    I'm not seeing the down side, here.

    Why don't you try drinking as much water as you can as fast as you can, and we'll see if Darwinism works in your case as well. Water is just like anything else, too much and it's bad for your body.

    Do you suppose it's occurred to them that those electric fences may actually prevent Mexicans who can't find jobs here from going back to Mexico?

    Re: EU bans claim that water can prevent dehydration

    The ruling, decision, advice, whatever you want to call it is of course an absolute joke. Water is of course absolutely necessary to avoid dehydration and to solve dehydration. And of course, strictly medically speaking, there is more to solving dehydration than merely water and by that I mean strictly H2O, this is because dehydration has both a medical definition and common definition. Absolute plain water doesn't help a person in need of electrolytes, the loss of which is considered by the medical definition to be dehydration the same as a loss of H2O in a person.

    Thats the point the EU council has made their decision on. Its a ridiculous decision because of the obvious reaction people will have to it, and because obviously water solves dehydration when the body is short of water, just not absolute pure water when the body needs electrolytes.

    The real problem with this isn't the gray area between medical definitions, its the amount of time, energy, and money spent on the small small issue of what it says on the side of a bottle of water.

    It's interesting that this focuses on bottle-water companies . . . and not the medical field and diet industries who really push the '8 glasses a day' motto. . .That came first

    The 8 glasses a day thing is actually based on reality, it's just been twisted to an extent. The body does need close to that amount of H2O intake per day, but you're not supposed to get most of it through drinking actual water. All of the food you eat throughout the day has varying degree of water content in it, and most solid substances are broken down when digested such that water is created. You need roughly that much water to counteract the water lost through sweat, respiration, and urination, but a large portion of it comes from food. Literally drinking 8 glasses of water a day is ridiculous though
