"EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact."

Our bureaucrats did come out with warning labels for the chemical H2O though. heh.
Idiotocracy... Brawndo, it’s what your body craves.. Water? You mean the stuff in the toilet?
You must be the smartest man in the world. LOL
I thought you needed electrolytes in water to hydrate. Water alone (filtered bottle water has all minerals removed) doesnt have enough. Wasnt that the reason GatorAide was developed for athletes?
JFTR, BBcode doesn't work here; you have to use HTML.
This reminds me of the kid who did a science fair project getting people to sign a petition to ban dihydrogen monoxide - a chemical compound that is contaminating the earth.
Ill bet that this is behind some process to kill off
to deny them water and let them die of thirst...
But they didnt let them dehydrate!!!
My guess is that food will be the next target of the EU bureaucrats.
This is what happens when you have a legislative body that sells legislation to the highest bidder.
The 3 year study defies all common sense, science and logic
We have a SCOTUS that declared CO2 a pollutant. I would say their morons are just as stupid as our morons.
That kid wasn’t alone. Penn & Teller did that too. It’s amazing how eager people were to ban it. You can find videos like that on Youtube.
I don’t know what their reasoning is, like where are they coming from. Were they just talking about plain water during heavy activity or just walking around in daily pursuits. I’m leaning towards their thinking on just plain non-active things. You need more than just plain water if you’re engaged in heavy sports or such.
Filtering cannot remove all minerals. The only thing that can do that is distillationand you'd need to do complex fractional distillation to remove contaminants that have lower boiling points than water. Reverse-osmosis filtration can remove between 90 and 99 percent of inorganic minerals, which puts it in second place, but the water from that is not harmful.
filtered bottle water has all minerals removed
The purpose of all government is to grant monopolies to the highest bidder.
The Eurocrats do not reason; they dictate.
