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?
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?
We have a SCOTUS that declared CO2 a pollutant. I would say their morons are just as stupid as our morons.
ya these people are all wet
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, ...........
In related news, cats have whiskers.
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?
This is moronocracy at it’s best (worst). Screw these bureaucratards.
They have wasted vast sums of money and time to determine that water does NOT help prevent ‘dehydration’ in the human body???
They appear to base their nonsense on an incoherent case that
(1) a medical condition of ‘dehydration’ may have causes other than relative intake of H2O,
(2) drinking bottled water is not UNIQUELY beneficial compared to other possible sources of H2O.
However,neither (1) nor (2) in any way undermines the simple claim that regular intake of THIS type of bottled water can prevent dehyrdation.
Sure, there can be other causes of dehydration than a below average water intake, and sure, there can be other ways to obtain H2O (including drinking water form a tap or stream, or getting H2O in other beverages etc.), but that in no way logically undermines the claim in dispute.
One could drink only tea or coffee, soda pop, etc. in sufficient quantities and never suffer dehydration (though caffeine is a diuretic and affects how much liquid one would need to consume). The fact that one does not uniquely NEED to drink bottled water (duh) in no way implies that the proposed label claim is false.
EU denies that water is wet.
And these kinds of idiots come to Newt and offer him 1 million to give them some opinions!...
And many here expect him to turn it down!... Well duuuugh..
