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

Thank God we have places like the Mayo Clinic that are Intelligent.
What is our reaction to the outcome? Let us put it this way: We are neither surprised nor delighted.
The European Commission is wrong; it should have authorised the claim. That should be more than clear to anyone who has consumed water in the past, and who has not? We fear there is something wrong in the state of Europe.
Lewis Carroll would have had a field day with these folks.
“And I thought our bureaucrats were morons.”
“A MEETING OF 21 SCIENTISTS IN PARMA, ITALY, CONCLUDED THAT REDUCED WATER CONTENT IN THE BODY WAS A SYMPTOM OF DEHYDRATION AND NOT SOMETHING THAT DRINKING WATER COULD SUBSEQUENTLY CONTROL”
“PROF BRIAN RATCLIFFE, SPOKESMAN FOR THE NUTRITION SOCIETY, SAID DEHYDRATION WAS USUALLY CAUSED BY A CLINICAL CONDITION AND THAT ONE COULD REMAIN ADEQUATELY HYDRATED WITHOUT DRINKING WATER.”
Beam me up, Scotty. There’s no intelligent life down here.
Someone in the FDA is probably going to be in trouble for not catching this themselves.
But a consensus of scientists agreed that water doesn’t hydrate so it must be true...right Al Gore
I think the UN should spend 10 years and $50 Million to study this as well.
Brought to you by the same highly degreed, but obviously not the sharpest knives in the drawer bunch, that decreed man made global warming would end the world any time now ... tap, tap, tap, ...........
One of the commenters to the Telegraph article recommended a scientific test: Take the 21 scientists to the middle of the Sahara Desert and give 10 of them water and the other 11 nothing and leave them there for 30 days. Then checki which group was dehydrated.
Take these fine people out and drop them in the desert without water and leave them there for a week.
Actually if they had no food both groups would be dehydrated.
The ones with no water would die within three days or so. The ones who had water would live longer but without food they also would become dehydrated.
Intelligence is irrelevant.
Reason is futile.
In related news, cats have whiskers.
“Actually if they had no food both groups would be dehydrated.
The ones with no water would die within three days or so. The ones who had water would live longer but without food they also would become dehydrated.”
Have you ever seen a European drink a glass of water?
Wine, that’s what they drink, isn’t it? Never water?
On no account will they ever drink water, and not without good reason.
Water, that’s what I’m getting at, water. Mkmensinger, water is the source of all life. Seven-tenths of this earth’s surface is water. Why, do you realize that seventy percent of you is water?
And as human beings, you and I need fresh, pure water to replenish our precious bodily fluids.
Are you beginning to understand?
Mkmensinger. Mkmensinger, have you never wondered why I drink only distilled toilet water, or pondwater, and only pure-grain alcohol?
Have you ever heard of a thing called fluoridation. Fluoridation of water?
Well, do you know what it is?
Hand me that 30 cal, will you?
There’s no electrolytes in water.
