All this talk about hydration when the syndromes to be feared most are excess water in the brain and the lungs. Shouldn’t we be drinking less?

No. The waterlogging of the brain or lungs is not a problem of water overload but of leakage from spaces where water is to spaces where is shouldn’t be. The lack of oxygen in cells causes this, not an excess of water.
