"In a scarcely believable ­ruling, a panel of experts threw out a claim that regular water consumption is the best way to rehydrate the body.

The bizarre diktat from Brussels has far-reaching implications..."

Funny stuff from euro-weenies. How long before they libtards try and force this down our throats. Might even already be in Obozos care package.

Some international corporation must have patented a water-substitute that they paid the EU Parliament to force people to buy.

The purpose of government is to grant monopolies to corporations that pay sufficient tribute to politicians.

I see the German ham-fistedness leading to the eventual disintegration of the EU. It would be a blessing in disguise if it disappeared like the USSR.

Why haven't I heard about Dihydrogen Monoxide before?

Research conducted by award-winning U.S. scientist Nathan Zohner concluded that roughly 86 percent of the population supports a ban on dihydrogen monoxide. Although his results are preliminary, Zohner believes people need to pay closer attention to the information presented to them regarding Dihydrogen Monoxide. He adds that if more people knew the truth about DHMO then studies like the one he conducted would not be necessary.

A similar study conducted by U.S. researchers Patrick K. McCluskey and Matthew Kulick also found that nearly 90 percent of the citizens participating in their study were willing to sign a petition to support an outright ban on the use of Dihydrogen Monoxide in the United States.

Lol, they are getting very close to doing just that. Breathing is fine as long as you don't exhale.

German professors Dr Moritz Hagenmeyer and Dr Andreas Hahn, of the Institute for Food Science and Human Nutrition at Hanover Leibniz University, applied for approval for the seemingly uncontentious claim that “regular consumption of significant amounts of water can reduce the risk of development of dehydration”. However, bureaucrats refused to back them.

After a meeting in Italy a delegation of scientists concluded that reduced water content in the body was a symptom of dehydration rather than a risk factor that drinking water could control. Now their verdict has been turned into a regulation that will become UK law by December 6 and is bound to send shockwaves through the soft drinks industry.

Sounds like something our FDA would so. Government agencies exist to employ those lacking common sense.

"The EU has a long history of passing bizarre regulations, the most infamous being 1995 rules setting out dimensions for fruit and vegetables which led to excessively curved bananas and ugly carrots being banned."

Just... lol

That is a tautology. Reduced water content in the body was a symptom of reduced water content in the body.

Actually, these ads selling bottled water as healthy ARE full of cr@p. What the EU said was that you couldn’t sell bottled water with the claim that it is healthy, with the inference being that it is a superior mode of hydration. Yes, you SHOULD have had a V8.

Forget the cr@p about 8 glasses of water. 4 cups of milk, 2 cups of vegetable juice and a gatorade of a dilute fruit juice will be much healthier.

A spokesman for the Department of Health said: “Of course water hydrates. While we support the EU in preventing false claims about commercial products, we need to exercise common sense as far as possible.”

The Penny might have dropped… (I’m trying not to laugh.)

Dumbasses...now confirmed.

They banned ugly carrots? Boy, there’s people without enough real work to do.
“Egads! Francois! We have pulled up an ugly carrot!”
“How do we know it’s ugly?
“The EU uses THE BILL MAHER TEST. If the carrot looks like Bill Maher, then it is officially ugly.”
“Mon Dieu! That one looks just like Bill Maher! Quick! Put it back in the dirt! We’ll claim it’s a rutabaga.”

My head hurts. Could I reduce the risk of that by not reading about stupid stuff liberals do, or is it merely a symptom of a headache?

That is already implicit in the CO2 laws and regulations which we already have.
