at hand could be worded better. Because truly it is actually raising the threshold for water intoxication; there is less water to dilute down the electrolytes. WI only becomes a problem when the electrolytes aren't kept in balance.
