Ross TheSloth Armishaw Seriously though, shitty media is shitty.
A few years back, a couple of German scientists asked the EU's scientific & regulatory body for approval to make certain claims about water. The thing is, they filed it under a category about "diseases" and claimed that drinking water reduced the risk of development of dehydration.
The body came back with the verdict that drinking water does not "cure" dehydration in the conventional sense (as antibiotics might do for bacterial infections) and was rejected more on technical grounds than anything else.
Lo and behold, the national media ran with it saying "the EU is saying water doesn't help with dehydration!", which is not what they said at all.
