It's hot and you're thirsty. You haven't found water yet. What will happen if you try and drink ocean water?

Answer All of the above.

Your body will urinate more frequently to flush out the high salt and mineral content in sea water. This will dehydrate you quickly as you lose more than what you consumed. Elevated blood pressure and heart rate are the body's compensation strategies for dehydration.
