QotD, Ah, Those Provincial Europeans Edition.

Some faceless (well, he has a name, but he’s effectively faceless anyway) Eurocrat, on why bottled water companies in the EU may not indicate on their product that ‘regular consumption of significant amounts of water can reduce the risk of development of dehydration’:

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.

Those wacky Europeans.  God love ’em, but they’re weird.  Then again, they all seem convinced over on the mainland that this EU thing is the only bulwark against them playing Let’s All Set Fire To Each Other, Repeatedly, Until The Americans Come Over To Save Our Burning Rears again, so I suppose that this is an improvement.

(Via somebody or other.)

    Hmmm . . . it is true bottled water is/should be a concern over there. Not for the reason this dingus probably thinks. Mostly ’cause Armageddon be headin’ thar way.

    I’m not sure if I’m more puzzled by this guy saying drinking lots of water does not reduce the risk of dehydration or that the water company felt the need to say on their label that it does. Next I’ll see a label on a can of corn that says it reduces the risk of hunger. I’m sure someone would take issue with that too…
