    Government NOT poking it's nose into the economy is the best thing Congress could do.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The EU often reminds me of the Byzantines when it comes to debating useless crap like this.

    Alas, the EU will debate these issues as well as nonsense like this.

    Re: EU bans claim that water can prevent dehydration

    While it is some what nonsense, then you should not take the Telegraph or the words of a UKIP member as the truth and holy grade. The fact they still ridicule the bent cucumber thing only shows how dishonest they are. There are still no bent cucumbers despite removing the rule.. can they explain that then?

    First of all, the ban is against bottled water producers.. not water in general.

    Second, the ban is quite sensible, since the bottled water producers have been trying to use "health" issues as a method of selling their overpriced water in a bottle. As an example, bottled water producers attempted at one time to promoted their high priced water as healthier than tap water.. this was of course struck down fast by the regulators as miss-leading.

    Thirdly the EU is in part right. Water alone does not prevent dehydration, especially bottled water. Why? Because bottled water lacks quite a few minerals and salts (and in the correct amounts), another critical part of combating dehydration. Only tap water contains these minerals and salts and can really combat dehydration correctly. Of course bottled water is an okay alternative if you are without tap water. In fact more than often you need to drink more bottled water to get the correct amount of minerals and salts to combat dehydration, which is of course very profitable for the bottled water companies.

    There are 3 types of dehydration. One is correctly a lack of water, and is rather rare. Another is lack of salts and minerals, far far far more common, and the final type is a balance of the two, also rather rare relatively speaking in Europe.

    Point is, this "banning" is one of the more sensible that is out to protect the EU consumer against false advertising and using of a product as a "health" product.. Bottled water is not "healthy" and since most European countries have good tap water, then it is at all times preferred to drink tap water to combat dehydration than drinking bottled water.

    And lets face it ... you might make fun of the EU due to over-regulation (and in part I agree), but at least the EU has not gone out and made Pizza into a vegetable so that kids can get even fatter.
