Another Load of Old Bollocks

BS
I am gemused to see that another piece of "research" promulgated by Nanny as "fact" appears now to be bollocks.

You recall that Nanny has been banging on a lot about "hydration" and making sure we drink several (8 to be precise) glasses of water a day?

Well my old muckers it turns out that this may in fact be unnecessary, and that humans can (if they eat sensibly and drink sensibly) hydrate themselves perfectly well without having to down extra glasses of water each day.

Dr Margaret McCartney, a GP from Glasgow, wrote in the BMJ stating (what most doctors already know) there is no scientific evidence that we need so much extra water.

How is that this myth about needing 8 glasses a day keeps getting spewed forth. Well it seems that some companies, such as Danone, have been pushing "research" to Nanny that supports the myth and have sponsored the 8 a day concept.

Danone?

Yes, that's right, they own several well known brands of bottled water.

  1. Hmmm.. it's a bit coincidental that government "experts" are currently warning us that unless we start cutting back on or water consumption Real Soon Now we'll be the next Sahara (or something like that). These are the same experts that want us to a brick in our toilet cisterns..

    So, stop drinking so much water and save the country!

  3. It is true to say that, in theory, one can get suffient fluids from the diet to make it almost unnecessary to drink additional water however, the modern diet in general terms, does not contain the right types of food to make this a reality.
    Again, everything in moderation and the use of commonsense will ensure the survival of the species.
    Too little water will lead to harm and too much water too, will lead to harm; many years ago a patient of mine ended up in a coma because he drank gallons and gallons of water over a couple of days, this upset the chemical balances in his body and left him very ill and with some long term brain damage.

    I know that if I don't have a glass of water to consume during the night or a couple of pints of water during the day, I will have a headache. Medical practioners also know that, if you actually feel thirsty, you have left it late to take onboard fluids.

    Once again; everything in moderation, use your own commonsense and listen to your body.....You are the best judge of what you need to keep your body well.

  4. How else will they get you to consume masses of mind-numbing flouride which keeps the population pacified and docile,adolph and joe tried it in thier "centers for the politically unreliable"and had great sucess,not a murmur of discontent,nowadays no guards,dogs or wire are required,but the effect is the same,now the people que up to have poison injected straight into thier blood stream,ingested through thier food,and breathe particulates every time an aircraft flies over them,leaving "con trails"which last for hours and require no heat source.

    I believe the water meme originated in some ancient 1950's US Army research to do with how much water was needed by a soldier operating in desert conditions.

    It's easy to imagine some bottled water marketing 1990's whizz-kid stumbling across this obscure factoid and having a eureka! brand campaign moment.
