    Do we really have to debate the necessity of water?

    I liked the "we are neither surprised nor delighted" comment. That was wonderful.
    I may be wrong.

    Well - all them bent bananas and curved cucumbers, eh?

    I mean - my gawd - the nerve of someone to have curved cucumbers in a salad with a banana on the side and a tall drink of ice cold water - geesh - nothing like becoming gilded by lies and drowning ones self in this faux sense of healthiness! The Humanity.

    Right, and while our economy stagnates and Congress is patently incapable of taking any substative action to address the situation, Republicans in Congress take the time to vote on a measure REaffirming that the U.S. motto is "in God we trust". I guess just in case someone forgot?

    Re: EU bans claim that water can prevent dehydration

    I agree with the commission's decision. As the Nutrition Society spokesman said "This claim is trying to imply that there is something special about bottled water which is not a reasonable claim.”.

    Plus, dehydration is not really a disease, it is a condition. The companies tried to make a claim basically trying to suggest that water (specifically bottled water) could keep them from developing the disease of dehydration. Although, yes, water will help keep people from getting dehydrated, a) any clean, fresh water source is sufficient in aiding this and b) it would be no more accurate to imply dehydration is a disease than it is to imply that simple cuts on your feet or skin are diseases. I don't think it would be any better for a shoe company to actually place the claim on their box that "wearing shoes helps prevent sore feet". Although the statement by itself is true, it does not give a true picture in that it omits the conditions that make it a completely accurate statement, such as the fact that wearing any shoes outside or in places where sharp objects or other foot hazards may be will help to prevent such things as well.

    "drink 6 of these or you may die of dehydration"

    hmm...sounds like a crappy claim to make.

    This is awesome! It's Darwinism at work. There are dumb ****s out there that will believe that water will not hydrate their bodies, not drink water in hot conditions, when there bodies are losing water by the gallons and they will die.

    I'm not seeing the down side, here.

    Obviously those damned euro-socialists aren't drinking enough water. When they piss it it looks like Guiness Stout. Personally I drink so much water and soda that my urine is actually potable. Just ask American.
